The Wonder of Fishing
Since the beginning of time, mankind has sought fish as a food source. To most, catching fish was simply a means to an end...food for the family. To some, the pursuit was the awakening of an instinct that drew them to the water in search of the thrill of the "tap, tap" - something only a true fisherman really understands. This website is dedicated to those kindred spirits who have an inborn desire for fishing and seek knowledge about the science and sport of fishing.
