Fishing Report

Watch out for the duck hunters, duck hunting season has begun. What's different than years past is that there are very few places locally to safely launch a boat anymore, making the Delta the only option for a lot of boaters and duck hunters. This of course has caused an increase in boat traffic and if you were to ask a duck hunter what they hate the most about hunting the Delta, they would surely say the boat traffic. During my last outing as I was navigating through a foggy stretch of water, I heard four gun shots. I ...

Sorry, No Postcards

In Oregon, they say, it rains nearly every day and the residents have webbed feet to prove it. That's an exaggeration. I've just returned from a week's vacation in Oregon and can testify the overcast sky cleared by noon on five days out of seven and the locals do not have skin between their toes like ducks.

The temperatures were in the low 70s and balmy by my reckoning. The kind of summer weather I was used to while growing up in England.

Heed Cell Phone Laws

In July of 2008, California passed California Vehicle Code section 23123(a) that prohibits a driver from talking on a cell phone without the use of a hands free device in a motor vehicle on a highway (Roadway). This California Vehicle Code section was written in an attempt to reduce the number of traffic collisions on the roadway by allowing the driver to keep both hands on the steering wheel and focus his/her attention on the roadway. There are of course, several exceptions to this law that allow you to use your cell phone while driving, calling 911, emergency ...
