This spring my squirt and I went dipping in a bioswale expecting to catch frogs and tadpoles. A bioswale, by definition, is a man-made landscape element designed to concentrate and collect surface runoff water. Since this body of water was developed by people there shouldn’t be any fish.
With one quick swipe we thought we snagged a green frog but pulled our net up to find a large mud minnow instead! Our great surprise turned into the hit of the day. She was so happy to have a fish she had no choice but to kiss it 🙂
Take some time this summer to go dipping with nets in a body of water…you never know what you’re going to find!!!
