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...

Evan Paterson and I will be teaming up for this event, and we have a boat and motor.
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Here's a very recent photo of Englishman Lake. I have a sneaking suspicion that pre-fishing Harmon before the April 8 cutoff might be a bit tricky...

Wow! We might have to change the venue if it's not ice-free for the event.

Please keep us posted if anyone hears any news...

I can just see Johnny going around the lake with a chain saw over the side of his boat cutting up the ice  ;D

Its a gorgeous lake with some beautiful fish.  I wish my plans hadn't gotten mixed up and I have to miss this one.
