“To me fishing is standing at the confluence of air, water and hope, knowing that under me or near me swim some of the most incredible inhabitants of our planet. Let’s fish conservatively.”

“It is our sincere hope that through the combined efforts of both the commercial and recreational fishing industries, as well as our state and federal lawmakers, that we can preserve one of our greatest treasures: the ocean world.”

“The ocean is a planet unto itself and it is up to all of us to ensure its healthy longevity. Please become involved in the preservation of our oceans, lakes and inland waters.”
