Over lunch the other day, some friends amd I were discussing the best way to teach a beginner to shoot. We found ourselves in unanimous agreement that the best firearm to learn to shoot with is the 22 caliber single shot rifle with traditional iron sights. There are a host of 22 s out there ranging from the simple single shot model to tube fed 22s, lever action saddle guns, slide action gallery guns and the ubiquitous Ruger rotary action 10-22. All can be fine guns and all have their strong points. For my money however, nothing is better than ...
This time of the year is magical on the Delta.
We weren't in much of a hurry Saturday, so we stood at the tailgate of Nate's truck and retold the highlights of seven years worth of fly fishing trips. Whenever we've been together lately it's been like this. Our memories are told with increased vigor and embellishment as my move nears.
I continue to be amazed at how far technology has advanced and its impact on fishing.
Outside of fishing trips, I get column ideas from everywhere.
Not long ago I heard a story about a school teacher in Montana who asked students on a quiz to name the four seasons. The most common answer she got was Trout Season, Deer Season, Elk Season, and Duck Season. That's sort of the way my mind works too. Opening Day of both deer season and bear season for the Sierra Nevada Mountains is Saturday, Sept. 28. Deer season runs six weeks until Nov. 3, while bear season lasts until Dec. 29.
Fishing and football have been two of my deepest passions since I was a youngster.
We knew Sierra's Bryson Sanders would be one of quarterback Jake Pruitt's favorite targets.

With the summer-like conditions we've been having lately, the inexperienced angler tends to believe that the fishing conditions are the same as the summer. After all, the days are just as hot and the waterways are as busy as any other summer day.
When I was chastised for wearing a Simms Fishing Products hat while deer hunting this summer, my hunting buddy, who will remain nameless, didn't mention the trout silhouette on the front.
Labor Day weekend is an exciting time for most anglers.
Dad would have turned 63 on Saturday.
I watched the evening news the other day and saw where a group of local motorcycle enthusiasts were having a Sunday ride to raise money for charity. Despite the bad press that motorcyclists occasionally suffer from, I have found them to generally be a compassionate, caring group of people. My brother, Chris, rode a Harley until his death and it seemed that his motorcycle club was always raising money for kids or veterans. The motorcycle folks are all right. I wonder though, if they are aware of the discriminatory policy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation when it comes to granting kids ...
It's already getting darker earlier in the day and getting cooler at night, meaning that fall weather is closer than most people may think it is.
He had to be the hero.
