The Northwest Sportsfishing Industry Association did have a full-time lobbyist until McBrayer quit to take up the commission seat. I think that they've replaced him, but I couldn't say for sure. The agenda of that organization is one you could stand behind, OC. So could just about anyone on this board except the commercial-fishing supporters.
While we see the gains we've made as huge, they are nothing-- and I mean this with no disrespect at all-- nothing, nothing compared to the huge jumps made in the Gulf Coast states with the work of the Coastal Conservation Association. We sportsmen could do worse than model our efforts after those of the CCA.
