    Not a tough guy at all JM. My name is Shane Stewart and I live in Hillsboro, OR
    I'm pretty dang easy to find.
    You guys are right about hatchery steelhead. They are meant to be killed and I kill every one I catch no matter the condition. If it's not edible, like the one you guys are pouring beer into, then I tag it, open it's body cavity and back into the river it goes to become part of the bio-mass to feed juvenile salmonids.
    The thing that rubbed me and yes a lot of other fly fishermen the wrong way is the way you portray fly fishermen in general.
    We already get a bunch of crap from the bait/gear crowd about various things. Why just add to it by making yourself look stupid?
    Some might disagree that stunts like you and "Steelie" Mike did while it might be silly does not have an effect on the public perception of fly fishing, I disagree.
    As far as internet tough guys go you've got me pegged wrong. I would say the exact same thing to your face.
    Cheers,

    Shane...your totally entitled to your opinion...but your attitude is farther at the cause in the division in our sport than what I can see I did. I have repented about my picture many times, in several places. Arguing about things like this on the internet is stupid, because it all turns in to a gigantic pissing match

    One thing I have learned is a lesson in civility here. Wouldnt it be more appropriate to contact me one on one first, then get the story, before you post it on your blog. You didnt come to me or Mike first, and thus...you are the internet tough guy.

    Your attitude sucks in my opinion, and this horse has been kicked enough

    Really? Where is it brewed? Must be some place other than Seattle. I haven't seen a can or bottle of Rainier in years.
