    Default Fishing guide convicted

    A Valley guide was convicted of fishing illegally with clients. http://www.frontiersman.com/news/gui...9bb2963f4.html

    Apparently he was unaware that the little creek he was fishing in, which runs out of the woods and into the Talkeetna, was actually still the same creek. He claimed that once the creek took a left hook into a larger, mainly dry creek bed, that it was now Clear Creek. yeah, the jury didn't buy it, either.

    Once upon a time, it actually did flow into Clear Creek first, then into the Talkeetna. But that portion of the Clear Creek channel is very obviously dry. It makes a great path for accessing the upriver portion of Clear Creek. The only water in there now is Fish Creek.

    Ignorance of the law is not a valid defense. Guides have a professional duty to know where they are and what the rules are.

    Got the same warning from my office computer. I just closed the tab... hopefully without incident. Always freaks me out to see stuff like that... esp when it comes to my business.

    Isn't that sort akin to turning off the viewer when the doc starts to point at something insidious on your x-ray?
