<font color="80,00,00"><font size="3"><b>Our brothers in the pacific northwest need our help.</font><!--3--></b></font><!--color-->

This <!--http--><a href=" =227" target="_blank">URGENT PLEA</a><!--url--> comes to us from the officers of the recently formed Wild Steelhead Coalition, an organization that has pulled together to put their money where their mouth is and take action to protect the remaining wild steelhead populations in Washington State and the pacific northwest. Many of it's members are Flyfishing Forum members, contributors, and friends.

Wildlife Commissioner Pete Van Gytenbeek, a very important proponent of C&R policies for wild steelhead, is a candidate for appointment in the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). If appointed he would be instrumental in representing the C&R cause and others like it with the interest of wild steelhead in mind. If he is not appointed, there is little hope that C&R regulations for wild steelhead will be represented within the WDFW, and the current wild steelhead kill quotas will continue despite their threatened existence.

Please do your share by voicing your support for Pete's appointment to the WDFW. Like Lee Wulff said, a wild fish is to precious to be caught only once.

Let's make a difference!

As posted in the steelhead board, Pete was voted into the WDFW. Thank you to all who did their part.
