    You west side guys really know how to rant! I feel sorry for you and your river conditions over there. Too many people.

    Just for laughs, go back and read the posts - ignoring the content. Seriously, haven't laughed that hard in awile. :thumb:
    Members true colors show, good or bad, when a subject like this arises.

    Just remember: It's alllways better to be thought a fool, then to speak and reveal it.

    I gettin to where I'm glad that I moved to Montana. It's just to damn crowded to fish in Washington State. And now everybody wants to change the way everybodys been fishing to their way of thinking.

    I think that in my previos posts I deduced that in the end people were talking about not using boats. But when you get older type people out there trying to fish, a boat is about the only way they can fish. I for one can't wade fish anymore so I usuallly park myself at a boat launch and fish away. But I can do that in Montana as there just ain't that many people here. Well they are here in the summer time. I sure get glad when when fall arives. No more out-of-staters.

    Jim

    P.S. I will now shut my mouth about this shit.

    Man, I don't know about anyone else, but I guarentee you'll find me in my garage zapping a steelhead that's tied to a chair with electrodes hooked up to its nipples until it tells me where it's friends are hiding and what their favorite fly is. :rofl:

    Just your run-of-the-mill conspiracy theorist. Assumes that anyone who doesn't agree with the prevailing point of view must have swallowed the kool-aid. :hmmm:

    I can give some things up but please do not ask me to give up my Ford Truck. You can have my wife (good cook) kids, (early 30's) my two cats, well one but not my Ford Truck.

    Dude?? Thanks for clarifying and setting the record straight.

    Oh, by the way, since there is not a watershed in America whose naturally occuring fisheries stocks have not been adversely affected by us evil, breathing carbon units, you might as well apply your logic to all things with fins. I fish Montana alot and many of the streams have resident Bull Trout, some of which are a listed species -- should we close those watersheds down?

    Now back to the boat question. I checked with Pelosi & the Chosen One and they assured me there is "no ban on fishing from boats embedded in the 1990 page HCR Bill, except aluminum ones, their nosiy and ugly":D
