Hi Fish Tales,
I'm glad to see that the PFBC continues to recognize the value of wild trout. Keep up the good work and don't worry about the naysayers. Education takes a long time, but the portion of the trout angling public that understands the value of wild trout has increased exponentially since the introduction of Operation Future many years ago. I believe even more anglers will value wild trout in the future, as well as practice catch and release.
I think it is particularly interesting to compare some of the best wild trout streams in PA to those famous ones in other states, particularly out west. This sure sends a strong message, both in the value of what we have here as well as how lucky we are to have it.
