Hey Chris your right it's never too early to plan and I concur with your plan either weekend would be great for your stated reasons. I would speculate that there would be a better oppurtunity at connecting with a King Salmon during the July weekend but there would probably be a few less Coho near the beach. Compromise is always part of the equation. I think NZ trout bum is on a trout trip but he early on expressed an intrest in something like this.
A gathering of folks who own there own boats that could pair up with a few other board members would probably be fun I can think of a handful of boats that are out there from this board and mayhaps there are more about. Anywho with almost a year to plan it out it should be a roaring event. Who knows maybe Chris will even be able to get his buddies in the North of Falcon process to have it open next year again!!!!!!!!!!
We will have to bring this back to the top once a month for a while to see if we can generate the proper response.
