It sounds like you guys saw some interesting stuff on your trip to the Big
Southfork area. Casper, your side-trip to the Emory River was especially
intriguing. I was hoping to make it down there after the convention, and
was especially hoping to get a look at Turquoise Shiners.

How many Ashy Darters did you guys see on that trip? Also, if I understand
it correctly you didn't spend most of your time within the national
recreation area because it was off-limits to collecting. Is this correct?
Are the waters within the recreation area clearer?

Are any of you guys familiar with the Rockcastle River in Kentucky? I think
I want to check this river out after the convention too. I've heard that
its a strong hold for Ashy Darters and would like to observe some while
