Once again, National fishing week is upon us here in Southern Ontario (July 5- 13). For those of us hardcore anglers, its just another excuse to get out on the water to chase our lunker dreams. But what about those people who rarely fish, or for that matter, have never fished? Well this week is for you. Twice a year (once in February and again in July) periods of licence free fishing for Canadian residences are allowed. That means you can grab a rod with no license and fish to your hearts content. What a great way to try fishing with no upfront licensing fees!
For those of you who are avid anglers, consider asking a non-fisher or a youth out for a fish. Help the rest of the world see just what all the fuss is about when it comes to fishing. We are all ambassadors of our sport and the more people on the water = the more interest in protecting our fisheries.
As for me, my plans will include taking out some relatives for some exciting bass action. Heres hoping we can get a rod bend or two in!
Cheers From the Wild
