    Wildcatters not supporting a Skagit C&R fishery? No suprise there-

    The apple is a nice touch, even if the 'cats didn't bite. :)

    At one time many years ago the wildcatters did have some political clout. Not so much today. Their last big political play that I remember was about 15 years or more ago when they sponsored a bill in the WA state house of reps to ban wading in the Skagit River. Didn't pass. Note I said a bill in the house of reps, not a WDFW regulation. I may not remember all the details of this but I think I am close.

    Jerry's father died while fly fishing in N. California, and he witnessed it. I would imagine that much of that personal pain is well-expressed in the many lyrics that are so reflective of a life (and death) on the river.

    Jerry Garcia's father drowned while fishing for steelhead in the Trinity River.
