  1. Fine man, that Tom. You’ve got to save the steelhead and those lovely lovely rivers, fellas. I’m sitting here on the British side of the Atlantic, yet have known about them, and have dreamt about them, but never fished them, since my totally fish- and fishing-struck early childhood. Shame to let them go in fit of your team’s – our term’s turn, nothing in this for us, short-term politics, or just in some tiresomely common now, modern absence of “Nobody really cares about such stuff these days…besides, they’re a long way from anywhere…in fact you can see nowhere itself from the banks oif many of them …..” mind.

    Go on, do it for me, if nobody else!

    Boote out.
