Hey BG, I have a question for you about the Darter-Gator. On Saturday I was
out collecting shiners (and darters...) in Borden Creek in the Sipsey
Wilderness in the Bankhead National Forest in 'bama. The darters for the
most part we found in a high-volume, high-speed riffle about knee-deep over
large cobble. Would the Darter-Gator work in this kind of semi-whitewater?
Seeing a picture might answer my questions, I understand. By darter-dancing
we netted four species of darter--Tuskaloosa, Warrior, Mobile Logperch
(including a 15 cm male in breeding colors) and "Muscadine" (there are
probably a bunch of different species now lumped as Muscadine). We also
netted stonerollers, burrhead shiners and silverstripe shiners. (Hey Stott,
we're probably going back in 2 weeks, contact me offline.)

Inquiring minds want to know...
