    It has been a slow and pitiful death.

    How do you place a tourniquet on it? I'd invite some of the old crew back if I thought they would accept. I like keeping up with them on facebook, but his place has an advantage. While both sites can used in a similar manner. My friends on FB (some are here too), use FB for quick status updates and a few replies to comments. Here their behavior is different and sometimes longer, in-depth discussions take place. I like the fuller discussions even if I just read and do not comment. I just learn more that way.

    I frequent 4 boards and they have quite a bit of traffic. This place has had a lot of members that were just plain run off. That other place which we can not name is quite active?

    Maybe we need to find our common ground instead of proving the other side wrong in infinity

    These arguments are like a dog chasing his tail----I find a link---you find a link----**** rules

    One thing brought us all here...fishin ---(and huntin for my young bro Buffy)

    The other day I posted a rock n roll thread with meaning--something different---some participated---some who don't always---it was nice

    We have to afford us the pleasant times too---life is hard---we still need an escape---even here

    One question---are you at the Lodge to argue?---maybe discuss---but I've seen in my short time considerable bitterness and one upsmanship

    What do you gain?--What makes actual change in the world?----not policy but maybe hurt feelings of a real person

    Should everyone agree---no way---how can we grow like that

    But maybe the lodge should take a collective laugh once in a while----kinda a pressure relief

    Ya know---like when I chain Buff to a chair and show him all my huntin Pics:p

    We need Heero and Fly Fisher 5
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    And its killing the once wild places we love to visit and or fish. Where a forum reaches a few hundred like minded readers. Instagram, Facebook, and youtube (everybody mounts a gopro to their head now) reaches millions. Enjoy those places while you can, because they are aren't going to remain secret for long.

    If the agenda that you voted for continues, the secret spots will be sold off and nobody will have access to them.

    Fish harder. Millennials are soft and weak. Get too far from a Starbucks, and they won't come.

    On a serious note, you have this exactly backwards: exposure is the only hope you have to save those places. Environmentalism in the abstract is fine, but won't motivate most people.

    I see your point but I can't tell you how many great destinations that I've seen get "loved to death" because of overexposure.
