Fishing Report

Every year, there are new fishing products that come out that quickly become the hot item. Back in the mid to late 80's, it was the Salt and Pepper Grub. They couldn't make them fast enough. Now, I don't know anyone that uses them. I've always wondered how something that was so effective in years past can lose its effectiveness. Most anglers will tell you that the fish have become conditioned to that particular bait and can no longer be fooled by that bait. My response to that argument is that there are very few if ...

State’s Cleanup Day Yields Tons Of Trash

Californians turned out by the tens of thousands on Sept. 20 to lend their hands in support of clean beaches and inland waterways at the 30th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day.

Fishing Report

One of the most difficult things I've had to deal with since purchasing a new boat has been rigging the boat. In the past, I've purchased used boats that were already rigged up the way I wanted. All I had to do was replace those items that broke as time went on. I've had my current boat for about five months and don't believe I'll have it fully rigged for another year or two. There are just too many options and some of those options are pretty expensive. New boats, unlike cars, come pretty standard ...

Valley Home News Week of September 17, 2014

Last week we stopped what we were doing to remember those lives lost on September 11, 2001. A horrible tragedy that changed our world forever. Words cannot express the sadness and overwhelming anger that touched each one of us during one of our country's darkest hours. We cannot change the events of that day, but we can remember those lost and the many public servants who died trying to save them. The date that marks this sad day has passed and as we look toward a brighter future, we honor those who continue to serve our nation's people ...
