Slot limits, size limits and creel limits are common everywhere and pretty much accepted, freshwater and saltwater and for hunters. But, don't tell people they have to use flies, can't use bait, can't use spinners or release everything they catch. That becomes a battle that can't be won.

I think you hit the nail on the head.
