V'Country - That was me in the pontoon. I don't know the church area too well, so I can't help you there. I think I'm going to start putting in at Miller's and work my way upstream to the shoals. I've been stuck in the Weir pool too long. Also, I'm going to start putting in some at Peach Orchard and work both up and down the river. There's just too many people fishing above the weir these days..Never fished the Soho, but would like to.
Your essay would be of "interest" to a lot of guys on this forum and you would get A LOT of additional input for sure.
