Fishing for Change

Recently a new bill was introduced in the Senate that many avid fishermen are applauding. The Sportsmen’s Heritage Act, part of the Farm Bill, is designed to enlarge hunters’ and fishermen’s access to public lands and to prevent legislation regulating the use of lead in ammunition and equipment. It also seeks to recognize the National Fish Habitat Partnership, which describes its mission as “to reverse declines in fish habitat across the United States.”
