Started reading this book a few years ago after seeing it in In-Fisherman.


As I get to the end of a 550 page book low and behold, he mentions the Smallmouth Alliance. On page 486 as he's talking about smallmouth in streams he says "and new angler organizations like The Smallmouth Alliance which urges good stewardship in smallmouth management"

Book Description

Wildstream is a definitive treatment of the ecology of streams and rivers. It covers river dynamics, life processes underwater, the crucial linkage between streams and the land, and life histories of stream organisms from bacteria to aquatic insects and many species of fish. Although Wildstream covers the fundamentals of river science, it is written in an informal style for students, anglers, paddlers, related professionals, and all who love rivers.

Jim, I noticed at Bass Pro in Bolingbrook they display huge logos of conservation groups on the wall above the exit doors. They have Ducks Unlimited, The Conservation Fund, Issack Walton, etc. Is there any chance of getting an ISA sign up there?
