SRC? WTF!?!

#61
I normally don’t get wrapped up in these types of discussions but because I have been a long time advocate of the Coastal Cutthroat Trout I am on the same fence with Preston and Les J. and others. As with our wild steelhead these fish deserve more respect than being referred to as SRC, Rezzie, Cuttie when I see or hear these its like finger nails on a chalkboard.
Honestly, even "cuttie" doesn't bug me when spoken, though I hate it when written (I generally believe in more, rather than less, formality in the written word). Similarly, I'd venture a guess that most every cutthroat fisherman that has spent significant time chasing them has said "wow, that's a beautiful cutt" at least a few times over the years. In BC they talk about "cutties". A lot. It's human nature to truncate when speaking. By contrast, SRC just seems completely contrived and silly to me; like Leland said, is anyone really going to refer to fishing for es-ar-see's when talking to a buddy? I don't know, maybe... people do talk about heading to "the OP", (or BC... see above) so who knows. SRC still sounds and feels disrespectful and/or trivializing to me.

SRF, please drop this thread. You use cutts and cutties in your written posts. If you hate it, stop doing it. It is difficult to follow your thoughts from post to post.

Didn't I refer to acronyms earlier? WTF.

Not been here long but it seems a thread is not done until enemies are made and insults exchanged and sides chosen.
I'd hate to get everyone in one room, worse than a class reunion

Same as others I use searun cutthroat out of respect for Les. I could care less how much of the rest of you talk or type for I have yet to aquire the same level of respect for you as I have for Les.

Arrogance goes a long ways. Hey, and it is great to show a good man respect, but why cheapen it with
cheapshots and a ignorant blanket statement?

I doubt anyone here gives a rip what you think of them.

Much like I don't respect your gun-toting, sea lion rant-"they are here on MY earth" bullshit too.
I doubt you cry to mommy about my respect level I offer either..
