Just for the record, I never doubted that you were collecting
responsibly, Daryl, or that Robert would endorse such collecting for
the mere sake of a buck. It doesn't seem likely that any NFC
member would try to profit from the destruction of our fishes. But
here's a big question: Suppose a Non-NFC member wanted to do
the same thing. Say it was an individual or even a corporation.
THEN how would everybody feel about endorsing them?
