</A> Have any of you guys in Texas seen this site?

Texas Parks and Wildlife has a lot of information on their site although it
definitely has a meandering stream quality to it, i.e. you can go in a
myriad of directions, some right, some wrong, in your search for the correct
info. The fishing section is obviously gamefish oriented because TPWD is
definitely a hook and bullet organization. Delve a little deeper into the
sight to find the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center
( and you
can get a little broader picture. Of special note is the education link
which will take you to the Center's "Fish School" which has a number of
grade specific lesson plans which are ready to use in classrooms anywhere.
(Jay, take note of this as it would be a great link for NANFA education
committee) I heartily recommend that any members out there that have school
age children let your kids' teachers know about these lesson plans AND your
willingness to help implement them in the classroom. Teachers love easy to
implement lessons especially if they come with a resident expert. Several
things are accomplished: 1)kids are introduced to native fishes and their
ecology/biology/conservation, etc., 2)the kids may actually get to go on a
real field trip (out into the field instead of just into another building),
and 3)you get to spend time with your kid and other kids who may never have
the opportunity to be introduced to your hobby/passion.
