In search of salmon and authenticity

Since the friends that visit during the summer are not paying clients, I can afford certain liberties as I shuttle them around the island under the guise of providing an "authentic" experience.

Tactics for high water

Due to the extremely wet winter we had, most of the streams are running cold fast and extremely full. The recent hot spell has begun to melt the huge snowpack with a vengeance and the rivers are boiling. This was one of the wettest years on record and the melting snow is creating extremely dangerous conditions. Usually at this time of year the snow run off has peaked and stream levels have begun to recede to normal summertime levels. This year however nature may not be cooperating with your summer vacation plans. Major Sierra rivers are roaring with flows not ...

Keeping a fishing log can help you in many ways

I have been using a fishing log since the early 1970s and it really adds a completely new dimension to my angling experience. Recording stream conditions, weather patterns, and flies, lures, baits and techniques used can help improve your fishing. Jotting down unusual wildlife you spot, or interesting rock and mineral formations, notes on mining ruins, or Indian artifacts can help increase your enjoyment of your outdoor excursions.

Making a case for the medicinal hot dog

Hot dogs are synonymous with summer cuisine, and though there are plenty of hot dogs - gourmet dogs, foot-long dogs, ball park dogs, nitrate-free dogs, kosher dogs - I don't get too picky.

Father’s Day reflections

Several years ago, an auto accident claimed the life of a singer-songwriter named Harry Chapin. As is the case with many song writers, Chapin was actually a poet and philosopher who used music to expound upon the nature of life. Probably the most famous song that Harry Chapin wrote was titled "The Cats in the Cradle". It was about a fellow who was on his way up in the world and was too busy to spend time with his son. The young achiever was away on a business trip when his son was born. A few years later the son ...

Outdoor photos

I saw in the newspaper a while back where some fellow claimed to have found a treasure trove of old photographic plates taken by the famous photographer Ansel Adams. If authenticated, the photos could be worth literally millions of dollars. I recall meeting Ansel Adams several times at his shop in Yosemite Valley and I wish I had purchased some of his autographed photos. His black and white photo of the full moon over Half Dome might well be the most famous outdoor of all time.
