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.

A short while ago, my daughter came from the East Coast with my grandkids to visit for awhile. She asked me if I would take her and the grandkids out to the woods along the river to pick rose hips.

Sometimes we put unreasonable valuation on an experience or project what does not yet, or will never exist.
Of all those penalized in baseball's biggest doping scandal, at least Nelson Cruz had a good story to tell.
A week ago, while driving along I-5 south of Sacramento, I spotted a pair of coyotes and several wild turkeys in the Stone Lake/Beach Lake wildlife preserve. By combining government owned lands with private lands using either conservation easements or leases, the combined area of the preserve totals over 17,000 acres.

Several decades ago I was hunting bears in the Sierra. It was dusk and I walked down a dusty dirt road looking for bear tracks. After about an hour, I turned around and began walking back to my camp. Looking at my tracks in the dusty road, I discovered mountain lion tracks right over the top of my footprints! A lion had tracked me for over two miles. I had no clue he was there. I guarantee you that will make the hair on your neck stand up! Mountain lions are like tan ghosts, you never see them until its ...
Oh, Roger, you still don't get it.
Every year, there are new fishing products that come out and quickly become the hot item.
Bulldogs don't belong in a catbird seat, so East Union defensive coordinator Jason Stock's decision to leave the press box should come as no surprise.
