    Wow you are impotent.
    They can use anything against you and will. The neo enviromentals will start attacking anything to make it seem wrong.

    Good work. And at least it sounds like they got the right words. Usually they will make up what you said or take it out of context.

    Impotent, means a legend in my own mind They didn't use the whole quote, and he grabbed it off of Crazy Bob Ferris's website. I was shocked to see plastered on facebook. Desperate times.

    The author is an elitist fly fisherman, and like all the other
    elitists out there they feel it is there RIGHT and OBLIGATION
    to take away the freedom and rights of others when the
    freedom and rights of others might impact their perfect,
    elitist world.

    were our countrymen." ~~ Samuel Adams, 1776

    "so it makes them look like the public, and not miners".....I guess we are not the public anymore.

    What a load of crap. "ripping out hundreds of square meters of stream bed."



    what's harder on the fish than catching, killing, and eating them??

    When I go into the "paper's" artical, the whole artical is 'grayed out'. In other words, nothing to read. But, I'm not a member (and never will be) of facebook. So, that might have something to do with it.

    When I clicked on 'read comments', my machine locked up, and the only way I could get out of the site was to reboot. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Pity, I haven't even read the artical, or what you posted, but I felt the urge to reply also. (lol)

    this is all thats there and im not going into fb
    Suction dredging for gold is basically a recreational activity. Required equipment: gasoline-powered dredge, sluice box, wetsuit and scuba gear. With a 4-inch-diameter hose you vacuum up what’s on the bottom of rivers — stuff like gravel, woody debris, plants, mussels, snails, insect larvae, crayfish, frogs, salamanders, fish eggs, fish fry and, occasionally, gold....

    WOW!! I guess the dude would really freak out if someone told him that there were also some 6" and 8" dredges out there also. I won't mention a couple of larger ones I've seen.

    Yeah, I saw that part, but not the 'artical'. And, it wouldn't allow me to read the comments section. No problem, I have no desire to enter the institute and listen to the patients rant and rave!! (Especially Napoleon.) (lol)

    Bob Ferris is spewing his ignorance on that article. Had to ask where are the findings or studies on the effects of 5 years of the ban. He called it destructive, so I asked him to show me the permanent signs of the destruction of a 4,5,6 or 8" dredge. I can walk a river and show him the destruction of a fisherman. Eagle, as you scroll down the article asks a couple questions to answer before you can read the rest.

    Thank you my Friend!! Normally I don't answer anything in sites of that nature. Mainly due to the fact that at the very least, you're inviting a "flood" of >SPAM<. But, in this case, I followed your explanation, then read the artical. Very little true substance to it.

    There is a homily that applies here; "Never argue with an idiot, he'll just drag you down to his level, and then beat you with experience".

    We take the lead sinkers out, he keeps putting 'em back in...
    How is he keeping the environment cleaner than us?

    We don't kill fish.
    He kills every fish he can get. (and dreams of killing many many more)
    Mr. Fishkiller is a hypocrite

    He also doesnt know **** about what a hobby is and what it isnt.
    Did Fishing put Colorado on the map? NOPE. It was GOLD. (and silver lol)

    He is the same type of person who doesnt want a pan to touch a creek, but would gladly reform the rivers and streams to the liking of man, what was once a bubbling brook in the city is now a slow moving mosquito infested poop slick water bike path trail. (yay!)

    I'm sick of people trying to take over my life and tell me what I do and do not have the freedom to do.
    This is still America people. Live free or die.

    Here is mr hypocrite zooming down every river there ever was in a gas powered boat, killing god knows how many fish.
