  1. To be more helpful and educate, I suggest you scan the books you keep resourcing as did the Conestoga River Club with the Conestoga River Guides by Earle Rebman and the Conestoga Valley Association.
    This seems like a more fair example of publishing and educating for the public since the books are out-of-print. I own and use all of them, but I am lucky.
