A recent letter to the editor from Frank Mullen has added a lot of strength to perceived problems with the Board of Fish. I once fished the Kenai River for kings, but do not presently do so. As I look at the existing conditions, a couple of things come right to the forefront. In the late 1970s, there were about the same number of commercial fishermen as today, there were not as many sport fishermen, and certainly nowhere as many guides. There were the daily gripes about the commercial fishermen taking the kings, but truth be known, it was usually due to fishing techniques.
