“Fishing for fun slowly losing popularity”

So says this report in the Calgary Sun.

“[Statistics Canada] says 3.2 million adults bought fishing licences in Canada in 2005, down 25 per cent from the number who hit the water in 1995.”

No mention, sadly, of those who fish, not for fun but for the relief of some deep inner masochism that is almost sexual in its intensity.

I reckon that category is still booming.

Or is it just me?
