Martin :

If memory serves me right...The two types of darters were sand and black
sided darters, The Notropis were ( what we called ) red finned and steel
blue Notropis. What the actual scientific names were I am not sure but
if pushed I could hazard a guess. OBTW in a couple of smaller streams
before we get to the one where we found the spatterdock we were able
to catch (in very limited numbers) P. welaka which in "those" days we
called blue nosed Notropis.

Actually upon further reflection this was about 43 0r 44 years ago, But
the quest for the Holy Grail......we will
find it again. I will let you know of our results in 3 or 4 weeks.



When I was in high school I caught water moccasins and sold them to a
snake farm in LaPlace,La. I financed many a date on the proceeds and
had a heck of a lot of fun doing so. Classic invulnerability
syndrome AKA dumb youth syndrome.
