NFC: DP reply from non-fish friend - a little vulgar
I usually usually go to Tucson, Arizona once or twice a year and stay with
friends. He is a helicopter pilot (AH-64 Apache) and sees a lot of stuff from
the air. A couple of years ago he took some GPS coordinates of some
petroglyphs he flies over for us to hike out to.
In my travels out there, I've only seen a few year round flowing water areas,
one of which is downstream from a sewage treatment plant and has no evidence
of life. One site north of Tombstone they refer to as a river would be a
minor stream here in Indiana. Figuring he also flies over other flowing
waters, I told him what type of sites I was looking for to possibly do a
little collecting next spring. (I hope to hook up with anyone who lives out
there that might be interested).
Here is his reply:
>Fish collecting? Yeah, the desert Southwest seems a real likely place
>for that. Be careful of the Polar bears around the water. They might
>mistake you for a seal.
>We could try the sewage ponds. That's about the only shallow, year
>round water I can think of. Course, if it's brown and not moving much,
>it probably isn't a fish. Might make a tasty pate' though, and the
>water can be used as a marinade for that rat jerky you wanted to make.
