Vermont and the last of Irene, for now, maybe.

Ken Hall, aka Quill Gordon of The View From Fish in a Barrel Pond, has put up what he says is his last post about the aftermath of Irene. For now, maybe. He has a lot of pictures to go through and a long winter ahead of him. I think a paragraph from his most... Read more »

Sometimes I Just Want to go Fishing

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 »

A Break from the Heat

I’ve always enjoyed the reprieve of a strong summer cold front blowing through. Within 24 hours a string of sweaty, sultry days becomes more reminiscent of early fall. The sky becomes crisp and clear and the heat haze disappears to sharpen the edges and colors of the trees. Sitting outside in the evening after the... Read more »
