    Brian thank for the invite. Boy that place was not easy to find. Very intresting stuff it was for sure. Got there late but just in time to catch the part on Bull Trout in full. The part on how a Bull goes up waterfalls by crawling rather then jumping was very intresting as it was learning just how far those fish can travel from water system to water system. Hard to belive that a fish has to be an endangered before the time is taken to study it and try to understand it range, feeding habits and other things about it.
    Once again thanks for posting the event. I learned quite abit.Thank you.
