Re: Tennessee River fish

Hi Jeff,

	Where bouts you want me to look for on the River? I can correlate with
Peterson's guide to give you a start. Some of the folks on the list may
live fairly close to you!

	BTW: killies and natives are not mutually exclusive, so its not a hard
choice! You could do both, as other members can attest to. But I get
your drift.
	A question for you, if you were offered native killies, or their eggs,
just pay a small shipping cost, would that be an attractive proposition
for you?
	Just a thought. I don't have any myself, and couldn't send them if I
did (eggs maybe), but as Dave responded to my earlier question, seems
like lots of native killies to choose from, and maybe someone can get
some to you to try out.
