Among the things I thought about on my vacation (while driving through Nevada and such), is that fish are the only predators that I even occasionally eat. I had sort of assumed that the reason was because the meat of a carnivore tastes bad, but I think it might have more to do with the difficulty in sustaining large populations. Fish are an exception.

I had a pretty successful trip in terms of catching fish in large part due to having a high quality rod and reel. Joy gave them to me as a second anniversary present. (Thanks, dearest.) Longer casts and fewer tangles meant that my lure spent more time in the water attracting fish and less time in the air attracting dragonflys.
