Mining litter cleaned up by young angler

Trevor Holley thought he had the fish of a lifetime last week when it turned out to be hundreds of feet of insulated wire. He pulled it all in and brought it back to camp.
The wire is the kind used by geological exploration companies and was probably left on the ice some previous winter.
Our anglers have encountered such debris many times over the years. It is a pity that mining companies have such little regard for the environment that they cannot be bothered to pick up after themselves.

I too have come across some of the same debris. It's a shame that these mining companies are leaving such things behind. If everyone did this just imagine how things would look in a few years. Disgusting to say the least.
