Conflicts, interweb tough guys, and my bad taste

Hello interweb followers

I have a confession to make. I posted a controversial picture. It set off an interwebs shit storm.

Dont worry about the back story, just read the comments here

Its just amazing the voracity that people come at you without getting to know you first. I especially love the posts from the "Anonymous" guy....way to man up there!

Thank you internet tough guys...

I have learned my lesson. I understand that by posting the picture, it gives people the opportunity to mislabel, to judge, to make me into who I am not. For that, I am sorry to have given them that opportunity

In respect to the fish in the picture, I understand why people were offended. In truth, I ran out of plastic bags that I usually put it in. That fish was quickly dispatched, gutted and layed out on the river rocks to await transport. It was immediately smoked and is now being enjoyed by my family and my clients

The old guard vs the new guard, the tweed vs's all a bullshit dividing line that shouldnt be there. Steelhead face a complex future and we all know that. I just want to be part of the solution and again....if my picture took away from the betterment of the bad

I struggle to adequately express my angst here about the offending parties. Most tell me to let it blow over, and the people that KNOW me and Steelie Mike for that matter, all agree these guys are completely misguided.

But now I know.....don't slip up, because the internets is going to get you.
