This weekend I went fishing for the first time in along time. I had purchased a inexpensive rod/reel tackle combo from a local sports equipment store. Near my house is a small creek that feeds a somewhat small pond. In going I expected to possibly catch some small perch and such. Well I ended up catching 2 large catfish, a small bass, and the perch I expected. I did release them all back in to the water. The reason I bring this up is , what are others comments on using fishing in a survival situation? I fear that a large part of the young generation has lost the skills to fish, not to mention the ability to sit still for more than a few minutes. To some I am part of the young generation. I know I spend too much time in a virtual world and less time doing and practicing.
