A recent column on asks the age-old question: “Why do dudes love fishing?” The writer, a woman named Faith Salie, goes on to hypothesize that maybe it’s to: fulfill primal urges, catch dinner, pursue democracy, mono-task, relax or bond with other dudes.

The reader with the cleverest, funniest or most insightful answer will win a medium-heavy spinning rod and reel combo and an assortment of Berkley soft plastic baits valued at over $60.

You have until July 26th to answer and you can leave as many comments as you want.
