I fish, I vote, I rally……………….DC 2/24/10

More than 4,000 fishermen and their supporters shouted those words in front of the Capitol on Wednesday during the United We Fish rally to protest federal fishing regulations imposed by the Magnuson-Stevens Act.

Fishermen from New Jersey to the Florida Keys and from Alaska to California came to Washington, D.C., by the busload rally to change the Magnuson-Stevens Act.

A sea of fisherman and women, recreation, commercial, charters… all came together.

and every sign had a message…

another great sign

The most photographed sign of the day.

the message loud and clear.
