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. In wet years when there is a huge snow pack the real opening day may well be the middle of June, while in drought years the first of May might be a realistic opening date. In any event, trout season has begun and we can begin our search for our wary quarry in ...

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.

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 ...

Fishing Report

There's an old saying that "one man's junk is another man's treasure." What I've learned over the years of accumulating fishing tackle is that the saying is definitely true when it comes to fishing equipment. I recently parted with some fishing rods that I no longer use. I had actually forgotten that I had them until a friend called me and asked whether or not I had any fishing rods that I would be willing to sell. It was nice getting a little of the money back that I had spent on the rods and at ...
