    Hey Guys,
    the POS in question is Todd Hallingstad:
    http://naturesdrift.com/


    Killing native fish in the upper Hoh is illegal and unethical and should not be supported by the angling community, nor allowed by WDFW. His license should be revoked and all property used in committing the crime seized. Flame away and pass the word.

    well Keith, now your post has validity :) You called it!.......

    Rob, how do you know this? I just went through the guides web site there is no evidence in the photo gallery of killing wild fish or the mishandling of wild fish, on the contrary the pictures seem to suggest he is very careful about handling wild fish. There are a few "gill shots" with some hatcheries but they are there to harvest. Just wondering where you are getting your information.

    Regards-

    Nate Dutton

    nomdeTrout- check the regs...the Hoh above 101 is closed to retention and that is where the infraction occured.

    Anyone come across more facts on this situation yet? Copies of citations issued, if any? Court dates? Hearings held? Now that some pretty personal information has been posted here some lines in social media circles have been crossed IMHO. TomB I think your passionate strong suport for wild steelhead has clouded your sense of judgement. Posting that amount of someones personal information is excessive and you should edit that post leaving more appropriate information. Do you want everyone knowing your address when they may disagree with one of your alleged actions or practices? Two wrongs clearly is not right. You could have stopped at a simple link to the site. Those that care to look further could.

    Looks like nobody will get sued, and this guy show's his true colors in more ways than one. I know I won't be hiring him. I just wish that when we moan about the nets that it would generate a response as quickly.

    iagree Any way you look at it the nets just do not make sense.

    Here is a pic from this last weekend on the Hoh. Looks like the net got swept up in some debris coming down the river. There are dead fish throughout the net. Just can't tell what kind they are because they are too far gone.

    Makes me crazy to not touch one fish in five days, yet they are taking them out by the hundreds.

    Think of the nets stranded in places unreachable. Death will become all birds and fish in the way. As for the guy with a dead Native, In my opinion he has learned a lesson. I hope people from this site forget about it and move on. If not let me get some more popcorn.

    You are a guide/wana be guide. It is your responsibility to know the rules/regs when you take clients out with you. The little tempertantrum just shows your level of maturity...
    You should be banned from guiding IMHO

    ps-[​IMG]
    Might not be smart to have a pic of the regs on your site too..... just saying.... kinda hard to use it as an excuse when you obviously read it............ kinda......
