There's only one fish species left...

It's 2697 and we've decimated the environment and there's only one fish species left on earth to fish for. What would you want it to be?


For me, it's brook trout (though of course these would probably be the first fish to die out).

Depends...

If I was living in the North East - Striped Bass

If I had no monetary restrictions and could travel at will - Bonefish.

My goodness, what a grim and depressing premise.

I'd have to say whatever is left, hoping for something along the lines of pike, smallmouth, or stripers.

The significant increase in pollution and other such factors have combined to cause great mutations in fish. The now are amphibious, with large teeth and have become man's worse predator! Waders are made of Kevlar and flies have micro-explosive charges built into them.

If I'm good and heaven is what I hope it is by that time I'll be fishing for whatever species strikes my fancy each and every day.

Moi!

I would want it to be fishing in a river.... ( whatever species)

I like to walk, explore and disappear for the day...
(don't like to feel stuck in a same spot all day...)

I don't really like fishing out of a boat.... ( especially when it's "Rockin Rollin ! )


Hopefully at that time we can still make our own lunches and drink red wine.....


(follow me...I know a secret pool!!)

Yea....

Oncorynchus Mykiss.....

As the Citys burn
And the Oceans boil
As I look over my shoulder
On the northward trek

The wild spaces greet me
Trails and Valleys intice me
Rainbows emblazen the sky
And hide in secret pools

With them I will finish my life
With them chasing each cast
Fighting hard to stay alive
Each of us
Brothers till the end......

DH

Since the accelerated mutation from the addition of a fifth season (spring, summer, fall, fallout and nuclear winter) the hybridization of the steelstripesalmonbone has provided a single reason for flyfishers to rejoice amidst the toxic rivers of Metropolis during our avg. 23 year lifespans.

Now that's a deep-winter question if I ever heard one!

Juro,

I guess that would be Brook Trout.

I cheat in my answer as any salmonoid population that has access will develop a certain % of sea runners, so I'd have the best of both worlds.

Unfortunately, as you mentioned, they'd probably be the first to go

Why the square tail, IMHO, it is just the most beautiful freshwater species.

This thread has given me some pretty good laughs so far this morning (especially FrenchCreek and juro). Thanks!

I dont post often - on any site - however, this is a good hypothetical. Well, 2697 is a long, looooooooong time from now. 692 years to be exact. Though I like Seans response a lot (man after my own heart on that one), lets be honest; well all be over 700 years old, for goodness sakes! Furthermore, in addition to we old fishing souls, there will likely be very, very few species left on land or in the sea. Im banking on rats, mosquitoes, cockroaches, tarpon and carp, everything else will be a bonus (hey were using predictive natural selection (PNS) theory here : ).

With this in mind, Im going with tarpon. Remember, were over 700 years young now (probably look and sound like Yoda, too. Well all age into that same look) and Im going to want a fish that still reminds me whos the boss after seven centuries of fly-rodding bring me right to my creaky little knees, keeping that sense of humbility fresh at 700+.

Oh Yea!!!!!

Juro,
I'd consider a sidetrip if it meant hooking into a Steelstripesalmonbone (Oncorynchus Hackus un Ripus Chuus un Flisus) If for nothing else but some Teeth for my hatband.
I'll be easy to recognize.....the one with the Titanium strand woven 5 wt, Ross "Andromina" series reel with Sonic casting and pattented " MM depth technology" and "Reel to Life" Nano Tech RC flys.

Show me the Soup Strand, nothing is to toxic for Da Hawk!( Or to silly
