  1. An Inconvenient Possibility;

    The title represents my thought process as I begin to write today, unlike Vice President Albert Gore's film titled An Inconvenient Truth I won't go so far to say this is a truth, more it is my studied opinion regarding salmon in Alaska. While there are 5 species of Pacific Salmon that return to the rivers where I live I am at this time moved to air my thoughts based on the worsening situation that our rivers are facing with regard to the King Salmon. In this part of South Central Sockeye and Silver ...

  2. Small Streams as The Labortory;

    I'm one of those people who thinks they have learned things worth sharing and have been working albeit not enough on writing a long version of what I think I've learned for years. I actually believe that one day I'll print the entire work along with supporting images in a book form.

    After ten years of service my boat has more than dents in the bottom, the interior finish has with age and wear become so worn that it became a minor embarrassment. I wanted to get to it last year but for various reasons did not. This spring I made my mind up that I would once again have a boat that people made comments on. I started by cleaning the exterior hull with Zep-A-Lume oxidizer then did the interior. Next came the heat gun and peeling off all those tackle stickers including my Hardy Fly ...

  5. The Industry Ethics Opinion Thread, the long reply version;

    I often copy lengthy post replies and put them here in an edited version so they don't become lost in forgotten threads. If you didn't run across this one on the forum here it is with additional content to be found below the salmon picture. A guy ask a question and things just went long from there.......
