The NANFA website has links to the different state sites which have
information on laws. <A HREF="">nanfa at</A>

A fine equipment list compilation was put together by Chris Scharf and
published in the last issue of the NANFA publication "American Currents." I
believe he got most of it from a discussion on the list earlier this year.
List archives go back to mid 1999 and are located at:

The Maryland area probably has the largest concentration of active,
knowledgeable and experienced NANFA members anywhere in the country.

I want to do some personal collecting this summer,
just for fun, but I'm not really sure how to get
started- where to get the equipment and such, or even
where to go to read regulations. Does Maryland have
strict regulations? I wouldn't be keeping any of the
fish, as I have no tank space available, but I would
like to go out for fun, and also to gain experience so
that maybe a fisheries organization will actually want
to hire me once I graduate. :-)
