For those of us who have been fishing a while, I'm sure we've all heard the term 'turnover' used.
It's a little uncomfortable writing about myself sometimes.
The Elbow Creek stretch of the Mokelumne is a microcosm of the Sierra Nevada trout streams. It is a roadless stretch of water that gets very little fishing pressure and it offers the angler tumbling brook trout water, meandering meadow stretches with wary browns, and willow lined runs with feisty rainbows. You can use your nymphs and wooly worms for the brookie water, your classic dry patterns on the rainbow runs, and splash noisy hopper flies in the grassy meadows.
Sometimes even I am left wondering what I did wrong after an unproductive day of fishing.

I always figured that writing an outdoor column had to be extremely easy. How hard can it be? You go fishing and then lie about it. Isn't that what all fishermen do anyway? Wrong. A couple nights ago, I kept wracking my brain, trying to get sufficiently inspired to write something worthy of you folks. Nothing seemed to work, not even wearing my fishing hat. Suddenly I had a brilliant idea! Instead of worrying about it, I'd go out in the fresh air and clear the cobwebs out of my mind by doing a little fishing.
Sometimes you put a foot down wrong and don't find out for a week or two that you actually dislocated a hip. That's how it's going to be if the NFL sticks with its plan to start the regular season with replacement referees - from mild annoyance to major pain to humongous regret.
