As you will see in our Letters column, we were recently contacted by a reader-Mr. David Hanna, of Rapid City, South Dakota-who wanted to know why FR&R takes a "liberally biased stance on coldwater conservation issues." I replied to Mr. Hanna's e-mail, he answered back, and we had quite a little correspondence
I grew up as a deprived youngster-although I was scarcely aware of it at the time, and it left no permanent scars. By deprived I mean that my fishing life consisted entirely of catching brook trout on worms, dunking crayfish for smallmouth bass and twirling minnows in the tidal current for snapper blues.
Could it be that fishing the Great Lakes tributaries is more rewarding than, say, New Zealand or Tierra del Fuego?
