    Ed, we're talking about getting you guys on the water ALOT earlier. Depending on water levels, increasing the float to double beats (which of course would make it two continous stretches). Just logistically we could be doing a nonstop shuttle if we did two floats. Plus, my equiptment will be tied up prepping the big meal that night. :)

    Jerry, I'm just greedy and you know it. Early would likley mean a nymph or doulbe nymph game. Later would likley mean a hopper, hopper dropper or hopper dry game. I like both games too much to compromise.

    I'll gladly take two consecutive beats, or one much longer one with more hours from launch to recovery. I'll also gladly put a grill, cooler full of vittles and drinks and make a three or four hour mid day stop for the heat of the day. It seems we are always leaving the water just as the fishing should be getting going.

    Well, we want to get you guys on water and fishing well before the bikini hatch. LOL. But, if we do back to back beats, it'll keep you on the water longer. Chuck and I are talking over some rules and some benefits for teams who check in early. We would like to get as many up there on Friday checked in to relieve the pressure of check ins on Saturday morning.

    I'm thinking boats and shuttles will be the big need this year. So if you have a boat that can fish two, be ready to row. :)

    LOL Ed. How's about we just fish the Yak hard and I feed you all well?

    Did our recon. Went great and caught fish! Not a lot but found soft seems and willing fish through that massive hatch.
