New Book Explores Kansas Fishes


Most fishermen can probably name at least a dozen different kinds of fish that can be found in Kansas waters. But few anglers can name a hundred of them. Now, a new book called Kansas Fishes not only identifies the 140-some different species of fish found in Kansas rivers, lakes and streams, it also includes detailed and colorful illustrations to go along with them. Commentator Rex Buchanan took a look at this new book, fished-around for something to say, and came up with this.
