Last week I went to visit my daughter who just returned to the U.S. from Argentina. She and her husband had been down there trying to sell some property and finally had enough. The good ol’ USA never looked so good she says.
“Be sure and bring a couple of fly rods so we can go fishing” she says, and you don’t have to ask me twice.
This area where she’s at is surprisingly full of water with lots of small creeks and streams and tons of warm water species. So that was going to be our target fish, or so we thought. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate and the wind blew so hard it was impossible to even cast. That’s fishing.
But, after seeing all of those nice close-ups of John’s bass I had to copy a few pictures of the bass and sunfish from around where I was. Now, lets see if any of you can identify what these fish are. They all came out of the same area.
Obviously this is a bass, but what kind?
Here’s another of the same kind.
Bluegills are everywhere in this country, but here’s a couple that are a little different.
Now here’s a new one for most of us. No, I’m not in Central America.
Like most species color variations differ a lot.
I’ll post the rest of the story after we’ve had a few guesses.
