Anglers and everyone else need to be concerned about the massive amount of mono-filament fishing line that is being discarded into our waters. The damage on our marine resources is showing up more frequently than ever.

A few years back, I took part in a retrieval of the trashed fishing line at the old Washington Park on 61st Street. The trash bags full of the line we retrieved around the rocky shoreline astonished everyone involved.
