I doubt that these run ins are out of balance with "Nature", but they are interesting enough to report when one encounters them. When you really think about it what is really out of balance is "probably" folks like me who are catching fish and making them a "bit off " and a little out of breath so that the Seals and Sea Lions can harvest the ones that bite flys!!!!!
So am I guilt ridden? No! Do I worry about my ability to impact the few fish I encounter? No!
Do I begrudge the occasional non human marine predator his take of the multidude of Pacific Salmon? No! Am I a bit obtuse? Yes!
And more importanly I will be out on the morrow doing more of the same.
