If the guy had posted a picture of a dead nate bleeding from the gills you guys wouldnt be sitting around defending him. it isnt up to you to choose which laws you want to follow based on your own perception of their merit. But thanks for letting me know where your priorities are. Laws be damned..you guys obviously know better and are above them.
Zen- Son, some day you will have the maturity to refrain from such emetic outbursts. For now, keep in mind the external incentives. After all, such language could result in a trip to the principal's office or a missed recess. We wouldn't want that now would we?
This beautiful buck was handled with the upmost care. It was kept in the water and raised up seconds before the click, which is a lot better handling and care than most of the bank fishers and boaters that drag'em up no matter what they are. Further, I treat the clip's(hatchery) with the same honor and respect as I do a nate, unless I intend to keep it. If I did it any other way, my old man would have my a$$.
"it isnt up to you to choose which laws you want to follow based on your own perception of their merit"
Actually, it is up to us to choose which laws we want to follow. Bureaucrats and legislators in Olympia don’t determine what’s moral or not. That said, if you exceed the speed limit, you better be prepared to pay the ticket.
Once again Tom's got to lay down the lecture. Thank whatever God you pray to that we have him. If not we would never know what was right or wrong. I realise you are in school and still on that long road to the middle, but you need to tone down the BS. The brother just wanted to show us some success and you had to jump up his ass. The fish was still dripping of water and was obviously out of the water for a few seconds. Get a life son.
Looks to me like this young man took all the right steps to insure that this wild fish spreads his genes... I mean no gloves, kneeling in the water..I know that water is cold!!
Nice fish..nice picture...
