In this episode of The Fisheries Podcast I chat with Matt Lewis, a Ph.D. student at Auburn University. Matt was working as a cancer researcher when his hobby of fly fishing introduced him to Redeye Bass. He fell in love with fishing for them and eventually wrote a book "Flyfishing for Redeye Bass." He left his job to return to Auburn University where he is working to develop methods to genetically differentiate between the different Redeye species. We discuss that research and also his Redeye Slam event that he and his colleagues have put together.
Main Point: Native fish and their habitat are important!
