“The scariest thing is that nobody seems to be considering the impact on those wild fish of fish farming on the scale that is now being proposed on the coast of Norway or in the open ocean off the United States. Fish farming, even with conventional techniques, changes fish within a few generations from an animal like a wild buffalo or a wildebeest to the equivalent of a domestic cow."
In Delayed Harvest water (stocked) Jacob will out fish me just about every single time. I suppose that it has something to do with his job and my hate for farmed fish. I may even be a little pious about the situation, but I prefer to think of myself as a conservationist.
There's really no way to be both concerned with native trout life and enjoy fishing to stockers.
But, if scouting must be done, in DH water, it sure does make my life a little easier when they throw in some pretty ones.
