Bob Hrabik here with the Missouri Department of Conservation. I am coauthoring a field guide to Nebraska fishes and am planning some field trips to Nebraska in 2007. Good friend and colleague Konrad Schmidt of Minnesota and I have been talking about such a trip for sometime, so I think we are going to do this. No date yet. Anyone who may be interested, please let me know at robert.hrabik@mdc.mo.gov

Also, with the success of the 2006 NANFA Annual Convention we hosted in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, I am thinking that it might be fun to establish a more formalized "chapter" of NANFA....maybe something like NANFA West. We had a few people from the western USA make it to NANFA 2006 in Cape, but very few. I understand there are fewer members west of the Mississippi River and all conventions have been held in the east. While the west and Midwest do not have the diversity of fishes, it still has some outstanding scenery and environments worth exploring.

Anyone out there in the west interested in talking more about this?

“Underlying the beauty of the spectacle
there is meaning and significance. It
is the elusiveness of that meaning that
haunts us, that sends us again and
again into the natural world where
the key to the riddle is hidden.”
