    Here is a great video from You tube on steelhead fishing in BC. Love the blistering run that steel makes.

    Man now I have spent the last 40 mintues watching all sorts of videos! Did you see the one on flyfishing for steelhead in Argentina? It looks like HUGE water.

    I hate to make my first post about this but that was absolutely appalling. These are wild fish!!! If people beat the crap out of them they won't live long enough to spawn. There is no need for this crap.:mad:

    Sorry I kinda get worked up about these things.

    That looks an awful lot like the Fraser River up in the canyon between Hope and Cache Creek.

    These guys should have their license pulled by a mountie and forced to write every word of the BC synopsis (reg book)

    Thats disgusting. Maybe they should require a fish handling class prior to obtaining a license! Notice in the second vid that the jerks have their truck parked right on the riverbank. It's Not surprising these guys dont make any attempt at a clean release of that beautiful spawner.

    Oopps in the editing process my post lost the part about the poor fish handling. I did like the music and the native american art.

    LOWER BRAIN SPEAKING: I'd like to get that redneck alone in a locked room for 5 minutes and show him how funny I think his attempt at humor is.

    FRONTAL LOBE SPEAKING: It's sad that some people just aren't raised right. I guess this kind of stuff makes me especially happy to see all the recent posts from fathers taking out their children and showing them how to be good, descent sportsman, and human beings.
