In order to understand our selves, we must first understand fishing. Many an afternoon has been enjoyed by a family, bonding over the discussion of fishing. Cited by many as the single most important influence on post modern micro eco compartmentalism, fishing is featuring more and more in the ideals of the young and upwardly mobile. Often it is seen as both a help and a hinderence to the over 50, obviously. Hold onto your hats as we begin a journey into fishing.
Society is a simple word with a very complex definition. When Lance Bandaner said 'twelve times I've traversed the ocean of youthful ambition but society still collects my foot prints'  he, contrary to my learned colleague Sir George Allen’s recent publication ‘Into the eye of , could not have been referring to eighteenth century beliefs regarding society. Much has been said about the influence of the media on fishing. Observers claim it helps to provide some sort of equilibrium in this world of ever changing, always yearning chaos.
Of paramount importance to any study of fishing within its context, is understanding the ideals of society. Clearly it promotes higher individualism and obeyence of instinct. As soon as a child meets fishing they are changed.
The dictionary defines economics as 'the social science concerned with the production, distribution, exchange, and consumption of goods and services'. We will primarily be focusing on the Simple-Many-Pies model of economics.
There is no longer a need to argue the importance of fishing, it is clear to see that the results speak for themselves. The question which surfaces now is, how? Obviously the annual military budget cannot sustain this instability for long. The financial press seems unable to make up its mind on these issues which unsettles investors.
Politics - smolitics! Comparing the general view of politics held by the poor of the west with those of the east can be like comparing the two, equally popular approaches to fishing. If the reader is unaware of these, they need only to turn on the television, or pick up a newspaper or popular magazine.
In the words of one of the great political analysts Aaron Shandy 'The success of any political system can only truly be assessed once the fat lady has sung.'  Considered by many to be one of the 'Founding Fathers' of fishing, his words cannot be over-looked. Perhaps the word which sums up the importance of fishing to politics is 'participation'.I hope, for our sake that fishing will endure.
What can we conclude? Well, fishing must not be allowed to get in the way of the bigger question: why are we here? Putting this aside its of great importance. It fills a hole, provides financial security and is always fashionably late.
I will leave you with the words of Hollywood's Christina Garfunkel: 'You win some, you loose some, but fishing wins most often.'
