Iím sorry to hear you have been swallowed up in the rising tide of individualism Mark.
Thankfully not everyone follows that advice or we would be sunk as a society. But I donít think your quite that cynical or you wouldnít be Club Captain of the harriers. Your obviously doing it to keep the harriers going. There must be some altruism in those old bones Mark. I mean running is a thing we can all do as individuals. Donít need a club to run. do we? Iím sure you donít do it just to show off those legs to the ladies .
I think any fisherman needs to consider the wider world regardless of whether we like it or not. If no one gave a rats arse about fishing or the fish in the sea there would be none left. They would all be gone, courtesy of greed and selfishness of money hungry individuals who look after themselves first and no else. If you want to continue to catch fish you need to be visible to the people, as a club, as a competition organiser or as an affiliation. It sends a signal that thereís someone out there who cares. And keeps the those who would steal the resource on their toes and those who make a living from the resource that they have obligations too if they want to keep the money coming in.
Heaven forbid there come a day when no puts there hand up. They may not get the rewards they deserve but weíd be stuffed without them.
