“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountain is going home; that wildness is necessity; that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.”

PETA's anti-fishing campaign in Tasmania

From Fishing World magazine in Australia  - Link

PETA's latest campaign targeting fishermen - comes news the campaign has been refused billboard space in a Tasmanian airport.  

In the lead-up to this weekend's opening of the National Fly Fishing Tournament, an airport advertising company has denied PETA space for placement of its anti-fishing ad at Launceston Airport. PETA's billboard shows a fisherman with fishing rod extended from his lower midsection, and caption: "Are You Overcompensating for Something?"
According to PETA spokesman and "former angler" Jason Baker, "The point of our billboard is to knock anglers down to size for going after the littler guys."
