We'll I can see where some may get off calling out Courtney but everyone makes mistakes and he has paid dearly for his. However this hurdle that he was dragged into did not slow down his generosity. This past weekend I got a message on my local forum from a member saying he had just hand delivered a new set of waders and 2 pair of boots to another member free of charge. Courtney took it upon himself to donate these to another member of said forum as he is only 18 and undergoing a major treatment of cancer, fishing being part of his treatment. I didn't see Courtney taking any credit or publicity for this act, just pure good karma and these are the things that most do not see. For some, he is a lifechanger, others, a poacher. I agree, we all need to concentrate on the big picture of farming salmon in pens and commercial fishing bycatch. Not to take away from his wrong doing but he did own it, many wouldn't. Illegal guiding is not the same as poaching, what was done was still catch and release fishing not like some illegal fishing.
