Hi Shawn,

Thank you for sharing this with us. These people are doing and have done some exceptional work. Especially interesting is the Smoky Madtom. You mentioned David. I have spent a few days on the stream with him. I know a lot of his former students. He is a great guy. I refer to his book often especially when I'm trying to tie a good baitfish pattern.
