I'm trying this reply. Still having problems with my posting, but found out from AOL it's an AOL 6.0 thing.

Anyway (assuming this works), any of you guys coming up to meet with Casper want to swing by the Clinch R. tomorrow (Friday)? We're gonna be at Kyles Ford looking for slender chubs (Erimystax cahni). This is an extremely rare, big river chub. Only one specimen has been seen in the past 10 years or so!

I know this is short notice (or none at all if my _at_%#$^% posting still screws up!.

I'd like to also put a bug in ya'lls ear about a big search for this beast later this summer (or early fall). I'd love to be able to get a big crew up there to help us look. This is a fish that's really in trouble. We know how to propagate their close relatives and could probably do them to. But, we need some fish first!

Have a good'un,
