THE ICAST SHUFFLE: GHM EDITOR FRED GARTH (RIGHT) BLOGS ABOUT ODDITIES OF THE RECENT ICAST FISHING SHOW

2016-12-07
Fred Garth

As a writer, I love acronyms. I’m geeky that way. And social media has rocketed them to mega-celebrity status with LOL, OMG, WTF, IMO and IDK. But, sometimes you wonder which came first, the title or the acronym. Take ICAST – for example. It’s a fishing show. Coincidence? I think not. The International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades is a mouthful to say but the acronym is snappy. I’m sure the committee ruminated on that for weeks before the light bulb popped. REEF is another one. The Reef Environmental Education Foundation. Clever!

Imagine looking out your window and a seeing a piece of land the size of a football field disappearing. Now, imagine a football field vanishing every 45 minutes.

Since 1930, 1,900 square miles of wetlands have been lost, and it’s estimated that 34 years from now, by 2050, another 700 square miles will be gone.
