Having your sole step into dog doo isn't great, either.

Interesting stuff. I spend most of my summer trying to find the rare streams around here that they don't stock full of brown trout. Native brookies are getting hard to find here in Wisconsin because of the number of brown trout stocked. Problem with the brown trout is as soon as they grow big enough the first thing they do is eat all the brook trout. I have about 3 streams now that still have native populations of brook trout in them and no browns.
I would like any unusual pflueger casting reels!

Then there's the introduction of Europeans to the western hemisphere and continual restocking...
