Today's speaker was Sam Bishop, member of the Rotary Club of Santa Cruz.  He showed beautiful slides of the fishing trip he took into the South American country of Guyana.  He used just a fly rod to catch and release some giant river fish, some over 100 pounds.  Most of the fish he caught had lots of large and sharp teeth.
