The Price of Fishing is Up
Pete over at Fishing Jones had some good comments about a post from Dave Richey's weblog about high fuel prices affecting anglers. When filling up your boat costs over $600, it can put a real cramp into your off shore fishing style. Be sure to read the posts at the links above.
While both these posts are related to fueling boats large boats, with most trout fishing being a couple of hours away from here lots of the guys who fish mountain trout streams are taking fewer trips as well. I know that the price of gas was pretty much the sole reason Paisly, Zugbug, and I found ourselves going to Arkansas with all our gear in a Toyota Corolla.
