I wanted to take a minute to thank you for all your past support of the CCA and my annual fundraiser. Jeff with your donations of fishing trips over the last 7 years I wanted to let you know we have been able to raise about $4500 dollars. I think you should know that your money raised has been used to fight political terrorism by certain factions of our legislature and State Senate to do away with the fish and wildlife commission twice. Jeff these tactics were brought up because the CCA had gotten them to manage our fisheries thru economic value and conservation of our wild stocks that need protection, while promoting hatchery stocks to fish for. Jeff the CCA has been instrumental in fighting commercial fishing along with the Wild fish conservancy’s radical views of not having hatchery stocks to supplement our wild stocks, not that some of their ideas were all bad, such as the fact the fish and wildlife department were using inferior Steelhead stocks. That I agree with and applaud them for bringing that to the forefront. Jeff whether or not you agree with all of the politics of fisheries management and the CCA I can say without a doubt we would be in worse shape today without the CCA and our lobbyist fighting for Recreational fishing and our fish. Jeff I just wanted to drop you this note to tell you I appreciate all the past support even though you have decided to drop your donation to the Kitsap CCA.
So thanks Jeff a million times over from me,

The trip was most enjoyable at many levels>
It was a vacation for me.
The fishing was everything I could of asked for and the core of the vacation, but was only one of a number of pleasures you and your exceptional crew welcomed me to enjoy.
Please extend my sincere thanks to Annie , Janessa, Ryan, Andy and Nate.
I enjoyed the company of the other anglers as well; interesting folks......
Looking forward to returning next year for a rematch.

All the best, Al Montello
