Hey, fishermen (and fisherwomen)! Please, please, please properly dispose of your fishing line, hooks, lures, and sinkers. If you don’t you are helping kill birds. The New York Times has a good article on this menace to the avian world today.

Not just city parks. Go to the most “remote” ponds in northern Michigan and you see wads of fishing line and lures everywhere…in between the beer cans and cigarette butts, I mean.
I have friends that fish, smoke, and drink cheap beer (all at the same time) and could still be card-carrying Leave-No-Trace members. It’s not that difficult.
