In the last few weeks, I have read news articles about a possible mountain lion sighting in the community of Mountain House, west of Tracy, about a moose whose antlers were caught in a backyard swing set in northern Utah, and about a Boy Scout leader who was attacked by a rabid beaver while swimming in New York State.
I received an email this week asking me to remind everyone to "take a kid fishing."
I will never be in the Olympics. I have accepted this fact. If I was allowed arm-floats and fins, I'd be drowned by any woman water polo player before you could say, "exclusion." If was strapped to a 200-horsepower Evinrude, I'd end up like Wile E. Coyote in the side of the pool and still lose to Michael Phelps. If I had a ...
It seems that as each year passes our daily lives get more hectic and complicated. Along with such increased pressures, it becomes increasingly important for me to find ways to relieve the pressure. Heck, we probably all need to get away from it all slow down our pace, and take the time to relax, contemplate, and recharge our batteries. I have found nothing more relaxing than floatfishing our valley rivers.
LONDON (AP) - They collected their rewards half a world away, in front of a crowd packed with enough big shots to rival the shine of the gold hanging from their necks.
I was reminded of the first time I was given an open-book test this past weekend while out fishing Clark Fork.
I approached from down river. Behind a mess of branches twisted next to a stump, a few trout were taking flies off the surface of the slow-moving Stanislaus River. It was an easy cast, but one that had to be precise. Sierra Nevada trout don't like to see thick, green fly line three inches above their heads. No trout does for that matter. <p class="Body" align="left" style="text-align: ...
LONDON (AP) - There are times when history only becomes clear with hindsight and others - rarer, more goose-bumpy - when you actually feel it being made. Oscar Pistorius revolutionizing our notions of what is possible with every clink, clink of his prosthetic legs on the London Olympic running track was one such moment.
LONDON (AP) - It took him longer to get down on both knees and kiss the track than it did to glide over the most important 100 meters of it.
As the summer break is winding down it seems like a lot of people, including myself, are attempting to get in one last camping trip before the new school year begins.
I just read a press release from Colt Defense LLC announcing that The United States Marine Corps Special Operations Command is placing an order with Colt for up to 12,000 Colt 1911 in 45 ACP caliber. The order will also include spares as well as logistical support. The Colt press release called the Close Quarters Battle Pistol (QCBP) "a direct descendant of the iconic Colt M1911 adopted ...
With the end to my summer break rapidly approaching; my fishing time will definitely have to be scaled back.
The great philosopher and former regional manager Michael Scott once said, "I'm not superstitious, but I'm a little stitious"
Banning Penn State from bowl games for four years won't bring back the innocence Jerry Sandusky took from who knows how many young boys. Taking football scholarships away and vacating wins over the past 14 years will do nothing to help them heal.
Eric Holmes, driver of the No. 20 NAPA AUTO PARTS Toyota, made history at Evergreen Speedway last Saturday by winning the NAPA AUTO PARTS "150" to give team owner Bill McAnally his 50th career win.
When working out an itinerary for mom's retirement trip to Fairbanks and surrounding areas, I had to fit in a float on the Chena River for Arctic grayling. Naturally, a very late ice break up and torrential rains had the Chena swollen to the point the guide called to say the float was in serious jeopardy. I had never fished the area I had no clue what I'd do if the float didn't happen. If the Chena was blown out, then everything else might be unfishable too.
Five years ago I purchased a 75-gallon fish tank from someone selling it on Craigslist.
Editor's note: Only a portion of Lund's column ran in Wednesday's Bulletin. Here it is in its entirety.
In January, the outdoor itinerary for summer is so ambitious - a schedule of old haunts with dreams of adventures in new spots. But when fall comes, what you didn't get to sometimes outnumbers what you did.
The weather has been uncharacteristic for the month of May - lots of wind and cooler temperatures for this time of year.
I know it's summer and I should sleep in, but when you're solar-powered and the sun floods into your room your body doesn't care if it's 4:18.
There are many ways to catch a fish. Yesterday while doing some grocery shopping I ran into my high school physical education teacher, coach Gebhart. He reminded me of a way of catching fish that I've never really gotten into. Coach Gebhart likes to fly fish just as much as he likes to golf. I have a fly rod, which is 27 years old and has sat collecting dust for the past 20 years. I ...
The ball was over-inflated and under-used, but that wasn't the real issue.
