Profit = reinvestment, business growth, and both lead to jobs.

Our daughter, retired from 30 years in the CG Reserve, has a job teaching fly fishing; she accepts men in her classes but is more popular with women fly fishing students. She knows teaching because she has a Masters in Education which she got after the Academy.

I'm not sure fly fishing is popular with women for the right reasons. My reason is that it often catches fish when other methods will not -- even stripers. Women, on the other hand, fly fish because it implies nobility and houte monde -- wrong reason.

If they only fly fish because they have no interest in spin fishing, it's still a good thing.

I suppose it is still a good thing as you point out. We must remember that the more people fish and hunt the greater the advocacy, thus the support of such. Also, more funds raised through excise taxes on equip which go to conservation and land acquisition. In hunting it is Pittman-Robinson, I forget what that law is for fishing

I have met more than a few fisherman who love golf. Everyone playing golf is not fishing, usually anyway. I did bring a small collapsible set up to Doral one time. While waiting on a particular tee I hooked a peacock bass who promptly shot down a culvert...end of that idea.

In my early teens I played golf as a result of my caddying. My fishing buddy at the time was RI State golf champion one year -- among adults and he was only 16 years old. Those years summers we played golf one day and went fishing the other. He always outplayed me. In those days, around 1950, women were not allowed to play the course weekends.

Not to mention there were not a whole bunch of women fishing in 1950. I imagine that the early pioneers began around 1955 or 1960.

The woman pioneer that comes to mind is Joan Wulff. My wife wrote a surfcasting for women for SWS in the early 1970s. I know salmon fishing in Maine we never saw a woman on the river. There are many more women today. Less in hunting than fishing.
