Contest Over...Quest Continues
The roughfish.com specie contest is over for 2008. I considered filling this entry with my whiny excuses, but it comes down to me not making enough time to fish this month.
The fellow that won, Dr. Flathead, had 42 different species in 30 days...wow!
I was feeling pretty pathetic when he wrote this to me, "One species at a time man! It just flat out takes time and patience to catch some fish. I've sat on the end of a fallen tree for hours trying to float hooks into algae sifting buffalo's mouths many times. But its very rewarding once it finally happens....Good luck with your catches." What an encouragement!
I did get five species (actually only four since the bullhead is a sculpin and does not count as a fish, but is a minnow), my goal was ten and I failed in that, but I will not give up. I have decided that I will make the ten species a goal for the summer for me.
That is my challenge...TEN by September 30!
