Default Results of the poll are in!

84.4% of respondents do not believe a ban on felt soled boots will prevent the spread of invasive microorganisms.
This is nearly identical to the results of the same poll I posted on a National Fly Fishing site: 87.8%.

Now for the second step. PLEASE write your State Representatives and Senators asking them to NOT BAN FELT SOLED BOOTS, BUT INSTEAD TO FUND RESEARCH INTO BIOLOGICAL AND CHEMICAL METHODS FOR CONTROLLING INVASIVES. Here is a link to addresses of your Colorado elected officials:

Well, that may be, but it pays to remember that 11,967 are pure lurkers.

Screw scientific research...right? Legislators should just base their decisions on what a bunch of fishermen THINK. If a bunch of people THINK they don't spread invasive species then they must not? Sound logic....screw the FACTS.

Tom, I don't think people want legislators to screw the facts. What we're arguing about is what set of facts you chose to believe.
