Fish On
Misogynist Danish Fishing Mag?

The so-called"fish girl" feature (NSFW) came under fire this week after it was brought to the attention of the non-angling public by way of a Danish blog(NSFW) dedicated to “gender photography.”

He spears the worm with the hook. The worm flails and then goes limp. King stands, tension draining from his face. He raises his fishing pole and casts. “I needed this,” he says. “I really needed this.”
