Kiss n' tell

Here's a link to a blog covering yellowstone park fishing. the editors promise, "A few journalistic notes about fly fishing in Yellowstone National Park, including: observations about the fish & fisherpersons, the myths & lore of park fishing, great water and sucker's glory holes." A first read portends very decent things from this blog. One word of warning: it crashed my browser (firefox) 3 times in a row!

On a similar note, RRDiesel87, some poor, hyperventilating soul over at Flyfisherman, proclaims that the site www.wildtroutstreams.com "will be the demise of trout fishing", because it displays stream maps from Maine to Georgia.

Bigseth jumps in to add, cordially, "If i ever find this guy i will give him the beating of a life time this sucks he is a total azz and this should not be tolerated. i am severly pissed bout the whole deal." Hmmm... it gets interesting! Even more so when administrator Ross Purnell types:
"What can not be tolerated is threats of violence and childish behavior. Bigseth your account has been suspended. email me if you want back on. I need to hear that you are going to act a little more socially."
Wildtroutstream's owner then jumps into fray. A beatdown ensues.
Money quote:
"I'm merely presenting maps from PUBLIC data in a form useful to fishermen. If some are wrong, that's part of the game, which is to encourage exploration. It's a pretty good starting point, but the ending point is being out in the wilderness fishing a stream.
There are no reviews on my site, and no directions to specific access points. There never will be. The goal is to encourage people to get out and explore, broadly. I think that's a good thing."
