Reader Steve Leibel sends word from Ye Olde Merry Englande that the Brits are spending $33 million over the next decade to lure more "women and minorities" into fishing. Some of the money will go to a pamphlet that says in part:
"Angling does not discriminate against gender, race, age or athletic ability" and the "Government is interested in angling in the context of social inclusion in deprived urban areas," the leaflet says.
There are also pilot programs, such as an effort in Swansea that taught Muslim women and children to fish by experts from the Salmon and Trout Association.
