I got an email from the Coosa Valley TU president, Robert Bold. It was sent to inspire me with a basis for my column. Here is his text from the email:

Monday afternoon I went to a heavily stocked local stream. It was a beautiful sunny day and 65 degrees. I wet waded in shorts. No fish were evident around the stocking tubes and I had no luck. I went to more obscure areas and ended up with no strikes and no fish. Still, it was a pleasant day and I had my dog with me, so once I fished an area I would throw a stick in the water for her. We had a great time up until the last spot I chose to try. On the bank was a “birds-nest” of monofilament fishing line. This is one of my trigger points. Not only is it littering but it is a danger to wildlife. The line and its hazard to wildlife went home with me and was disposed of properly.
