My 2013 Fishing Resolution

My 2013 Fishing Resolution
In 2012 I got out fishing roughly 75 times. That’s a very rough estimate and most likely on the low side, but for the sake of argument, I’ll say 75. I don’t keep records like I used to. When you live a two minute walk to a river and a ten minute drive will get... Read more »

I Tend not to Travel Very Much

And yet I feel like I travel all the time to go fishing or simply out wandering with my wife. I had to look it up on a map. It looks like 90 percent of the fishing and wandering I do all happens within 15 miles of my house. I’ve also covered very little of... Read more »

Been Getting Out, but no Time to Tell You About It

A Few Days of Creek Fishing

You’ve probably noticed I never talk about the nuts and bolts of fishing. I guess that would be the hook and tackle (hooks and tackle?) of fishing. Whatever it’s called, I don’t do it. Twelve or so years ago I gave it a try, but noticed that I was constantly repeating myself. That happened in... Read more »

The river had been looking good…

I was able to get out fishing on Friday and at 6:30 PM I found myself wading the Fox River in North Aurora. The last few hours of the day are my favorite time to be in the water. If I fished till dark, I would have over two hours of fishing under my belt.... Read more »

Where There's a Will, There's a Way

I have no choice but to go fishing as often as possible. I’ll do whatever I have to do to squeeze in a couple of hours on any given day. If you go through what I’ve written about for the past month, plus go to my original blog and do some reading, the reasons become... Read more »
