Abstract We used a survey of Minnesota anglers to examine coping response to problems encountered while fishing, extending the transactional stiess coping model beyond applications with wilderness and park visitors. Environmental/situational piobleins and intergroup conflict predicted behavioial and eugni lye c.oping. Intragroup conflict predictcd only cognitive coping. Cognitive coping was associated with lower satisfaction. Avid anglers experienced more problems and reported more coping but expressed greater satisfaction. They responded to intragroup conflic. through cognitve coping and envroninen al problems through behavioral coping. Among less-avid anglcrs, intragroup conflict was not related to coping, hut intergioup conflict was re ated to cogntive coping and environmental problems were strongly related to behavioral coping. Overt problems-especially with the fishing environment may trggei displacemen parteularly among less4nvolved anglers.
