In support of proposed wild steelhead release regulations?
 
If so, please read on and visit this url:

http://www.piscatorialpursuits.com/candrcomment.htm

It's that time again! Time to harness the power of the web and show a loud voice of support for the proposed regulations to the Washington State sportfishing rules to eliminate any exceptions to the current rule of statewide release of wild steelhead.

We did the form letter a few years ago in the last round of major proposals before the WDFW and nearly 300 were sent off via the form we had available then. Hopefully, we can easily exceed that number this time around. Last time, it was mentioned during the discussion of the issues at the large numbers of email the WDFW had received in response ... let's really open their eyes this time around!

Please note that public testimony or appearance at the meetings on December 7, 8, and 9, or a personal letter will likely carry more weight than a form letter.

However, if you don't plan on doing any of the above, please enter your name and address into the form and it will automatically be sent to the people at the WDFW it needs to get to!

It only takes about 15 seconds to complete the form and you're voicing your support to help maintain angling opportunities and the health of Washington State's wild steelhead runs!

Thank you!

Bob-
I posted the letter up on the Striper board which seems to get alot more traffic then the steelhead board and it seems that many have taken the initiative for fill out the form and send the letter in.

Is there anyway to see how many letters are sent of from differnt states (or even differnt countries)?

Thanks!!

We've got 125+ in the first day right now. I have a copy of every one sent to me also ... makes it easier to keep track of the numbers. I can look through them at the end and see how many states are represented. I'm hoping some guys from BC and the Great Lakes region who fish out in WA (or just care!) will send in the form and / or post in on boards around the country!

Gotta project for you Sparkey!! :D :D :D

My word Bob
 
Can't I get away from you on at least one board?????

J/K. As you can tell from your list, I already signed the letter. Good luck on the signatures!!!!

Hi Bob! Glad to hear from you.

Does it invalidate anything if I send one thru your form when I have already sent one directly (double vote kind of thing)? After the Florida ballot debacle one never knows anymore ;)
