I will be ording one. This a coup for NANFA. Any chance that he will release some copies of the "Our Native Fish"! I had a copy years and years ago but traded it for a jumping grass pickerel.
Have been looking for another copy for the last six months unsuccessfully. Thought I found one on the internet on Amazon but when I placed the order it wouldn't accept my card. The only time that's ever happened. It accepted before and after. It was selling at list price next to copies 5X more. Something smells...a,er.. Fishy?

> of migrating gray whales. John Quinns enthusiasm, spirited stories, and

> beauty and mystery of fishwatching. The book is illustrated with over 100

> diving, underwater photography, and making your own "waterscope";
