I sometimes shudder to think what shape our fisheries would be in today without Barry's dedicated strong willed advocacy and action on behalf of our streams and the trout that live in them.
Been fishing since 1970, started fly fishing by 1980. Knew Barry from the back roads, but his book doesn't have much in it that wasn't written before. Heck, I couldn't give a dang what you opinion is, I know enough from life to not worry about your opinion.
Found the book in my library, and laughed at your post all over again
Its a tough life being outspoken. Even worse when, people hate hearing the truth.
