    I greatly appreciate the offer but I suggest you give the 3 books to Scott. Reading books, magazines, news papers and such is quite a struggle for me with my failing eyesight. Again, thanks.

  24. After seeing some pics on the ISA Facebook Page with smallmouth being laid on the ground for the shot, I felt there was a good stage and opportunity education. As your Conservation Director, and in accordance to our ISA Mission, I plan to run an education campaign on the Facebook Page to educate the public. The Plan is to post one (1) note per month thru the winter season. Here is Novembers Note that was just posted > https://www.facebook.com/notes/terry-j-dodge/cr-cpr-practice-practice-practice-an-isa-conservation-education-article/10155808065489299/
  25. Conservation Director's Note

    Thanks for pointing that out. I may go back and edit that info in. I thumb the smallmouth and hold it in the water, pull the tripod/camera out of my vest, set it on the bank at it's lowest setting, turn camera on/select timer/select 10 seconds, ready myself and my catch, camera ready light flashes 3-2-1, lift catch, camera triggers. It's a pretty fast operation. This is why it is important to know how to use your camera and settings. I don't even need to look at my camera while doing all of the mentioned above.
