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...

It is certainly seeming like we need bigger rivers in BC with good definable beats so we can get everyone into the event.  :)

I look forward to seeing everyone there!
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.

I totally agree Chris! It'd be nice to find a river with 5 stretches of water that are fairly close together. The longer days will certainly make it possible to extend the travel times between the sessions, so we'll have to look into some other options that will allow us to open up room for 4 more competitors...

I'm open to suggestions on locations for future competitions if anyone would care to email them to me: info@innovativeflyfisher.com
