Fishing Report

One of my first bait casting reels cost me less than $50 back in the early '80s. As time went on, the price of bait casting reels continued to rise. I'm guessing it was in the early '90s when the prices of a mid- to high-quality bait casting reel had a price tag of $100. Today, a reel of the same quality, sells for $200.

NHRA Thunders Into The Wine Country Of Sonoma

The 30th annual NHRA Toyota Sonoma Nationals featured several surprises. The biggest was Robert Hight in Funny Car. Driving his "California Highway Patrol" tribute Chevy Camaro, Hight set the drag racing world on its ears in the second round of qualifying Friday night. He uncorked an amazing 3.807 second run at 339.87 mph, resetting the NHRA speed record with the fastest run ever done in either Top Fuel or Funny Car, even when these cars actually ran a quarter-mile distance (this has been shortened to 1000 feet for safety, since 2008). This performance would stand as the #1 ...
