Midnight fishing offers different angling perspective

I always figured that writing an outdoor column had to be extremely easy. How hard can it be? You go fishing and then lie about it. Isn't that what all fishermen do anyway? Wrong. A couple nights ago, I kept wracking my brain, trying to get sufficiently inspired to write something worthy of you folks. Nothing seemed to work, not even wearing my fishing hat. Suddenly I had a brilliant idea! Instead of worrying about it, I'd go out in the fresh air and clear the cobwebs out of my mind by doing a little fishing.

Take a legislator fishing with you

As you may be aware, I have more than a passing interest in politics. Now you may be asking yourself "What's that have to do with fishing, hunting and other outdoor pursuits?" The answer is "Almost everything." Whether you want to legalize mountain lion hunting because there are too many lions and attacks on women and children are becoming common, or if you want more trout planted in your favorite stream, the answers you get are part of a political process.
