<font color='#000000'>Hi,

I am trying to write a half decent fish log (some copies will be made available for FREE). &nbsp; I obviosly do not know all of the species and sub species that are fished for sport, and am apealing for your help to build a comprehensive list.
The following was kindly given to me by a friend, but is somewhat limited.
If anyone can give me additions to the list (no mucking about please,this is a serious project) and also give me help defining species and sub-species I would be happy to give them a copy of the log when it is finished.
Perhaps anyone who intends helping could look at the board before submitting so that we can avoid duplications.
Obviously we all fish in different regions, so perhaps it would be a good idea to list by region as well (Hey, perhaps someone in England could catch a fish notmally found in another region - that would be good news)

Looking forward to your help

<font color='#810541'>Mullet Golden Grey
Gurnard Tub
Blenny - dunno the names of them all
Poor Cod (not that I can tell the difference from Pouting most of the time - Mike, can you post on this
)

Think rockcool, should be rock cook


No sign of Mersey Trout, probably best left out &nbsp;


Catergorised by fresh/saltwater would be a good idea.</font>

<font color='#000000'>Here&#39;s an idea. Why not get a book on British fish species from your local library? Make sure its a relatively recent one coz names change over the years. Two other things - 1. There are two skate species which are meant to frequent British waters, the common and long nosed (I think). 2. The sea trout and the brown trout are the same species (Salmo trutta). They are not sub-species of the same thing but appear to be different modes of life cycle for the same species.</font>

<font color='#000000'>Good list there boys it will be one #### of a mission to catch some of those species mentioned as some are only occasional visitors to the British Isle, well boys good luck. next time I go fishing I&#39;ll keep a log and we can compile what we catch on-line if you want. I may be able to set something up if I have the spare time to do so.</font>

<font color='#000000'>A big thank-you to all who have helped with this, I think I must have them all now. &nbsp;Give me a bit of time and I will let you know when it&#39;s done, then arrange copies for all who have helped, (if wanted)

Thanks again

Clive</font>

<font color='#000080'>Fishing Fanatic,
Yeah I thought that was strange but 5 of the first 10 are freshwater fish.....and it means I could write down 5 instead of 2 &nbsp;

<font color='#000000'>Hi Chris thanks for the input but I think that horse mackerel are the same as scad and that spanish mackerel are not located within british waters all though I could be wrong about that.</font>
