    Be more tolerant to poachers??? Rules for this State shouldn't be followed just because your born in a different country?????:rolleyes:

    Maybe those 4 snagged silvers may equate to 100 future silvers.:beathead:

    It is good to hear once and a great while that citations are being given! Regardless of ethnicity, white collar or blue, gear or fly, there is no excuse...ok maybe a few.

    No shit. iagree Duffer

    PS I've noticed that people who pull out the racism card usually don't even really know what the hell it really means. It's a wholier than thou attempt to declare some sort of phony moral superiority and this just reafirms what I've seen the last 10 times or so I've seen it directed at someone. We all have prejudices, if small and eccentric or in your face and out in the open. Team that up with inherent issues of zenophobia (which some say is part of the human condition), and you have one of the great challenges in life. All good people constantly work on and repel intrusive thoughts of prejudice and zenophobia, some less than others but I think we all find them sneaking into our heads at times. The issues aren't the hurdles we have to cross it's how hard we work at getting over the damn things without having to be judged by people who really don't know what the hell they're talking about. Gary, it's refreshing to hear a man's real voice, not the PC phony bullshit kind of voice we are all subjected to all over the place nowadays. Nice work Griz! Tight lines Coach

    Glad the snaggers were snagged. NFR or SFR or something entirely unrelated to holiness or xenophobia. Someone's been drinking... Oh yeah, that was me! :beer1:ptyd:D
    Cheers!

    coach hit it square per usual, with the added bonus of a new! improved! phonetic spelling of the term "xenophobia"...:thumb: love the Coach. You de man

    any excuse to be a hater will do, any minor difference can trigger the us/them aspect of the human personality. Look at the black-on-black atrocities in Africa between neighboring tribes or the way our PNW tribes treat each other, every tribe badmouthing the rest. That is pure DUMMITY (new word, add to dictionary) but that's humanity for you, including us. I've been known to refer to gear fishermen as "chuckers" and complain about them...I'm guilty as everyone else is in their own way.

    There's good reasons to dislike snaggers and cheer for enforcement. It's a real crime, real dumb, and hurts other people and the environment, particularly the future of the environment. Whatever accent or ethnicity the snagger has, they should ALL be led from the river in handcuffs and we should burn their gear on the riverbank and dance around it. (then clean up after ourselves).
    Most would agree, and know from experience, that the worst offenders of all in disregarding regs are the local people who live nearby, particularly those who own riverbank property. That's been my experience anyway. That's why we need to be out there with cellphones and cameras;

    So true. I get a bad taste in my mouth talking to the locals on the Nooksack during winter steelhead season where I usually hear comments like this, "I caught a 22 pound, 3 and a 1/4 ounce native last week! It was a fighter!".

    Yes, Muslin is very dangerous, especially due to its high flammability (being made of cotton and all). I didn't realize it was enjoying a revival in modern-day Detroit. I thought its popularity died out in the early to mid 1800's.

    I wasn't singling out Russians in particular. It could just as well been "unhappy American/Englishman/Frenchman/Martian". I've seen good and bad in every race/nationality/ethnic group. I was just glad to see the S.O.Bs. sitting in their van, looking mighty unhappy.:thumb:

    I can state with relative authority there is NO revival of any kind going on in modern-day Detroit, especially my beloved Tigers.:beathead:
