Great stuff Burg-
Sounds like you've got the equipment sorted, but if you need a hand on a field trip to the water, I may be able to squeeze in some time to drive down and help ya for an outing. Otherwise, I'll get you a bunch of copies of Vermont Trout Streams which I revised/re-wrote years ago. Good fallback/overview for the kids of their states waters,etc.
Not back from NZ until late April, so don't hesitate to remind me around then, and we can meet up in Montpeculier or the like as shipping books ain't cheap.
