As much as we fly fishers abhor mosquitoes could this experiment create a monster with unintended consequences, or is it a step in the right direction?

When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

Probably shouldn't mess w/ Mother Nature IMHO. Sure, its nice to not get bit up by swarms of 'em but if the population is severely impacted, no tellin its effect on other levels of the food chain.

Perfectly said, and the thought of humans trying to play the role of God makes me sick...
Most of us fish our whole lives..not knowing its not the fish that we are after.
