Fishing as a Survival Skill

Not coincidentally, with the approach of Easter (April 8th) and Passover (April 6-14) we are once again drawn to the mysterious linkage between this time of the year and fishing.
George holds that the reason lowland lakes fishing in many states doesn’t open until the following week has everything to do with marketing of various religious services. Gaye, though, wonders whether the Ichthys, the so-called “fish symbol” might have more to do with it.
Regardless, since this is the time of year, just before and a few weeks after the Spring Solstice, when topics turn to fishing, we thought to ask ourselves several reasonable questions about the pursuit of fishing as a survival skill.
