But bein' this is a Whooshh Innovations salmon cannon, the most powerful fish launcher in the world, you've got to ask yourself a question. Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?!"
     
  6. 20lb dead salmon whizzes by his head during prototyping....."hey guys.....I thought of a possible company name......"
     
  7. So, let me get this straight...lifting a fish out of the water for a picture will kill it, but shooting it through a freaking CANNON is perfectly acceptable.
     
  8. I want to see them shoot fish over Grand Coulee:)
     
  9. How did I not know they were testing this at Roza? Paul Huffman, get in here!! You know I would have LOVED to see this.
     
  10. Finally.

  12. Takes new meeting to "fly" fishing...

    The newest gear will be 30 ft rods with a large net attached to the end and they'll be called "interceptors".

    The idea as showed seems to me like it would work at small dams like Roza but large dams might require more research.

    If it were a water pump that could just suck fish, along with water...maybe it could work to suck fish over GC dam?

    Luke77, maybe we could use shotguns instead of fishing poles...tough to be sure about the adipose though. It could be called shooting "fish on the fly".

  14. OOHHH, and the guides of the future will be former NBA stars that didn't understand what "investment" meant and blew through their money like Darryl Strawberry blew threw a pound of coke.

    Okay, I'm done now...I think....
