The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) recently published a draft rule that would arbitrarily ban lead fishing tackle on certain National Wildlife Refuges.

This proposal provides no evidence that lead fishing tackle is harming any specific wildlife populations in the proposed areas. Anglers should have the option of choosing non-lead tackle alternatives but it is important to recognize that these alternatives generally come with the tradeoff of higher cost or poorer performance.

Tell the USFWS that anglers should continue to be allowed to use traditional fishing tackle as we have safely done for generations.
