>Hooker, The reason I asked if any other streams have this potential
is because I have this dream about buying some stream property and managing a trophy
trout area(sort of like Brigadoon, but not as stuffy). I don't think that I could afford to buy any property on the
Soque, it sounds to expensive. Does this seem realistic or should it stay a dream?
Anyway, if you have any thoughts or ideas on this or know anyone who has any thoughts or ideas,
please let me know.

Also, what is Mark of the Potter? Is this a fishing location on the upper hooch?

Lastly, I want to tell that I enjoy reading all your interesting stories
on this chat board. I am so glad I found this board, I have learned tons about flyfishing.
