Fishing Now No. 1 Cause of Sports-Related Eye Injuries

Put your sunglasses on for this news: According to Drs. Robert Morris and Douglas Witherspoon of the Callahan Eye Foundation at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, the flying lures and sinkers of a typical day on the water now cause more eye injuries than the flying elbows and fingers of your average basketball game. Until just two years ago, basketball, racquetball, and squash were at the top of the list, but fishing has now surpassed them all. So keep those glasses on. Read the report here.

No surprise. This country has 300 million people and our population is growing. Too many people are crowding into the same areas to fish.


Congratulations? Nice work? Way to go anglers!
