<As for fishing, which is also absurd--the reason for that is
<historical, according to a NPS employee: Theodore Roosevelt liked to
<fish, and set the National Park system up so fishing was allowed.    

It is to bad that Theodore Roosevelt didn't enjoy hunting Leps or other
insects.  He also liked to hunt big game which is allowed in the national
Forests during animal seasons.  However don't carry a net in the area.
You will be fined at least $50.00 regardless of your intentions.  Why are
the permits for big game and fishing in the parks and forest so much
easier to get. I find this to be very unfair and extremely unreasonable.
