AP Press Release: "PacWest Hatchery Wars Take New Turn as Wild Steelhead Call in the Feds"
OP: Buck Mykiss is a fish of little talking and alot of doing; "Ya know, all I want to do is get by those seals, get a scent-on, and run up the river, shag the wife and see the kids.....but that ain't so easy anymore."
AP Reporter: So what's changed?
Buck MyKiss: Well, a whole lot of nuthin, really.
AP: So is that why you called in the Military?
Buck Mykiss: Well, at some point ya gotta make a stand, ya know what I mean? See....I've got neighbors up the road, and they got on one of those humanitarian reality TV Shows ya know? Yea, so they got a complete remake of their house, a dam got removed, and hey thats all good.
But did you know that my neighbors now can't even poop without being studied by some dude with a beard who got a last name as his first.....and by studied I mean they swing weighted cord with a colored feather on it, which naturally I find to be delicious, we do the tug of war thing, and they take another pic of us and the measurement thing....sure they say it's for science....but why do I did I see my wife and I in some movie and they posted my wifes measurements!! For science? Pervs is what they are...all pervs...
AP: Gotcha...so whats with the Miltiary?
Buck: Like I say, we're kinda on our last stand ya know? There's like 62 of us left up here, 10k of them, and I'm sick of chasing feathers or another movie called research. So yea, I got in touch with a friend of a friend, and we got to thinkin', "hey burned retinas means no more doco's on us,maybe less attention....this is what we need to survive!".
AP: But you do realize the backlash in the angling community right?
Buck: Pure Cutthroat talk. These guys care so much they're loving us to death. Don't get me wrong, gettin' on one of those Dam Reality shows and gettin' a river makeover is good stuff.....but at what cost to my family and kids if my kids are gonna exposed to these cameras and fame against their wishes? Have you seen the Kardashians?
(At this point, Buck had to leave the interview to chase a purple intruder)
