But I forget that and so when Bob Jenkins told me his vanity license plates read "SALMO T," I expected to run into someone who spends all his free time fishing. It wasn't true, he is just like I was before this Fishing America project started and that is a person who loves fishing but work is one level above fishing.
Bob is an ichthyologist at Roanoke College who specializes in non-game fish. He has spent extensive time studying a fish called the Roanoke Bass.
Bob pointed out a place where a semi-truck driver couldn't manage the bend in the road. Bob said he doesn't like fishing for stocked fish.
I said, "You are going to fish for Brown Trout which are not native to the Smith River."
And Bob corrected me, "I'm talking about wild fish, not native fish.
Bob walked farther up the creek and he was soon out of sight around the bend in the creek.
I had just put one of the crayfish on my hook and was trying to catch a Smallmouth Bass when I noticed Bob slowly walking toward me dragging a fish that was on end of his line. When he was close enough to show me he said, "This is a Roanoke Bass."
Bob unhooked the fish to release it, but it was apparently too worn out to swim right away and hung out by Bob's leg for several minutes before slowly swimming back upstream.
Bob walked down to the Smith River and started fishing for wild Brown Trout.
Bob said, "I think we did incredibly well. Not only did we catch a Roanoke, I caught and released several Brown Trout."
Bob was ecstatic, "I love those trout. %&*# love those trout.
Bob said "No!
After a pause Bob said, "Even though the trout on average aren't giants that's one hell of a stream."
We talked more about my fishing project, "I'm trying to find a person in Kentucky who is named Kenneth Tucky. Then I'm going to see if Kentucky Bass live in Kentucky Lake and if so I'm going to see if I can fish in the state of Kentucky for Kentucky Bass in Kentucky Lake with Ken Tucky."
After a little laugh Bob told me Kentucky Bass is a local common name for a fish, "You're perpetuating a misnomer. The correct name is the Spotted Bass which occurs pretty much throughout the Mississippi River Basin."
I asked, "What else is it called? Maybe I know it by some other name."
"I don't know of any," said Bob, "You're dealing with all these common names and when you write your book I won't know what the hell fish you caught."
We were almost through eating when Bob said, "I think fly fishing is an art; good flies and well made casts."
Bob said, "Every time I've encountered Carp when I've been fishing, as soon as the fly hits the water they turn, they bolt, they're gone.
Bob is a neo-Deadhead since 1987 and has been to several live Grateful Dead concerts.
In the morning Bob fixed breakfast as we listened to more Grateful Dead concerts and he talked more about fishing, "I'm a specialist.
I've been in contact with Bob since and his book has been published after being reduced to about 1100 pages and he has found a couple other places to fly fish for Brown trout that are much closer to where he lives. He has also identified from my photographs one fish that I caught as a Bluehead Chub and the other as our targeted species, the Roanoke Bass.
