    Did anyone happen to see this post from The Classical Angler blog last week titled "The Attitude Problem?"

    I'm am all for the eradication of hatchery steelhead--it's almost imperative for the survival of wild ones--but I must say these photos and ensuing comments show a very unique side of conservation.

    I don't get it. On one hand they want to put hatchery Salmon and Steelhead in the Yakima river and on the other hand every body is against hatcheries. There has to be a middle 0f the road in here someplace.

    Or is it that all want to just bitch about hatcheries. I just wish someone would make up their minds on this issue.

    I think people just like to bitch, and as with everything I blame estrogen-mimickers.

    if you want to talk real attitude problems go back in the archives at the quiet pool and read the piss and moaning tantrum about nymphing versus "traditional swinging".

    I could be totally off the mark here but that appears to be an old picture. It seems to me they stopped making Rainier Beer nearly 20 years ago. That horse has been dead for a long time.

    Not a tough guy at all JM. My name is Shane Stewart and I live in Hillsboro, OR
    I'm pretty dang easy to find.
    You guys are right about hatchery steelhead. They are meant to be killed and I kill every one I catch no matter the condition. If it's not edible, like the one you guys are pouring beer into, then I tag it, open it's body cavity and back into the river it goes to become part of the bio-mass to feed juvenile salmonids.
    The thing that rubbed me and yes a lot of other fly fishermen the wrong way is the way you portray fly fishermen in general.
    We already get a bunch of crap from the bait/gear crowd about various things. Why just add to it by making yourself look stupid?
    Some might disagree that stunts like you and "Steelie" Mike did while it might be silly does not have an effect on the public perception of fly fishing, I disagree.
    As far as internet tough guys go you've got me pegged wrong. I would say the exact same thing to your face.
    Cheers,
