I told I girl in my office that I was going fishing after work...

Today, she asked "Did you catch anything? Or do you have an unspoken rule with your wife, where if you don't bring any fish home, she isn't supposed to ask?"

I explained that I was carp fishing, etc, etc, and that I CPR= catch photograph release.

She laughed and was completely suprised by the practice of "catch and release".

Long story short, I've had numerous people ask me how my fishing trips have gone and if I caught any "bass".... only because that is the only fish they can think of that people fish for.

I think what sparks these heated debates on this forum is a mutual and strong passion for the sport AND how us as individual fisherman WANT to be PERCEIVED as "fisherman" by the non-fishing public.
