Young fella, perhaps it would be better to accept the fact that your post on a fly fishing forum frequented by ardent fly fishermen & women who have a great respect for the outdoors and its many resources was in poor taste, learn from the experience, and move on. If it makes you feel better, call me whatever you like; I just consider the source anyway. Here's hoping that you have a better day.

Well guess you should stop eating Beef, pork and chicken. You ever watch them raise and slaughter your meet. That sure is humane. Your joke. Your probably one of those guys who just sits behind a computer saying your 2cents and never have touched a rod....

I bet he hasn't tossed corn on a flyrod before.
Seriously caveman, you are a giant parody of yourself without even realizing it. No one cares that youkilled a couple fish and didn't eat them, as you have stated they are problematic in some areas. But your demeanor and actions make me think your ethical standpoint on the subject is probably akin to the kid that was snagging chums and bashing their heads in before dumping them in the ditch. (There was a video posted last year sometime)

There was a massive US Fish Commission carp stocking campaign in the early 1900's. Carp were lauded as the game fish and food fish of the future. Millions of them were stocked all over our fair land.

I do remember once being like Caveman. I was in junior high and caught and killed a large carp in one of the "I-82" ponds near Yakima. My friends and I stuffed it snugly into the mailbox of a grumpy old man that lived in our neighborhood.

I do regret that incident (and a few others). Hopefully it's not too late for Caveman to learn the error of his ways. I would strongly suggest not giving him your address for the aforementioned reason.

"In Washington, a fishing license is not required to fish for carp. There is also no daily limit. However, please be responsible and harvest only what you will use. Fishing for carp is normally done in two ways, the traditional angling methods using hook and line and with bow and arrow (bow-fishing)."

One might note that WDFW's pamphlet doesn't include information on using corn with your fly rod. You know, you come across awfully testy for a guy that's so confident he's right. If I didn't know any better, I might think you had your doubts.
