Wow, I'm viewer No.#6, and this is my second time to visit this thread.
Two things are immediately clear:
1. The resource issue is clearly divided between party lines. The Republican party has never been the friend to fly-fishers.
2. Sad but true, fly-fishers are generally not political. A point driven home by Ladyfisher of FAOL.
...and supporting #2 is the wide detour most have taken on this thread. It may set a record for fewest "hits".
