Taiwan Angler

My friend Chris has started a blog called Taiwan Angler. Chris is rediscovering his passion for this sport. He's already put in a lot of effort to come up with an interesting site. I think it might be the first in English on this topic too. In the future, look for lots of information on angling around the beautiful country of Taiwan. You'll find his Web site at this address: http://www.taiwanangler.com/

Chris is a smart guy, so expect insight on how concepts of marine biology can and have affected our economy, what tackle to get to attract the big ones or even what beer to chug whilst chasing a lazy Sunday away on one of Taiwan's streams, lakes or ponds.

Ah, so that's what the lad was up to browsing those sites. Thought he just had fixation with tilapia.

No, the guy knows his fish, and his beer. It's a good start on an original topic. I hope he doesn't run out of energy and keeps it up.

It is said that more people start fishing when recession hits the society harder. I don’t know if it is because more people are out of work or they need fish for food. The rivers are so clean when we left the island years back but we have kept hearing that the streams are all polluted and contaminated nowadays. We are cautioned not to eat too much fresh water fish in the States for avoiding mercury poisoning. Are those anglers in Taiwan fishing just for the sake of enjoying the game of fishing or supplement their catch for food?

An interesting question, Anonymous. It inspired a lengthier response on my blog.

Pablo,

Why do you continuously link to my blog?

First, your blog is in Spanish. My blog is in English and Chinese. Second, my blog is mainly Taiwan-related. Yours is about stamps. And, as far as I can tell, you don't even have any Taiwanese stamps.
