    ( I think you have to be able to honestly say, that at least once in your fly fishing career, you had to duck to keep from getting slapped in the face by a creek chub in the middle of your back cast.) Now that's funny

How exclusive is this club, I don't know if I have access to creek chubs, I thought that was the name of the lure George Perry caught the world record largemouth bass on in 1932.

    I think that in the spirit of inclusiveness that fallfish (Fallfish Unlimited is a non-starter), stoneroller minnows, and horneyheads should be allowed to count too. But I'm can't make an official policy statement without approval from HNT.
    I do think that we should exclude sunfish from membership eligibility, and of course, brook trout are right out... (Mind you that catching a creek chub in a stream full of stunted brookies is a feat worthy of bragging.)

    Yes, it is. (Semotilus atromaculatus -- I had to look that part up). IIRC, it's bigger than the river chub (go figure) and smaller than a fallfish (all are chubs).

    I've taken up deliberately fishing for chubs about once a year. They can be a lot of fun on light tackle.

    Hear, hear!

    One of my most memorable catches was about a 7" creek chub caught with a rod that was actually designed for chub fishing.
