Hello Everyone, I'm working on a regional recreational map that is designed to emphasis or highlight other rivers or water bodies to fly fisherman. We have a very famous river in our region and it would be useful to show both local and out of state anglers that many other possibilities exist.

I've struggled to find an acceptable method to highlight the linear(stream) features and have started to consider using some sort of symbols to bring attention to these other rivers and streams.

The map covers an area of roughly 200 x 150 miles.

Thanks in advance.

Without showing us the map it is hard to visualize a solution to your problem.

Martin, I've decided to go back and "simplify" the map a bit. I had too many conflicting layers and the map was becoming far too comlex. I plan on posting the map in the near future.

Cheers,
Paul
