If you are going to write a letter and haven't written one before, I suggest you use the Steelhead Society letter writing guide. Even if you're a pro, I think you could find something of value in this guide!

Thanks Scott -

Great stuff, I will print that out. Frankly for the moment that's a bit more involved than I will have time to muster, but in the future I will try to follow the good advice.

Here's the bottom line:

We treasure the resource and spend a lot of money to experience it. Much more than the chum fishery puts into the Canadian economy.

Spending detail:

airfare:
car rental:
lodging:
meals:
licenses:
tackle:
etc:

A challenge

I issue a challenge to all of the forum members. Give reasons to justify why the average human being, who doesn't fish, should give a crap about Thompson STeelhead, or any race of Steelhead for that matter, WITHOUT USING ECONOMICS.

Juro,

I think the politicians - particularly the Federal (DFO) - are the ones to put pressure on - as they control the chum fishery. Send it to the Minister - Geoff Regan, but copy it to Michelle Imbeau.

The Provincial (WLAP) politicians are susceptable - we saw it with how the Thompson closure was postponed then never happened this past fall. The local politicians got all over the Provincial Fisheries office and voila - no closure.

The October 1, 2004 closure is in fact a reaction to the major complaint of Spence's Bridge - that is it gives plenty of warning to avoid the booking of reservations for the prime November dates. Getting after the Province - the MInister of WLAP - Bill Barisoff and the Premier - Gordon Campbell is a good way to go.

Scott K has an interesting idea, we as fishermen have little trouble getting worked up over protecting our favourite fish and rivers - we have a clear vested interest. To really put the political heat on we need to pique the interest and ire of the general public. If we can get them to care - we will have all the clout we need.

Kush,
I think they do care. The non fisher population just need the right banner to wave.

We need to get them to care enough to do something! What flag do we show them?

Fresh water ecology. Please don't take this the wrong way but, we say steelhead and they think fishing. We say protect "fresh water ecology" and hopefully they think - enviroment. As do we. Also the idea offers an expanded horizon. . .Broadband approach

Hey Scott-
Per a certain number of Steelhead Society Directors' suggestions, it is your duty to show up at the Kaufmanns' Spey Days to promote the Steelhead Society.

When is Kaufmanns spey days? - whoops, just read the thread, this coming weekend.

Unfortunately this is a too late of notice for me. I already have a few things on the go for this weekend - including Steelhead Society administration type work, as well as a few articles I am currently working on. I appreciate your offer and extend a hand of thanks to you in thinking about us though.

I will see if I can rearrange some things, but otherwise, thank you very much for the offer.

Scott K

Sorry to hear you can't make it.

But from what I understand, it is your duty to be sure that the attendees of the Spey Days are educated about the Steelhead Society of BC so be sure there are brochures and what not there to be passed out.
