Updated Personal Life List

With my 2010 western trip behind me, and at least another 6 weeks before I might be able to hit the water again, I thought I would update my personal species/sub-species life list.

Because my search has turned up quite a few species in introduced waters, I have distinguished the locations I have caught salmonids between native and introduced waters.
