From writer’s block to Thanksgiving thoughts

When I first got the opportunity to write an outdoor column on a regular basis, I had two immediate thoughts: first, how lucky I was to be able to get paid to write about fishing and have it become tax deductible; and secondly how easy it would be to simply go out each week and then put something down on paper.

Expect the unexpected

I can't remember how many times over the past year that I've emphasized being prepared for the unexpected while out fishing. The unexpected happened to me a few years ago while out on the delta. Fishing out of a relative's fairly new boat we were surprised to hear the dreaded "click, click" sound when attempting to start his boat at the end of the day.

Pheasants for working stiffs

A century ago, almost all of our population was involved in agriculture. As a people, we grew up on the family farm, and were familiar with growing plants and animals for our livelihood.
