Ian and Charity have done this a bunch and are very helpful.
Second your comments, the Rutters did their Hazel Creek presentation to our local TU this summer and it was top notch. They know it inside out and had lots ot tips on where to stay and where to fish and the history. If you get a chance to hear their presentation do it, I would love to take my first trip there with one of their annual outings, but I could only afford to go as a paid pack mule. Take pictures, take notes and have fun!
