No matter what liberals may say, Fishing, just like Hunting, logging, and farming, had to be done in order for humans to get to where we are today. With that being said, it is a survival method. "Catch and release" fishing, though, is for the most part, useless. It is understandable if you caught the wrong fish, the fish is too small, or whatnot, but if you've got a good enough to eat bass, catfish, bluegill, etc., you only look liberal by throwing it back in the water. Also, catch-and-release fishing, is also considered animal cruelty as the fish's suffering lasts as they swim throughout the water with a hole in the side their mouth.
