NANFA-- Books Available at the Convention
Tue, 3 Jun 2003 18:16:53 -0400

I will be bringing native fish books, DeLorme atlases and other items
to the convention for your needs/wants. For those who don't know,
the DeLorme state atlases are very useful for finding remote and
not-so-remote fish collecting locales. You might also find them
useful if you get lost on your way to the group sites. I have a
limited quantity of Alabama and other states available as listed
below. I will be bringing books, but in case you want a particular
title, you may want to let me know before Thursday, so I can be sure
to have enough for everyone. These fish books are big and heavy, so
I won't bring all my stock unless you make a specific request. Not
all the titles listed here are yet on the web site, so go by this
list for now. All are in stock in limited quantities:
