I thought it might be KWB but I was thinking in terms of fish farms and thought, the Heavens above or God. But, just another day under KWB for many, I suppose.  :) ;D :)

Thank you for the thought, but being a 'nuck fan I would prefer you donate it to the first newbie you see fishing ethically.

I've spent many a days watching guys floss under that bridge... installation of under water troughs would solve the problem of long leaders.

OK I gave one to Chris R yesterday sans the logo so I will say it came from you.

Oh I will have many floats to give away at the cleanup but maybe not Drennans. ;D ;D

There are lots who fish without attempting to floss,snag,or rip at fish in the KWB pool.If you don't believe,ask the Creel survey person stationed on the end of the bridge.She is always aware of who is doing the ripping and intentional snagging of fish.If she see's illegal activity,she will report it.

And if fishermen who know the value of short floating a big gooey piece of chum roe at first light didn't bother fishing this pool,then it would truly be left to the Beeks.
 
Instead of calling the the whole barrel rotten for a few bad apples,why not educate the bad guys you see ripping under the bridge,as there is no doubt some could use it.

(btw,I was watching those same fishermen on the same day from the bridge,and it looked like were fishing ethically.I saw one fin hooked hatchery coho doe,and it was released quickly back to the flow.I didn't see anyone trying to snag of floss fish,nor did I see much ripping going on.Do you figure these guys saw you taking your little iphone video from behind them and decided to behave for you?How do you look when you're standing in the river fishing?)

P.S...Mr Gadsden,I realize that that you are a respected member on this forum and others,so know disrespect intended,but don't you think it's more productive to educate those who need it rather than antagonizing them.Did you inform the fishermen they were taking part in that video.Did you get their permission before posting that to youtube,as I believe people still have rights to privacy,even in a public space.

I was down the river from the bridge with a spey rod right at the top of the run above all the guys. No snaggers down there that I could see!
1 hooked a couple from 7am -1pm! Kinda slow if you ask me, saw maybe six fish hooked and landed in that time!
