Has anyone read Pete Dube's book _Stolen Treasure_? Suffice it to say, he's not all that hot for the Atlantic Salmon Federation.
I haven't read the book, but I've had dinner with Peter a couple of times. During a relatively private conversation he'll tell you things he's not likely to even put in a book. He truly has no use for the organization and he does bring up some very interesting and seemingly valid reasons. I just feel we're far better off with the ASF than we'd ever be without them.
