Sometimes even I am left wondering what I did wrong after an unproductive day of fishing.
My junior year of college I lived off campus at a place called "The Blockhouse". The complex was a series of perfectly-shaped, two-story squares with a pool in the middle. It was just short of a mile from campus.
This is the beginning of the tarantula mating season.
Often I see fishermen point at an area or spot and say, "It looks good over there!"
For as much time as I've spent around lodges, I had never been to one as a guest until this past weekend at the Clearwater Lodge on the Pit River east of Redding.
CHICAGO (AP) - There are few times a rookie quarterback looks good in comparison to Peyton Manning.
With only two dates remaining on the 2012 schedule for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Weekly Racing Series at the Stockton 99 Speedway, the action in last Saturday's program took on an added intensity. Not only were weekly bragging rights on the line, but teams in five divisions were battling for both the Tri-Holiday Classic Series and 2012 season championships.
So three college buddies and an Alaskan decide to play a round at the local golf course.
PARIS (AP) - It surely would be have been more useful for his sport if Tyler Hamilton hadn't waited until this week to tell us what he knows about doping in the Lance Armstrong era.
I always figured that writing an outdoor column had to be extremely easy. How hard can it be? You go fishing and then lie about it. Isn't that what all fishermen do anyway? Wrong. A couple nights ago, I kept wracking my brain, trying to get sufficiently inspired to write something worthy of you folks. Nothing seemed to work, not even wearing my fishing hat. Suddenly I had a brilliant idea! Instead of worrying about it, I'd go out in the fresh air and clear the cobwebs out of my mind by doing a little fishing.
Sometimes you put a foot down wrong and don't find out for a week or two that you actually dislocated a hip. That's how it's going to be if the NFL sticks with its plan to start the regular season with replacement referees - from mild annoyance to major pain to humongous regret. And all because the people in charge are too used to getting their way.
More often than not, hard work doesn't get rewarded.
Even though the racing season is coming to an end faster than a Kardashian marriage, there are still several events on tap at the local tracks in September.
As you may be aware, I have more than a passing interest in politics. Now you may be asking yourself "What's that have to do with fishing, hunting and other outdoor pursuits?" The answer is "Almost everything." Whether you want to legalize mountain lion hunting because there are too many lions and attacks on women and children are becoming common, or if you want more trout planted in your favorite stream, the answers you get are part of a political process.
It's funny how things have come full circle in my life.
