lets make a top 10 list...
advertise it in an upcoming ac. ( along with reasons for each specie
collected from this and future list chatter )
each nanfa member gets 3 votes. mail in a postcard ( cut from a ac page? )
to cast your vote.
we pass the results to dave mc for and to the powers that be.
end result is nanfa gets credit and publicity... and who better!
gotta be freshwater tho in my opinion and needs to range across most of the
states and has to be unique to north america.
lots of cool species suggested already.
rainbow darter
pumpkin seed
alligator gar
small mouth bass
hog sucker
paddle fish
hard to pick just one...
thus on the vote card we let you pick 3.... then the one with the total most
votes gets the final nod.
that works.
i bet at least 50% of the members voting would have picked the winner when
picking 3 from the 10. that way most of us are happy and content and pleased w/
 the final results.
and dont let this get to the sportfisherman... and really they generally
only appreciate a very narrow band of the emmense diversity in our noth american
waters. we are the folks of native fish diversity.
