It was a rainy/misty day again in Northwestern Montana. It was a perfect day to put on our waders and go for a pond side stroll. Today we went out to collect snail specimens for our parasite research.  The coolness of the day was fine, once we hit the this mucky mess, any hotter it would have been to live for me.. not the greatest site for fishing, but an excellent parasite contraption to gather for our snail/parasite study. This is the beginning stage to test for parasites that cause swimmers itch.
