In a follow-up to a story we ran in September on animal rights group PETA’s latest campaign targeting fishermen – ‘Do anglers have small rods’ (read story here) – comes news the campaign has been refused billboard space in a Tasmanian airport.  

In the lead-up to this weekend’s opening of the National Fly Fishing Tournament, an airport advertising company has denied PETA space for placement of its anti-fishing ad at Launceston Airport. PETA’s billboard shows a fisherman with fishing rod extended from his lower midsection, and caption: “Are You Overcompensating for Something?”
