Wait a Minute.. Who Cares if You are an Angler or Fisherman? Somebody Does... Believe it!

Let's Start with Official Definitions

Angler
A person catching fish or shellfish with no intent to sell. This includes people releasing the catch. An angler is one who uses a rod and reel to catch any species of fish.

A scheming person; someone who schemes to gain an advantage
a fisherman who uses a hook and line.

The angler, also sometimes called fishing-frog, frog-fish, or sea-devil (Lophius piscatorius), is a fish well known off the coasts of Great Britain and much of Europe. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angler
Fisherman
Someone whose occupation is catching fish.

A fisherman is a person who engages in the activity of fishing. Some fishermen do this as their profession, and may belong to a cooperative, corporation, or union. Other people fish for sport, such as most of anglers (who fish with a hook). Fishing may also be a subsistence activity.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisherman

One who engages in fishing for sport or occupation. See the Difference Yet? Summarizing based on the definitions, tells us this...

From Angler Definitions:
A person catching fish or shellfish with no intent to sell. This includes people releasing the catch.anglers catch fish. Apparently fishermen only "engage in the activity of fishing". That makes most of us fishermen, not anglers.
An angler is one who uses a rod and reel to catch any species of fish.t says anglers use a rod and reel. But, don't fishermen? Well by definition, most of us have become anglers again.
An angler is a scheming person; someone who schemes to gain an advantage a fisherman who uses a hook and line.



From Fisherman Definitions:
Someone whose occupation is catching fish.
Hey even the definition says a fisherman's "occupation" is catching fish -- it
One who engages in fishing for sport or occupation.

Now... Let's Look at Internet Search Characteristics

Google ads appear when searching for ANGLER in Google -- no ads appear when searching for FISHERMAN.
This must say businesses must want to SELL to anglers, NOT fishermen! When searching for ANGLER TIPS there are about 1.1 million results... for FISHERMAN TIPS there are 1.9 million results.with the "catching" and "trying to catch fish" theme.
Hopefully You Took Time to Read Above Just How we Arrived at this Conclusion...

An ANGLER catches fish... A FISHERMAN does not!
ANGLERS tell bigger fish stories than do FISHERMEN!
Anglers are better fishermen than fishermen...
OR is that anglers are better anglers than fishermen?
ANGLERS have money... FISHERMEN don't... (maybe that explains it all... more $$$ for boats, tackle, guides, books, makes you a better fisherman (or is that a better angler and not a fisherman?)found here: http://www.anglersaddiction.com/angler-or-fisherman.html

The worst thing is, it is highly contaegous.
