I was not aware of that, and have been to one of your auctions. That is a
great rememberance. I believe this is a testament to the judges being fair,
since native fish are often held in low regard. I suspect part of this is
from the back of the mind knowing with a little gas money and luck most
people could go catch one themselves.That's too bad, since it diminshes the
effort that goes into raising and caring for the fish properly, which starts
from day one of capture, or the entire life starting with that first F1.
