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 »

So, Where ya Been?

Back in February I put up a post here on ChicagoNow and then promptly let the powers that be know that I was done. A week later I quit writing for a monthly Illinois outdoor magazine. Around that time I told Dale Bowman, outdoor writer for the Chicago Sun Times, that I was done sending... Read more »

Almost like those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer

Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer My usual routine is to get 4 or 5 solid hours of sleep a night, then lay there till I have to get up to go do whatever it is I’m supposed to go do on any given day. Or piss like a race horse. Which ever comes... Read more »

Every Picture Tells a Story, Don't it?

Never did like that song much, but the premise is hard to argue with. Got in and along the Fox River today. Lots of color, but I wouldn’t say it’s peak color. An awful lot of leaves missing and falling and floating down the river. Might have made the fishing tougher than it needed to... Read more »

It's looking like this weekend will be as perfect as it gets

A little over a month ago, I put up a post: Seems Like a Perfect Weekend for Paddling Down a River It sure looks like another one is coming up this weekend. The water level on the Fox River is going to be perfect. The long range forecast is calling for perfect weather. The fall... Read more »

This Could be Good

I normally don’t pay any attention to anything the Republican Party has to say or offer. I’m at the national average on income level and since turning 50 five years ago, I’m lucky to be struggling to make that. Nobody ever said that after 50 you’d become worthless to the job market. Considering these things,... Read more »

The end of summer and the Autumnal Equinox, it's time to get out.

No, I’m not going to write much about either of those, I think, other than the Autumnal Equinox happened on Friday, September 23rd. I guess this is more of a fishing report, we’ll see where it goes. To celebrate the Autumnal Equinox, us pagans celebrate things like this, I went fishing, drank three beers one... Read more »

Fish the Fox, it's what I do.

And for the past 3 days I’ve been doing it fairly well. Clients continue to blow deadlines, which leaves me with nothing to do. That’s a good thing. This time of year I feel an almost desperate need to be outside. The short days and low angle of the sun triggers everything to start dying... Read more »

A Mini Marathon Fishing Trip

Not much in the mood for sitting here typing and thinking of words, so I’ll keep this less wordy than usual, a few pictures and be done with it. Got the week off because the client has so thoroughly screwed the schedule, may as well keep squeezing in some fishing. Tuesday afternoon seemed like a... Read more »
