    I recently was informed that I am no longer a fisherman but a fisher. My apologies to the real fisher - a medium sized mammal(Martes pennanti) of the weasel family.

    Did the P.C. police give you a citation?

    Actually, you're an angler... you figure the correct angle.

    PC is kind'a funny. You still call a man mail carrier a Mailman but you call a female mail carrier a " mail carrier", not a MailWOMAN.

    I guess a female fireman is a "firefighter". A female police officer is a "police officer" but a male police officer is a policeman.

    So obviously, if it is a woman who is fly fishing, she is a fly fisher, not a fly fisherman.

    I'm kind'a think'n the word "man" is no longer PC as part of a designation. ... unless you're a guy. :D
