In terms of the money that pays for stocking fish and habitat conservation,
etc., isn't there a 10% tax on sporting goods like guns, fishing poles,
ammo, lures, etc.? I can't remember the name of the tax act.

And in regards to bloodworm allergies, yes, you can become allergic to
them. I know people who are. I've read somewhere a theory that the
allergy is to the hemoglobin in the worms. Wearing good disposible gloves,
and a respirator when dealing with freeze dried bloodworms, are good ideas.
Or you could try training your fish to eat other foods like brine shrimp
or white worms. I suppose, if you wanted to really "wierd-out" your
doctor, you could ask for allergy shots.
