Brady will get another chance at legacy

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Tom Brady was one of the last ones out of the shower, perhaps hoping some extra hot water would help take the sting out of a crushing Super Bowl loss. In a nearly deserted New England Patriots locker room, he sat, wearily pulling on his boots, the pained look on his face never changing.

Of phones and Facebook

To understand fully the quandary I faced Saturday, I'll have to volunteer that the first time I remember my cell phone ringing while fishing was in 2007. I was trout fishing on the Klawock River back home, where reception is spotty at best. But the call made it through and lit up my pocket. Though I was fishing and I risked setting a precedent, I answered. After all, it was my mom and it was about dinner.

Outdoor therapy

Over the years I've been writing this column, I often refer to the fact that just being outdoors is good therapy for me.

Concealed carry ballot measure

Every so often there is a gun control measure put on the ballot for voters to consider. Most such measures are misguided efforts to reduce violent crime. The theory behind such restrictive gun measures seems to be based on the idea that if it's harder to obtain a gun, then violent crime rates will drop. Ironically, the exact opposite has been proven true time after time.

Face to face with skunking

I could feel it deep down in my fisherman soul. Apparently it showed on my face too.
