    Exactly this. I've never made grammar corrections on this site, but it seemed necessary in this instance.

    No, nothing's changed. While there are certainly bad co-managers out there, the Stillaguamish Tribe is not one of them. Without a doubt, they care more about that river than "our" co-manager and the State of Washington does.

    I quit fishing the Stilly once I heard there were wolves in the area.
    They've been know to chase anglers downstream where they get caught up in gill nets. Once you are stuck in the net, you'll never get out due to your lanyard, nipper zinger, studded boots, strap on wading staff and ascot getting tangled in the net.
    Stay away...you can never be to safe.

    True story, this is why I stopped wearing an ascot when I fish.

    It still cracks me up that everyone wants to call me ignorant for MY opinion. I could care less what's right or wrong and what the treaty spells out to a T. it's MY opinion and All the, "Educated" folks on here wanted a chance to show they've looked up judge Boldt on the Internet once and pretend to be well versed in native American relations. My opinion wouldn't even had been posted if everyone would have taken the thread for what it was, letting people know the stilly will most likely be slow for the weekend.
    And don't worry, I'll try to work on my grammar for future fishing forum posts since it has everyone's panties in a bunch.

    He's got a good point. Opinions can't be ignorant. Only facts can do that. And Hitler. Fuck Hitler. That's MY opinion anyway.

    Stalin too. And Pol Pot.

    (Grammatical errors in the text above are intentional for the purpose of underscoring MY distaste for Marxist dictators of the mid-20th century).

    I havent been in washington long, so I cant speak to the politics of tribal netting. But in all of this I truly think that the real importantance here isnt indian rights or a fishermans equality but the effect both are having on the populations of adronomous fish. Both are equally guilty and its sad. I hope that things can change or one day we will all look back with regrets.

    Why's it got to be "panties" in a bunch? Why not "boxer shorts" or "bananna hammocks" or "Jock Straps"? You racist and sexist too?

    :D

    Nobody's going to claim that it's good for our rivers here. But the issue is not that black and white.

    "Ignorant" is an adjective that refers to someone or something (often written) that shows a lack of knowledge (ignorance) of a subject. I think your opinions posted on this thread qualify. It does take an extra step to infer ignorance on the part of the writer. The writer may be intentionally stirring up the pot, or being sarcastic, etc., and not really ignorant of the subject. That's certainly not unheard of on this forum. Somehow, I don't think that is the case here.

    If you took a poll of the members of this board you will find that we overwelmingly are against gillnets. Except me of course 'cause I am an old Puget Sound gillnetter. The point of most post in this thread is not support for gillnets and netting rivers but against those that whine about things they have little to no knowledge of and insult those who attempt to point this out. As you do in your post.

    Nevermind, I am likely wasting keyboard time here. See previous post on ignorance.

    i think if you start at the beginning of the thread and watch it develop, you'll notice no one really got after him until he posted this:

    "i'm sorry but the privileges given to the native americans are ridiculous and everyone says "we took there land, that's how they used to do it, etc..." first off they aren't the only group of people that have ever been taken over, we just evolved quicker and won that war. I don't remember christopher columbus pulling up to tulalip casino either. if they want the "special rules" do it the native way. Hand make your nets, build your canoes, tow it there by horse, row out and set/retrieve your nets AND THEN eat/trade your fish NOT sell it for money (while you collect your casino royalties mind you)"

    an unquestionably useless, meaningless, and inflammatory pile of words which makes no real argument for anything except the poster's ignorance of both the issues involved and spelling/grammatical matters. [btw, i never capitalize so don't bother going there, i'm too lazy and i don't care]

    I disagree it is that simple. We humans claim to evolve and learn from our mistakes. If true gillnetting should be an illegal method for anyone to use against our rivers.

    Gillnets are horrible thing to do to our mother earth.
