    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.

    Ain't bitchin' or playin' tough guy...if that was insinuated by the post, bummer. I'm sharing an article/post as I do on a daily basis in a variety of media with lots o' people. Email, social media, forums, etc. That's my gig...

    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.
