Manteca’s Strmiska edged out in Enduro finale

Although the bulk of the 2011 Stockton 99 Speedway champions had been previously determined, there was still a bit of unfinished business to take care of at the fabled ¼-mile last Saturday night.

A shameless plug for beloved 49th state

They are what they eat

Corn-fed was a prison guard. In all my life I have never seen a better convergence of a person, a name and an occupation. Corn-fed was built very much like a steer that stood on two legs; he was huge. In his occupation as a prison guard his size was a great asset. The inmates did what he told them to do and didn't give him any trouble. It was as if he was made for the job.

Visit to old fishing spot brings back memories

This past weekend while attending a friend's wedding, I was taken back to the neighborhood where I grew up.

No bad blood, just bad golf

There was a time when simply kicking rocks into puddles could turn into a vicious competition ending in an altercation, but since my brother Mark has spent the better half of the last decade with the Navy we have proven our parents correct with regards to all that "one day you will appreciate each other" type stuff.

Iron kettle

Oftentimes when you're out afield, you happen across things that may have no bearing upon hunting or fishing but which enhance the overall outdoor experience. The iron kettle is a perfect example. For decades my Dad and I fished a particular stretch of stream that had great fishing largely because it was difficult to get to. We walked down a trail that followed the main river for 2 miles and then fished up a tributary creek about 4 miles to an old immigrant road that was abandoned in 1858. We walked back 4 more miles along the route of ...

Cast from the past: Old lures may do the trick

As a beginning fisherman I only had one or two lures I was confident in and used them regardless of the weather or time of year.

It's always a good idea to check the weather before a trip to the mountains this time of year, so I did.

Blue sky classrooms

It seems as though the public schools get a lot of criticism these days, but then I'd be willing to bet that people have been complaining about schools as long as schools have existed. Certainly, some of the criticism of schools is warranted and schools could use improvement. There is, however, a good argument to be made that that we are asking our schools and their administrators and teachers to teach things that we, as parents, should be teaching to our children ourselves. Quite honestly, I'm not qualified to teach my children chemistry, music, or computer science. By ...

Traditional nets still reliable despite drawbacks

Over the years, I have seen several different fishing nets being marketed to fishermen. One challenge that comes with netting fish has always been keeping the hooks from snagging themselves within the netting material. At the request of anglers, rubber nets were made, and for a while they were the wave of the future when it came to nets.

Bamboo bonanza

Over the past couple of decades, I have collected antique bamboo fly rods. Contrary to popular belief, not all bamboo rods are valuable. Prior to World War 2, almost all rods were made of split bamboo. Some were excellent and costly, some were good medium priced rods, and some were cheap junk. South Bend, Heddon, and Montague were all rods that were comparable to Fords or Chevrolets. They were good serviceable rods manufactured and priced to sell to the multitudes. Lousy rods were usually made in Japan and carried no manufacturer's name at all, while great rods were individually ...

Wild food

These days it seems that lots of folks are concentrating on eating healthier foods. It seems like everywhere you look there are ads for organic beef, milk and vegetables. Heck, I'm gonna start looking for organic bourbon. You can't be too careful. Seriously, though, there are undoubtedly significant benefits to eating healthier foods. One source of healthy, organic food is wild food. Remember Ewell Gibbons? He was the author of a best seller entitled 'Stalking the Wild Asparagus' that encouraged folks to go out into the wild and take advantage of the abundance of wild plants that our ...
