Fun little read. Thanks for the entertainment. I have been guilty of targeting some little critters just to see if I could catch them, it is all fun.

I worked on a golf course when I was in high school and college, and we had a small pond (water hazard) that dried up every summer. I would occasionly find little fish in it when there was water in it, somehow they would just appear.

I've heard that fish eggs often get stuck to the legs of wading birds and that can spread fish around. It's funny how when I am at a little creek with with my kids I get as intense about catching little hornyheads and suckers as if they were trophy bass.

That's interesting, about the bird. Explains a lot.

I followed a little creek from the Broad once, followed it as far as I could up a hillside without being Br'er Rabbit. Found several pools with little fish. Judging by the obstructions on the way up, I couldn't conceive how these fish could make their way up that stream. Don't know about the stream's origins. Can't imagine it being anything but a spring.
