And my not-quite 4-yr-old granddaughter, who was staying with us for a couple
of days, couldn't wait for me to get home from work Monday and went out
fish-collecting on her own. (Well, she did have supervision, but not help.)
She only caught about 20 gambusia and Heter, but sometimes that's all I catch
in the same location, using bigger/better gear.

So my insidious guerilla program of indoctrination & training is paying off

And here's a thought:
In 20 years or so, she'll be posting on our list, saying "yes yes yes,
Traci Mount and all the REST of you middle-aged and older people SEEM okay
,,,, but aren't there are YOUNG people interested in this kind of thing ????"
