I enjoyed his talk on a fish I have never fished for. It's a trip I would like to do in the future with my flyfishing club. A matter of a four hour drive to get to the East coast. Barry comes across as an expert in many areas of fishing. I gained a lot of knowledge from his talk especially on the Peacock Bass.

I didn't hear the last show, but I do want to thank you for making all these shows available via download. I'm listening to Bill Edrington's Caddis show right now. You guys are really terrific.

Excellent show.... except I was somewhat dismayed that peacock bass were stocked. I know this invasive species was brought into eat/control another invasive species much like the chinook was stocked in the Great Lakes to control alewife. Now, the chinook has been good for "business" in the Great Lakes, we now worry when the alewife numbers decline, how ironic. If we only used chinook to reduce the alwife so native species could have been re-established. If fishery managers initially took a longer range view they could have conducted rehabiltaion efforts as well as control measures during the almost fifty years we have been stocking cinooks. The Central New York Fly Tiers have been lobbying to get greater efforts to establish alantic salmon spawning stocks in their native streams. I hope the fisheries managers can use the peacock bass to get the numbers of tialpia under control while working to rehabilitate the system... we have to remember aquatic invasive species are the single greatest threat to aquatic ecosystems. They reduce biodiversity and threaten native species. Again I enjoyed the show, Tom Marks NY Director Great Lakes Sport Fishing Council

This was great! Not enough people mention the relationship between Peacock Bass and cichlids. Seriously, a Peacock Bass is a big Oscar/Jack Dempsey etc etc. It almost should not be called a "bass". Also VERY nice to know that there are sub-species.

Enjoyed it very much. Very large topic to be covered in only 1.5 hrs. covered lots of ground for a beginner to get started.

Thanks for the great show. I love (to eat) salmon and love flyfishing. Unfortunately I have not been able to go flyfishing for salmon yet. Memphis doesn't give me many opportunities, but thank you for a show that took me there in my imagination!

Great show as usual guys. I wish I could listen live, but I work nights, so I subscribe on iTunes and listen on my iPod while at work. It is a great way to make my evenings of running a printing press a little more fun. Keep it up.

Just got done listening to the show. As always, I enjoyed this one too. I know I've said this before, but I am especially thankful and grateful that I can download these programs and listen to them over and over. I usually am doing something related to work while trying to listen to the program, and I have never been able to listen well to anything while thinking about something else. I did pick up on enough though and will keep it on hand should I ever decide to target Atlantic salmon. Btw, I think most of the Atlantic salmon that are in WA are in the lakes but I believe I did hear something about some being released in Puget Sound.

I enjoyed it very very much! I live in Lake Havasu City,AZ. We had an awesome carp fishery. I have been trying to use a small chartruse downwing fly size 14 with little success. What Barry said about flash, answer the question I was asking myself. What I will do is tie the same fly in light olive. I also have a couple of cotton wood plants in my back yard so I will set my fishing days up when they start to bloom. I have tied several cottonwood seed imitations using a size 10 scud hook. With yellow tying thread with white wool tied egg style. I catch them for sport and used to catch them all of the time when I lived on the Delta in California. I use to use a yellow body spider with white rubber legs along the sweepers.
