Boat is a 12 ft if I remember correctly.
I chase the allure of standing in a river, casting dries in an attempt to watch that beast come up and take my fly.  Then I usually blow it by setting the hook to soon....

I can bring Doug a 25lb thrust electric motor if he wants. LOL may be quicker to row dependant on your boat size?

Good, would you happen to have a battery to match?  Or a half dead one to keep Doug from catching up to the rest of us!
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

Chris just keep one thing in mind.

I know where there is a fully charged one, and it happens to be in a boat with camo seats ;)

 Too be very honest with you, the two batteries I have will both be half lifer's. I will bring them both fully charged. Doug should bring his oars for backup. ;D
If only I had a penny for every time I thought about fishing.

Looks like Matt and Noah might need oars for the second half then  8)

Btw the timing of this might be perfect, as fall stocking got underway today.

That's great to hear Doug! Hopefully they'll be stocking Mill Lake a little closer to the date of the competition.
For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

Great to hear!  They usually seem to stock it twice in October, once early and once late, so hopefully that trend will continue!

Sweet, hopefully it is on a three week cycle and not a four week cycle then!

Where did you hear this?  I checked the gofishbc site and they don't have a stocking listed.  They're usually really good about putting it up the day of or the day after.  Nice day to be on the water though.  :)

I see that Facebook mentions Green Timbers being done.
