Fishing Report

Some of the old timers will tell you that the best way to teach someone how to swim is to push them right into the water. I definitely don't encourage anyone pushing someone into the water but I do see the benefit of not being afraid to try something different. Some of the best advice that I can give a fellow angler is to not be afraid to try something different. I can remember several times that I've been fishing with someone who was using a bait that I would have never tried, catch a fish while fishing ...

Arnett finished that 2015 season with a total of 106 points on 42 goals and 22 assists for the Lady Mustangs.

Opening Day Observations 2016

Opening Day finally arrived. Now all the trout fishing fanatics can get out there and beat the water to a froth in seek of their quarry. While the state sets the official date, I learned long ago that opening day is really set by The Good Lord.

Fishing Report

"Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after." (Henry David Thoreau) The longer that I've been fishing the more this quote has meant to me. Fishing has and will always be something that I seem to value more as time passes. I was reminded of this by my son last year. He asked to go fishing with me only. Our previous trips were with a friend or two. Admittedly, he's not as obsessed with fishing as I was at his age but he was obviously interested in spending ...
