Mel, I always appreciate your points of view and hate to see anyone here give you a hard time.Mel Knox wrote: ↑August 13th, 2019, 10:51 amBrian,
I am not sure what my point is although I don't think Kevin used slave labor up there in Laytonville. I am just ruminating about things.
It seems that if something bad was done in the past and something good came out of it, we are all down with it...Nobody here is in favor of bringing back precious wetlands in the Haut Medoc. Re doing the Central Valley might make ecological sense but we probably can't live without all those fruits and vegetables....not to mention the almonds.
What is it they say about the Old West, Whisky is for drinkin' and water is for fightin' over....
That said, as a fly fisherman it is very hard to put up with those who do anything to destroy the few remaining streams that support steelhead and other forms of wild trout (or even stocked trout).
Some people go ga-ga over rare birds, plants, trees, you name it, and I can not relate.
I may be overstating things, but I happen to believe that most anyone who had the chance to observe trout in their native habitat would agree that it is a precious thing that should not be destroyed for the sake of grapes or commerce (or both).
And on top of that, no jab intended towards Rhys, but this mountain aint no La Tache or Richebourg in the making.
