    Default so a guide service here posted this pic today

    Dream stream is low (like 30cfs low) and the browns are spawning



    Needless to say people are wanting to lynch the people that posted this picture. ANd supposedly they passed the fish around to be taken with the other people there.

    Dream Stream, probably my least favorite fishing spot in the state...
    The fish are big, but all the big egos show up too!

    Fishing the redds, now that takes some imagination. I wouldn't let that guy in my boat.

    Colorado obviously needs some F&G officers up there. Perhaps the photo needs to be sent to all local and the state offices of waterways enforcement.

    I've made a second post to this thread and so will copy it into this one for those who may not read all posts. I waited until the thread had drawn a lot of response and after reading them I had an afterthought, a little deeper this time.............

    [Quote] Nothing like a picture of this type to trigger the passions of sportsmen is there? Mike makes a good point, that if you can find out whether this photo was distributed by a shop or guiding service we would like to know who they are.

    The more of this type stuff I see the more likely that I will not take pictures of fish that are not in the water. For years I've thought that the advent of both on-line photo posting and the digital cameras was to blame for the fish picture craze. Prior to our modern advances we were relegated to 35 mm or 110 snapshots that needed to be processed into paperbacked photos or slides. During those years I myself took very few pictures of fish.

    Todays fish pictures; I do it, you do it, heck, everybody does it. It's just that some of the people doing this have absolutely no understanding of fish. They only understand that they can take a picture such as this and then with the aid of a 'smartphone' post the picture on-line within minutes, hours, or as soon as they reach home.

    This incident is akin to many other behaviors we learn about in the population every day. Heinous crimes are committed that reflect the worst of humankind all around us in this world. Do we commit them, no. Do we condone them, no. However in many cases we are left only with our own conduct to supervise, we cannot exert our desires for a kinder - gentler world over others.

    In the end, we can be upset, we can refuse to do business with this shop or service, if that is where the actions & the photo emanated from, but......... Can we change them? Can we, you, change the rules. I don't know those answers, what I do know is that I can control my own behavior and be an influence on those people who fish with me. I can be an influence on people who read our threads here by trying to instill the principles and the essence of traditional fly fishing and speak a little about the old ways of practicing this wonderful activity. That may be a rather small thing but if nothing else we here, this membership, can make some small difference. That may be the best we can hope for.
