Chad, The ponds you designed look awesome! Not sure if you would remember me, but I worked up at the Nat Am in Onaway and threw the long retired in the 10th. I own one of the pre-national training properties that you may have been on. No water though. US Fish and Wildlife is planning to build a dike and spillway to flood an area about 5-6 acres. I can dig the rest deeper and include points, islands etc. at my own expense. I'm in the process of clearing trees and brush from the low area now, but am not sure where to go from there. We surveyed to see where the max water level will be, to the best of our ability, with all the trees, but I could use some ideas on how to approach it to get the nicest pond possible. If you shoot me an e-mail address, I can send some pics. Would like your opinion if you have the time.
Thanks and Congrats again on Trav's National win. It was pretty cool to witness it from out in the field!
