FISHING -- Anglers have a responsibility to gear up properly to reduce break offs and clean up line and tackle as much as possible, whether it's theirs or that of another fisherman.
A lot of critters are out there making a living in and under favorite fishing holes. Fishing gear, from spent lead shot to monofilament can kill them.
While photographing waterfowl at Fernan Lake on Thursday, local birder Larry Krumpelman shot the image above of a male wood duck with fishing line hanging from its mouth -- and probably a hook down its throat.
Something to thing about.
