Maine Is at War Over Ice Fishing
RAGGED LAKE, Maine -- At public hearings, on the Internet, ice-fishing Mainers call this a class war.
N.J. born Ted Koffman fly-fished in Maine as a kid, still does. Snowmobiles/heated fishing shacks, he says, "are out of keeping with the call of the loon."
Thom Watson, born in Louisiana: "My dad, a duck hunter, used to say ice fishing was like a hunter sitting by a fireplace looking up the chimney waiting for a bird to fly over."
