    I imitate the insects in terms of nutrient content. Instead of feathers for looks, I use soybeans and corn for flavor. Also fish trained to eat things they not normally into. Lots of training. I fish but is gets to be like work and more often than not for work.

    It is quite fun. Just the fishing part is not. We have a "porno channel" in lab. Students have to watch all day long until they get blue in the face. A fun part is teaching students how to "squeeze them to please them" once spawning underway. We also try figure how to get better growth. We can get Bluegill up to 1 pound in just under a year.

    I understand. Your not a very good fisherman. Haha. Nah I gotcha. It is pretty interesting though to be able to turn over a few rocks along a stream or a net in the riffles and be able to identify the different types of nymphs. By the way I'm sure you know but watching a dragonfly nymph prey on the others is a pretty cool sight.
