Make up your own mind instead of being led blindly by special interest groups, no matter which side of the aisle they are on.

Warning! Warning! Warning! If you plan to read the following Interim Report, please do so at your own risk. This report should only be read while laying down. Please do not try to operate large machinery while reading this report.

The final report hasn't been issued yet. The article doesn't say that there will be new regulations that hurt recreational fishing. It says the Task Force has quit receiving public input. Some in the industry, including Shimano, and organizations such as the CSF and the U.S. Recreational Fishing & Boating Coalition have voiced their concerns over the potential regulations and how they pertain to recreational fishing. I think they are looking for provisions that assure recreational fishing is not lumped in with commercial fishing when restricting areas from human use. They are worried that groups such as WWF, Greenpeace, Defenders of Wildlife, Pew Environment Group (who they also believe are the impetus for this Task Force) will have too much influence over the new regulations, which is troubling considering the anti-fishing bias they have shown in the past.

The point of this article is to offer a heads up regarding this executive order and it's potential impact on recreational fishing. There are so many executive orders that get signed by the President that many don't receive any outside scrutiny before they are enacted. If it's a concern to you, you can contact your Congressman and voice your concern. It's an issue that can be addressed by Congress and they can prevent such measures from being enacted. Of course it will help to see what their actual proposal will be before it's signed.
