What angling does for the people of the DPRK, and Kim Il Sung - cabbage guru.

It could only be the DPRK update:

"Han Tong Man, secretary general of the [Anglers Association], told KCNA that it had done much toward encouraging angling in the country, helping the working people enjoy rich cultural and emotional life".  Source

Not sure I would consider the facilitation of 'the one that got away' tales as enriching one's emotional life, but what do I know? Fishing has never been my thing.

Meanwhile, old man Kim's adventures in a cabbage field:

"President Kim Il Sung gave field guidance to the Oryu Co-op Farm, Sadong District, Pyongyang one day in June Juche 63 (1974).  He went to a cabbage field where the cabbage grew well....After a while the President asked a farm official whether the cabbage had been hit by hailstones.  At that moment the official was very surprised.  Actually the cabbages had suffered a slight damage from hail when young. However, the cabbages were unusually in good condition so that it was difficult to find the marks of damage. The President found out instantly the marks that even the peasants and experts could hardly do. The officials were deeply moved by his extraordinary observation".

Try it - you might like it ...
Better than sitting watching the regurgitated tripe that passes for entertainment on the television. Real solitude, communing with nature, re-awakening your primitive hunting instinct and (if you fish for trout) you can take something home to impress your friends and provide a decent meal !

It has been a long time since I last cast out a line - 30 years minimum.

The world's moved on a lot since then. The pleasure of angling hasn't changed one bit !
