In general, I can speak on most “fishy” topics provided that I have enough advance notice (2 - 3 months) with the exceptions of: Reef Tanks, Salt Water Fish, Barbs & Characins. I feel that I do not have enough experience in these areas to answer detailed questions. I do have a number of "Canned Talks" that I do frequently and can have ready with a 2 weeks’ notice. I never give exactly the same talk twice so I do need some time to make changes. Fees are negotiable. I request only 2 things:
(1) no money comes out of my pocket for the privilege of speaking to your club (expenses, ie. Travel, lodging, meals). (My wife’s mandate! I’d probably pay you to talk fish!). I would prefer to bivouac at someone's home & eat home-cooked meals anyway. Visiting with fellow hobbyists and staying up ‘til 5:00 AM talking fish is optional.
(2) a year's membership to your club.
I gear all of my talks to the type of folks in attendance, whether beginner or experienced. Just let me know.
