Listen, I'd rather everyone fish because they want to fish, but if Instagram (and other social media) gets them interested, then who cares.
At least they're interested in fishing.
If there's going to be a future for fishing, besides the old men like me, it has to come from the next generations. If TikTok gets us there, or whatever virtual reality social media app that takes over the world next, then so be it.
Will I be fishing only for Instagram? No.
Will I be promoting my favorite pastime to the world? Hell yes.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
