    Given the turn of events in this thread, just pointing out that there is nothing serious about this post.


    ...everyone knows I'm too weak to pick up a rock. forget throwing it.

    The funny/ironic thing is that his Signature was, "Saving Stilly Nates." :rofl:

    Of course this is only after I have swung a fly thru the run to verify that there is no steelhead inhabitating the hole, And he's been disinfected!! ONLY THEN CAN BENNY SWIM !!!

    There in lies the rub really. Great point Panhandle. Imagine someone coming to your door, but instead of ringing the doorbell to get your attention they lob in a M-80 into your front room.

    Throwing rocks might be affective.....bad idea. I think they get enough stress already.

    While the premise of the original question was nothing but wrong and I don't think is funny, there are actually a lot of funny posts in this thread. I almost feel guilty for laughing as I read it. I am not sure if I should be :beathead: or :rofl:. I am so confused?! :confused:

    Knowing Dustin, I know his original question was sincere; just not well thought out. He had watched Jim Teeny's video and was legitimately curious about the tactic. I think given the response on the thread, he got his answer. I don't think the "ethics" of doing such a thing are quite as obvious as it might seem to everyone; especially since running sleds over them, or even catching+releasing them is considered acceptable.

    Come on now I was only joking. Really, I would not run my sled over any fish in the river. Never. Matter of fact I only use the sled when I know there are no fish what so ever in the river. This part is getting easier all the time with the runs on the decline. Soon, I won't need to worry about it at all. Can't wait.
