I'm at the Missoula Public Library showing some sepp holzer movies and answering questions about the mighty, the glorious, the amazing sepp holzer.  And then somebody asked me a question about my experience doing sepp holzer stuff. 

I tell the story about a pond I built that has a deep bowl for trout habitat and a finger off of that pond that has trout food habitat.  The next year it had so many polywogs that the pond was black with them.  Polywogs is a sign of good health for a pond since frogs are so sensitive to toxins.
