I am setting up a club for people WHO DONT ANGLE. This club will be solely for people who have no interest in the sport of Angling, who know nothing about it, nor have ever tried it, nor have any interest in ever tried.
In a nutshell, if you have never even heard of angling then you are a prime contender for membership!
The best thing about the Non Anglers Club is that we never meet, have no membership fees, have nothing in common, most of us arent even aware of others in the club. For us, not angling is not an issue in our lives at all.
However, we have had confrontations with Anglers, seeking to 'indoctrinate' us into the esoteria of Angling, why only last week I had a committed Angler telling me about his 'catches', you should have seen the smarmy look on his face. I decided to avoid confrontation and didnt mention my membership of the non Anglers club to him, best not to get into an argument with someone when the argument is so lopsided. I have no interest in Angling and never will, so why would I want someone trying to impress their love of Angling onto me? Hardly fair.
Dont get me wrong - if people want to Angle then fire away I say, so long as they dont get special treatment for their Angling then I can happily co-exist with Anglers, sure are some of my Family Anglers and Christmas at my folks is always wonderful because we all respect our love or our lack of love of Angling. So long as Angling isnt forced on me, then I have no issue with Angling.
I know it might seems strange to some people, the idea of a large, disparate group of people who's only point of commonality is their distinct lack of interest (or indeed belief) in something, being a homogenous group that shapes its thinking and it actiosn based on one, small lack of interest in something, but there you go.
I was wondering if anyone was aware of any other group that operates in a similar manner to us non anglers? Surely there must be?
I was thinking of inventing a secret handshake for us non Anglers, but I just found the idea to be a bit, well, unbelievable.
Thats us Non Anglers for you.
None of the above shenaniagans, thanks!
