Dingleberry7 is wrong!

I am a club member of the Brooklyn fishing club and not only do they promote legal tactics- they advocate for them. They have catch and release tournaments and only post pictures of legal sizes catch and cooks. I am not sure where and how you would think this other then just blindly saying that to try to deface an actual good brand and healthy thriving fishing community for no good reason other then to hate. Why don’t you join the club and find out what they are about.
