Time for reconsideration

From the P.C. 5-23-14, Outdoor View, “ To ensure healthy salmon runs and to provide a quality fishing experience, fishing pressure must be reduced on Cook Inlet and the Kenai River. All use must be reduced and limited, with commercial use first.” Les once again has shown his true colors and pretzel logic. From the constitution, in times of shortage the non-resident will be  restricted first. For the record, the commercial fishermen were the first and remain the only user group that is limited. Just for clarification, the guides remain unlimited along with the in-river fishermen and the Deep Creek Marine fishermen (charter and otherwise) , winter king fishermen, and the fastest expanding group in a fully allocated fishery; the personal use dip net fishery. With concepts such as carrying capacities, genetic natural selection, hook and release mortality, shrinking spawning habitats, derbies on declining stocks, sure it is time for some reconsiderations. How about a slice of honesty in that reality sandwich?
