Very cool Bruce. Did anyone get pictures?

Yes, and they're not even neoprene! :)

Unfortunately, Mister Binkley took a dip *early* in the outing (like a bum on
the bottom, water in the top, you can't do nuthin' about it kind of fall)...
Last week Eric slipped forward. Week before that, Rob was slappin' all around
the creek. I *completely* bit it out on the exposed algaified bedrock last
weekend (and in front of an audience of course), but I think since it seems
I'm due for a submariner excursion, I'll just wait til next May to go out
again. ;)

That's a honkin' hogsucker, and a Northern one at that. We caught several
Alabama hogsuckers in the Little Cahaba south of Birmingham three weeks ago
and they really _did_ have a distinctly orange mouth/sucker area, along with
the ventral fins (as well as a distinctly flat top of the head between the
eyes). And I'm glad Mark B. was in chest waders in the picture, this time of
year it's socially acceptable to use waders(!).
