Those of you who visited Jackson this summer will remember how
low the water was. Many of the collecting site which have been
very productive for me in the past were uncollectable, and the
diversity was nowhere near what most of us are used to. This was
due to a two year draught. Well, it appears that nature is trying to
remedy this, as we have had plenty of rainfall during the last 2-3
months. I'm beginning to entertain hopes that the redfin darter
stream in my back yard will once again hold water!

Also, Steve Ross' book on Mississippi fishes should be out very
soon. The last book on the subject was written in the 50's and was
heavily biased towards the commercial value of fishes as either
food or bait.

Whenever I see an old lady slip and fall on a wet sidewalk,
my first instinct is to laugh. But then I think, what if
I was an ant, and she fell on me. Then it wouldn't seem
quite so funny.
