    And what little mystery there may have been has been peeled back by sop.

    Like I said, Lucas seemed like a nice enough guy to me. This is a non-issue,

    Pretty unstandard operating procedure here, cpt. cool internet. Lots of picnic tables on the OP, you didn't need to do this to prove your point.

    That's cool you guys' saw Clyde and his cohorts. The only thing that would have beat it is if you ran into Laverne also.

    Sure, maybe the Drake and STS and all those other mags added to the pressure, but it was bound to happen, thats just the way it is. I don't particularly give a shit, I like reading the articles (the Doug Rose column last year comes to mind) and most of them don't point out spots or even specific rivers. Maybe the articles will bring more attention to the tribal fishing problems and wild steelhead retention issues out there.Who knows. Rivers and Wild Steelhead always need friends. Granted, I don't like seeing the Bobber Boyz Fleet roll through a prime lower Hoh run, but I can't do anything about it. It's a public resource, in a state with a shit load of people. That just means you have to walk farther, get up earlier etc.

    Forgot to mention earlier thats a sweet chromer. Real nice job.

    The only people I believe on this site don't post about how much their "tech" catches fish and also those who are getting skunked consistently.

    I could post that I have a foot long dong but it doesn't make it so.
