James River April 24-29thhttp://newriversmallies.proboards.com/i ... hread=1549
There was one around here on the New, last year that I was unable to make it to, and looks like it is going to be Sept 5-9th this year.http://newriversmallies.proboards.com/i ... hread=1518
Some guys from NCangler and from the river bassin forums usually do a trip 2 to blue cat on the new. I haven't seen any posts yet for this year. I went down one day and fished with these guys and had a great time, I was not able to camp, but it is a really nice place.
There are lots of nice places to camp on the New, I would say if you can not find a group with dates already planned, and have dates in mind and an idea of what area of the new you want to hit. Post it in a few of these forums, and I am sure you will have plenty of people step up to help, and join you, if you wish.
If I can help you in any way let me know.
