Chris Scharpf's article on herrings and shad in the latest "American
Currents" is the most comprehensive and best-written work on clupeids that I
have ever seen ! It is a great article to relax with for those of us
exhausted from chasing the studfish, shiners, and darters of northeast
Alabama. It provided me with a new sense of appreciation for a group of
fish that I once found boring (and sometimes annoying).

Recommended reading for those who love shad...required reading for those who
do not !
