Can anyone help with this fish ID? I think it's a Longnosed Gar. Also, this
group who runs www.highlandssanctuary is interested in having a few NANFA
people come out to do some fish id-ing in their streams. This is a place few
people get to see and the scenery, alone, is worth the trip! Please read below
for further details.

HI Rob,
How are things up north? Attached is a picture of I think a long-nosed gar.
Can you confirm and read the emails below? Can you tell me something about
this fish that I can pass onto Alice and the others?

Also I am weary of being fish ignorant. Are you willing to come down this
summer and give me and some of our volunteers a one or two day introduction to
the fish of the Rocky Fork and maybe the Scioto Brush Creek? I really feel
our ignorance in this arena is unforgiveable. We don't have money, but I can
give you great food and lodging, and if you want to stay 1-2 days longer and
just recreate and hike, that is a possibility too. Let me know what you think.
We would probably have to do this during the week to have our volunteers and
staff free. I want to start incorporating aquatics much heavier in our
education. I am woefully ignorant. Sometimes being a fisherperson in one's
youth is an advantage, one I never had.

Warmly, Nancy
