  The thing...
  Posted by: Al_A on Apr-25-13 11:42 PM (EST)
 

that anglers complain about is that they pay a more for their recreation than paddlers who don't fish pay. There are excise taxes on fishing equipment that raise the cost of it by something like 10%. There are fishing licenses to buy. That money goes to the state fish and game departments, and in many states the fish and game departments buy up the land and maintain public accesses with it that non-fishing paddlers happily use without paying anything for it.

As a paddling angler, I think it's absolutely stupid to have adversarial relationships between paddlers and anglers.
