Seminole State Report
2213 Prytania Circle
Navarre Fl 32566
Well it seems I jumped the gun on the closing up of the Seminole
State Report. After several letters and phone calls. I realized
that it was not only right but necessary to have a Florida report. So
here's the new adjusted plan Florida needs to be broken up into North
and South regions. So let's figure out a functional cut off line and shoot for spawning a second Florida chapter this next year ! Florida is
such a big state that the folks from say Miami and the Keys would be
very unlikely to ever make it to Tallahassee or Pensacola for a
regional meeting and vice versa so it ends up stifling group
activities. While us North Florida folks often skip over Alabama or Mississippi for a collecting trip. We need someone down south to
step up and get a southern group going. The Miami area has about
10 members which is a nice core group so maybe someone out there
might want to bite on this one (HINT HINT). I vote we make the cut off
just south of Gainesvile (selfish reasons sorry) . Contact me if the
southern region idea interests you! Make your own rules , change the world, have a title that only a few people know what it means...It can
all be yours with a regional representative with NANFA!! Anyhow
what's more important is we have communication and fun in that
order. So drop me those notes on activities in your area, let's get
OK OK OK I give in to the seasoned collecting veterans in my neck of the
woods and have moved the Florida meeting to the first weekend in March
! The fishes should be spawning and beautiful ! The chow will be spicy
and the beaches will be great ! SOOOOOOO....CALL ME AND WE WILL GET
IT ALL SET UP, BRING THE SPOUSE , THE KIDS, THE DOGS TO NANFA `S
1997 NAVARRE TRIP...
I got a pleasant note from NANFA Alum and former everything in NANFA
Dick Stober. He is expecting to make it back to the Mobile Alabama
area in 1998 and can't wait to get back to the waters. He expressed a
great excitement at the growth in NANFA and in the Florida Alabama
area. If you would like to talk to a legend in NANFA drop him a note at
Dick Stober OPM/SANG (NGL-T) UNIT 61304 APO AE 09803 , it will brighten
Your day I assure you.
No report as of yet on the upcoming Fishes of Florida books being
worked on by Gainesvilles Jim William's nor of the separate book by
the Department of Fisheries Gray Bass ! I expect review copies when
available (hint !!). Look for more of my writings in the March
Tropical Fish Hobbyist (The Dollar Sunfish ) , An upcoming American
Fisheries Society magazine, and a series of articles in Freshwater and
Marine Aquarium .
On a Final note we need help in the following areas, articles on
local species and marine species for the national publication.
Breeding information on many species . People willing to copy NANFA applications to local pet stores , nature centers Universities etc. That's it for now see you in the spring.........BTW NANFA Will have a
website up by the end of January at.....................
