I own 2 Boykins a 16 year old male and a 8 year old female. I have never owned a English Cocker but I have hunted with a couple. I would say that the Boykin is a little slower covering ground in the uplands but a better water retriever, they still are great flushers. Boykin males are bigger than cockers and are available with different coats, curly, wavey and flat. If you get a curly Boykin they are pretty well suited for late season duck hunting, my male would sit out in the open on the front of my boat watching the sky completely covered with ice and was as happy as a dog could be.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Good Luck!

Gunner will be 17 this December. I plan on taking him out for duck opener and let him retrieve one or two hopefully and then retire him. It will be sad Gunner has been by far the best dog that I have had.

Thanks for the help with the grass it is looking great again.

      That sounds encouraging. Did you notice all the dead carp on shore? I wonder what's up with that, a virus or something maybe?

      I've never trout fished in MN and was hoping to get some help as a newcomer to the state. I know there are a lot of streams but I've also read that DNR info on them is often out of date and I dont want to drive an hour or more to a desolate stream.    Most seem to either have only browns or only small brooks. I really am after some medium size, 12 to 14 inches, rainbow trout for the smoker so I definitely will release any big browns if I catch one.    I've got waders and a kayak and am willing to do what is necessary to get to good, less pressured water.    Bonus offer, I have 2 very stable fishing kayaks, you can stand up in them, and would be more than happy to let you use one if you wanted to organize a float down river in exchange for showing me a decent spot to get some rainbows. Any takers or advice?    Edit - I live in Andover and would prefer to keep the drive below an hour and a half unless it's a well worth while stretch of water.

      Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

      Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately.
