In our society, there is a strong belief that most pretty things are good, and vice-versa. That’s portrayed in the movies, on television, and also on the fishing scene. There are exceptions, however, and one of them is the toothy gar. There are several different species of gar and all of them have survived prehistoric times. According to some of the more learned folks they have changed little from those times until now. What has changed is many people’s attitude toward their place within at least some of the fishing community.
