This sounds crazy I know, but still I am wondering. Does a gar stink? Let me explain, a couple of days ago I was eating lunch next to the pond in the city park, when I noticed a very strong fish smell. I mean I've smelt fish all of my life, but this was extreme. There was a very large fish that came to the top of the water, not far from where I was sitting. I only got a glimpse of it, but I would've sworn it was a gar. It isn't a very big pond, and if someone has turned loose some gar in there, I know they will probably take over the pond, but I can't swear as to what kind of fish it was. But it had a very strong odor. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with them.
thanks in advance,
Fly fishing is an art. I only wish I could stay within the lines when I color.
