Fish Photos

Roger, Gene's brother, was here during Christmas vacation. We have so much fun with Roger. He is nine years younger than Gene and they look very much alike. In Magdalena someone is always walking up to Gene and asking, "How are things in Arizona?" They will walk up to Roger and ask him about me. This time at the airport in Austin, the ticket agent asked if they were twins! Nice for Gene, the eldest!

We went to Cabela's in Buda with Roger. Gene and I are not hunters, campers or fishermen, the store doesn't hold a great deal of fascination for us. They do however have a huge aquarium and an unbelievable amount of dead stuffed animals, not unlike a natural history museum. A very nice display if you like that sort of thing. Roger knew the person that shot one deer and the place it was from in Arizona -- small world.

No photos of the stuffed animals, probably some sort of copyright thing, there. I don't think you can copyright a swimming generic fish, so I'm posting these photos. Pretty nice aquarium.

This fish was about a foot or two long. Pretty big.

This may be the same fish. It is a little blurry, but I like his pucker. :)

These came out pretty good. There was a white catfish, but he was camera shy and didn't show up well in my photos.

Is this a more useful way to pass the time? I've got to get busy now......

Jo: Nice fish pictures. The first two are of a Bluegill. It is a big one. The third picture has two Large Mouth Bass with a Gar in the back. The catfish must of been an albino with red eyes. Catfish don't normally come in white.

Hey, fishing guy, thanks. I'll send you a small copy of the white fish and you can identify it. It wasn't clear enough for the page.
