2003 NANFA Convention photos by Bruce Stallsmith
The two above photos were taken by Phil Gentry of UAH's press office Saturday, June 7, at Sipsey Fork during the convention. The top picture, left to right, shows Tom Laughlin, Bob Muller, Brady Porter, Mark Binkley, Bruce Stallsmith, Leo Long, and Rick Phillips (hat). The second picture was at the same site, but shows the limestone walls that the river cuts through as it runs off the plateau. Fishes found bv netting and snorkeling included blackspotted killifish, longear sunfish, burrhead shiners, blacktail shiners, alabama shiners, river darters, muscadine darters, speckled darters, tuskaloosa darters, blackbanded darters, and Mobile logperch.
On the Saturday of the convention, at the Sipsey Fork of the Black Warrior River in the Bankhead National Forest, Brady Porter and Bob Muller examine a seine net haul. I realize now that almost everyone was wearing a hat on a bright day, so it was hard to get faces!
The next 3 photos are on the Brier Fork of the Flint River near Huntsville, on Sunday June 8.
