Well, Dale, sorry you couldn't make the talk but without giving you the text of the 45-minute presentation . . .

A lot of it involves:

1. Learning the IDs of various fish so you know how to filter out the common guys.

2. Learning the habitats of the version of Mr. Small you are seeking.

3. Sitting in one place at times.

3. Being patient and improving your skills of observation.

I use a rather small magnifying glass. It's actually contained in the end of my Silva comnpass (Explorer model, I think - costs about $21) so I kill two birds with one stone.

Here's a project for you. One your next dive, you'll easily spot two kinds of gobies - blue-banded and balck-eyed. Try to find the third semi-common goby, the zebra goby.

Good luck. Let me kno whow you did.
