Barbs and Backlashes


About Daryl

I am a lifelong resident of Nebraska (except for a couple of years spent going to graduate school in South Dakota). I have been employed as a fisheries biologist for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission for 20 years. My current tour of duty is as the fisheries outreach program manager.

I received my Bachelor’s of Science degree from the University of Nebraska in Natural Resource Management with an emphasis on fish and wildlife management. My Master’s degree in Fisheries Science is from South Dakota State University.

I am an active participant in the Walleye Technical Committee of the North-Central Division of the American Fisheries Society and in the Nebraska Chapter of the American Fisheries Society (served as state chapter secretary/treasurer and president). I have authored or co-authored four technical papers that have been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals and authored numerous articles and columns that have appeared in popular publications like NEBRASKAland magazine, Outdoor Nebraska newspaper, South Dakota Conservation Digest, Walleye Insider, and In-Fisherman.

For the past 10 years, I have taught Basic Fishing classes for Nebraska’s Becoming and Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program. I have frequently presented at scientific meetings (e.g. Midwest Fish and Wildlife Conference) and public meetings concerning fisheries management, and I am a seminar speaker on fish biology and fishing techniques.

I want to share my educational knowledge, but I also am an avid multi-species angler. I hold more than 70 Nebraska Master Angler Awards for 13 different species and hold more than 20 In-Fisherman Master Angler Awards for eight different species.

I love to talk fishing and answer questions about fishing in Nebraska, so if you have a question, by all means, e-mail it.

Daryl, enjoy your blog and the links you provide. Just thought I’d pass along a suggestion that maybe you might want to pass along. I have enjoyed looking at the P. falcon video feed, and have passed that link to one national forum I post on. Several have commented they enjoy it. I might be of interest if somebody would write a short explanation of the P. falcon situation, and what challenges these chicks face in reaching adulthood. Then if that link could be included someplace on the video feed so people could click on it, I think folks would find it interesting. I know I would. Best regards — Gary

Daryl, this isn’t for publication, just something to pass along to your bosses about the falcon camera. As I’ve told you, I posted the link on a couple of national message boards, and at least two people tell me that visit the site daily…so the Game and Parks Commission is getting some positive PR nationally. I know it’s not a “big deal” but any positive PR is good for the commission. Keep up the good work on your blog. — Gary

Great blog page & one I will come back to often.
Live in Ohio but usually fish Georgian Bay in Canada. My blog page is called Georgian Bay Bass Hole. It is pretty well known & fun to read in the off season. I made a blog page for a friend of mine that played football for the Nebraska Corn Huskers called Blue Bird Pete or now Bluebird Pete. He is a retired school teacher & coach & has devoted all of his free time to his Bluebirds & The Ohio Bluebird Society.I will send him your link.

Daryl,I have to tell you that you are the finest care taker of our fisheries.I appreciate the time you spend explaining how things are. I have never spent the time on a computer typing anything, but this needed to be said.I have fished the Omaha area and all over the state, in a boat,on the bank,or in waders. My favorite is in waders. I met you a few times in the past and I realized you have the same beliefs I share. It’s amazing to me how being a fisherman or woman has changed. You don’t need technology to be good at what you do,just experience. People have lost sight of the values of trial and error, thats what makes fishing or hunting a great thing. Keep up the great work, I ENJOY IT…

Really enjoy your Barb’ and Backlashes?

Question, I have is heading up to Verdel Landing this weeked to do a little walleye fishing. Is the boat ramp open, rumor has it that it is not open?

Thanks

Tim

Comment by Tim Miller

I have not heard anything about that boat ramp being closed. I would recommend you give our office at Niobrara State Park a call, they will know the current condition of that ramp, ngpc.niobrara@nebraska.gov or 402-857-3373.
