Fish List - The First 100


The game: catch as many species of fish as possible.
The rules: to count, a fish must be captured by any legal method, preferably with hook and line, but hand or spear catches also count where legal (at least how I count it!).

This post contains my first 100 species. For the race to 200, click here.

  1. Hey Bryan! You probably don't remember me but I served in Ecuador around the same time you were there. Name is Brecon Powell. I was just surfing the web for ice fishing pictures of Henry's lake and thought hey that guy looks familiar! I'm going ice fishing there this weekend. Have you been back to Ecuador? I forget your last name. You can find me on facebook. Get a hold of me next time you are in Idaho and we'll go fishing. Take care.
