Seems this got blown way out of proportion. I don't think Wal-mart is trying to put an end of recreational fishing. It looks more like Safeway vs. Wal-Mart and Safeway is using this donation of Wal-Marts to make them look like bad guys. It's propaganda.

From what I can see, they are attempting to donate to a conservation. This conservations protects certain areas. I think that is a great idea. I would rather have certain areas off limits to fish than not be able to catch any fish at all. Our own government has more to do with the demise of recreational fishing than any other organization.

With that said,Wal-mart does great things for the communities they are in. True they are not the 'Made in the USA' they once were, but who is anymore? I for one like going somewhere I can get everything all at once without driving from store to store.

I would recommend doing your own research before jumping on the bandwagon.

WalMart had donated HUGE amounts for fishing and hunting both locally and nationwide. I have seen where local stores donate tons of buggys of shotgun shells and fishing gear for local youth outdoor events. I dont agree with eveything that Walmart does by no means but at least do some research before you start preaching about something you dont know all the details about.

I personally love walmart. I have bought tge best crap there. I have bought rod and reel combos for like 40$ which have not failed me and were just great overall. Just like mentioned, sure, walmart isn't the "only made in the US" store, but as said, who is and don't we all just want the best stuff for the bey price?? So it's our own cheap ass fault everyone gets their products made where it costs the least. Unfortunate but true.
I don't see why walmart would want to stop recreational fishing, and why on earth would they still be selling fishing stuff?? Makes no sense.
Just my 2cents worth,

my wife works for walmart and has for a number of years now, and i happen to know that they donate alot of stuff to the local schools here in town, i myself a father of 2 would rather see them donate to the schools than to somebody wanting to go fishing, dont get me wrong i love fishing but at the same time my kids education is more important to me than any fish i may catch out there. so im just saying that the local walmarts here in town donate alot to THIS community that alot of us do not see.
