Why I am a Conservationist

© 2008 Blake S. Rasch

"A person who advocates or promotes conservation, esp. of natural resources."

Random House Unabridged Dictionary

Hi, my name is Blake. Thanks for stopping by, I have a lot of stuff to share with you. I'm a outdoorsman so I go on lots of outdoor adventures. I like to go camping with friends and family. I love fishing and I hope to be a fishing guide as my future career. I have many fishing places that I would like to tell you about. I've got Carp Lake, Bass Lake, Catfish Lake, and Panfish Pond. I spend a lot of time at all of them especially Carp Lake.

Because I spend so much time fishing it is important for me to conserve these resources. I want to be an outdoorsman for the rest of my life. When I go fishing I always carry a bag with me in case I find some trash, and I'm always on the lookout for things that don't belong in the water. For instance the other day I found two chairs in Carp Lake that I pulled out of the water with a bridge gaff.

In order to conserve natural resources I ride my bike everywhere I go. Bikes let me get to places I need to go to fast and can get into places cars can't. I'm hoping that soon I get a bike trailer to pull behind my bike so I can carry more fishing equipment with me.

It's really important for all of us to help and conserve the environment . I really love the outdoors and I hope that you do too.

See you next time at Strikes, Bites, and Fights.

I'm so happy to see the next generation of outdoorsmen taking to the blogging world. Good for you Blake!

Keep writing. We need more voices speaking up for protecting the places where we hunt and fish.
