Wow, nice lists.

 

My goal for the last six + years is to catch each of Alaska's sport fish species on an original fly of my own. They include all of the fresh and salt water species. I'm counting all five species of salmon as three different fish each depending on where they are fished, lake-run, river-run or sea-run. Rainbow and steel head are two different species.

 

My original list consisted of 25 or so species but now it has gotten way out of hand. Depending on how you count it could go on forever. We have about 36 species of rock fish alone.

 

I'm up to around 28 species now, with no end in site. I've been chronicling them in a blog. You can check it out here if you like

On the fly only? Not that different for me anyway, as I've never fly fished in the salt.

 

Mine is somewhat limited compared to others:

 

Trout

-Brook

-Rainbow

-Brown

 

Dolly Varden

 

Bass

-LM

-SM

Crappie

-Black

Perch

-Yellow

Sunfish

-(growing up in New England, we lumped them all together as 'kivver", it wasn't until I was @ 40 years old that I realized there were different types, now I try to differentiate them, but have not systematically listed each type, and there are so many hybrids I loose patience).

Dace

Chain Pickerel

If we expand outside of fish: one bat, and one dumb, but devoted and forgiving, mutt hound.

I cough a baby alligator on a popper. They are fast. Caught a big one (6 to 8 ft) on the baitcaster, pulled the kayak around.

Not bats, no crayfish that I remember. Two juvenile sea gulls fishing salt water.

I hooked a decent snapping turtle once by accident but decided to cut my line rather than screw around with those jaws.
