Wow, crazy, but makes sense if you wanna help the brookies. I'll comply.

Jeez I'd like to get one of those 18" browns out of a little brookie stream, though (and then be forced tokeep her for dinner)

the catch and release ethic is so engrained in most people who fish these streams, I doubt many will comply. Last time I fished the Hughes my most memerable fish was a gorgeous, wild 10 inch Brown caught on a big dry, there is simply no way I could force myself to throw that fish on the bank; quite frankly its against my religion. From a conservation perspective I see where they are coming from, but as a fly fisherman, I much prefer the cunning and elusiveness of browns, not to mention their superiour size.
