    Default Biggest fish worked: how about # of species?

    Ard's thread on biggest fish has over 7,000 views. How about the number of species caught on fly?

    I think we should divide it up between fresh and salt so as not to give us guys that have done both a huge edge. Probably should limit it to fish species too so frogs, bats, pelicans, seagulls, snakes, gators and lizzards should probably be excluded altogether.

    What say?

    Jim: You should add your list to your thread, I'm sure it must be pretty long, considering where you live.
    Mine is rather short: Rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout, grayling, pink salmon, sockeye salmon, king salmon, smallmouth bass, perch, blue gill, whitefish, lake trout, artic char, dolly varden. I'm probably missing a few but at least that is a good start.

    I'm brand new to fly fishing, so I haven't had the chance yet to fish saltwater on the fly, though that will change in a week.
    Freshwater: Steelhead, Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Chinook Salmon, Channel Cat, Carp, Rock Bass, Blue Gill, Largemouth Bass, Pike, the smallest Perch in history; hopefully this list will be expanding soon!
    Hooked an Atlantic salmon this season and got a good look at it but lost it

    Good one Jim,

    I tallied on my hp 15C and came up to 35 different kind of fish.

    35,

    my "most wanted" list is slim at best-

    pike (yeah, i know, i should have one by now. but #@&^ are they elusive around here)
    walleye (will be looking towards dan for tips on these guys)
    brook trout (got access to a family cabin in eastern ohio)
    white bass (readily avaliable in a number of lakes around here)
    mooneye
