|During the holidays, fishermen decorate trees with bad casts.|
|Elk, not ants!|
|Two steelhead I caught at sunrise.|
It's great to visit Pacific Northwest coastal wilderness, and I honor it by picking up fishing line to stop birds from getting caught, and foam bait containers killing sea turtles 2000 miles away who mistake them for food. The message today is even far things are real. The Oceanic Society notes, "Hundreds of thousands of sea turtles, whales, and other marine mammals, and more than 1 million seabirds die each year from ocean pollution and ingestion or entanglement in marine debris. Marine debris is manmade waste that is directly or indirectly disposed of in oceans, rivers, and other waterways." Help pick it up.
