Patience a virtue, but coffee helps

The first fishing advice I ever received was to be patient.

The joy of cheap dreams

If I can't be on the Thorne River, I'd take the Upper Sacramento, McCloud or Pit. If I can't be on any of those, or outdoors period, the next best place is to be at the annual Sportsman's Expo in Sacramento.

Cures for cabin fever January 2013

Some folks think that there is no such thing as Cabin Fever. They are dead wrong. If Alferd Packer was still around, they could ask him about it. Good old Alferd (that's really how he spelled his name) was the noted cannibal who ate several of his companions after being trapped with them while snowbound in Colorado in 1874.

The world’s best fly

A short while ago, I wrote a column about which rifle cartridge I considered as the best all-around caliber. Some of you agreed with me and some did not. It was a fun exercise in part because it gets people thinking about why they prefer one gun over another.

It’s not really about the fishing, is it?

Facebook tried to tell me what my 20 biggest moments were in the past year, but it was close only when I considered the list was drafted by a program made by people who don't know me. Technology thinks my year can be reduced to pictures and subsequent "like" clicks from "friends". Impossible.

Handicapped and the outdoors

Like a lot of subjects, my views regarding being handicapped and participating in outdoor activities have evolved over the years. Probably the single biggest factor in my awakening to the opportunities in the outdoors for those with handicaps was when I met Arvel Gipson. Old Arv had fallen off a high transmission line and broken his back, which left him using crutches for the rest of his life. The odd thing was, Arvel refused to let his handicap stop his enjoyment of the outdoors.
