I have to agree. I had hoped to add more species to my "life list" when we
were down there this spring, but only added the coppercheek, which was no
small addition (and I would advise you to go snorkel the Duck at the dam in
Shelbyville before it gets too cold if you not been there already). We
spent a little time in the Collins, but didn't run across any bloodfin.
Most of the tribs were trashed. We'd see very localized sweet spots where a
spring flowed into the stream, but cows had pretty much compromised the rest
of the tribs we were looking at.

I think next year I need to just do a summer snorkel trip along the Blue
Ridge and pick up photos of each of the others. They're just sexy, tough
lookin' little fish ;)
