    The Klickitat reports from new guys/city folks/mother******* that can't be bothered to read the regulations are always the same:

    1. Hire guide for a stack of bills

    2. Fish beads all day

    3. Bro pics holding native fish out of water

    4. Post on Waff about said killer trip

    Thanks for the report bro, I had no idea Summer fish would bite in the rain, and thanks to Evening Hatch for getting you on those fish, bummer about them not telling you it was illegal to hold them waist high out of the water for photos:)

    I don't see any adipose fins on either of those fish, even with the pic enlarged. Gettin' so a guy can't share any picks on this board without the holier than thou-bunch jumpin' in with both feet.

    He removed the photo with the wild steelhead out of water and edited the text to remove the name of the outfitter.

    That's how things roll on the Klick nowadays. There's some good eggs for sure, but the standard there has lowered quite a bit.

    Just wanted to clear the air a little bit. While I don't understand the level of animosity towards guided trips (I've been on all three sides as a guide, client and obviously unguided fisherman), I do understand the animosity towards me. It was a stupid but good faith mistake and I should've known better. I have immense respect for wild fish, and take great care of them.

    Also worth pointing out that I landed and held the fish on my own. I clearly broke Washington's rule but the guide did not. In fact, he was not involved whatsoever, and I have no doubt he would have instructed me otherwise if he were.

    Accountability is great. But calling me a mother****** is not. Grow up.

    We actually in general have a high respect for the guides that hold the resource in high regard. Plenty of those around, many who post on here. There IS some animosity toward guided trips that involve nothing but bead fishing in fisheries that are being overrun with excessive pressure, and there is animosity toward guides who aren't playing by the rules, which appeared to be the case in the post. Good on you for coming back to clear the air, though. Not many would do that with a level head.

    You talk about accountability and yet you have to conjur up lies so that a shop cant be accountable for its actions.... Our rules in Washington should have been clear before you got on the boat. or at least while you guys were hooked up to your first fish..... You stated (in your thread that you completely deleted so we cannot reference......) that you were fishing beads exclusively.... I find it hard to believe that you were not only out of the boat and away from the guide, but around the corner???? give us a break......

    Blake you seem to have a lot of time on your hands to police this forum. Maybe you should channel all your energy into becoming a game warden instead.

    I am with jmara on this one.

    Get off your high horse for a second Blakey and chill the hell out. The guy apologized.

    And to Dockboy : I didn't actually get to see your post before you deleted it, but don't worry about these Donkeys on this forum.

    Keep on Truckin!!!
