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 »

Northern Illinois Hunting and Fishing Days, September 24 and 25

This coming weekend, September 24 and 25, is the annual Northern Illinois Hunting and Fishing Days at Silver Springs State Park. I’ve been going to this event every year for well over a decade and I highly recommend it. Don’t let the name fool you, it’s not all about hunting and fishing. There are plenty... 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 »

This Outing would be a Fishing Marathon

I have fishing outings that I refer to as Death Marches and others as Marathons. I actually make a distinction between the two even though when someone tags along, they can’t tell the difference. There are sections of the Fox River that are just tough to wade. Doesn’t matter how many times I’ve wandered down... 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 »

I Went Fishing, And Now I Am Going To Tell You About It

Actually, not up for too many words today. Besides, I’ve been told that nobody reads blogs on the weekend and that I shouldn’t bother wasting my time putting up posts. But I have time now. I’ve got out fishing on the Fox River 4 times in the last week. 2 of those at sunset and... Read more »

It's Lunch Time my Friend 8.24.11

Why, look at that, it is almost lunch time. The summer doldrums seem to be coming to an end. In the past week all the writers have come back to life and have been typing away like crazy. Others have been out taking picture of damn near everything. This is a tough one. We’ll start... Read more »

A Rare Morning of Fishing

There’s a good chance that on any given day at four in the morning, I’m awake. This started when I was a kid and around 5 decades later, I don’t give it much thought anymore. This used to be the time I would crawl out of bed and go fishing. Why lay there staring at... Read more »

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

Time is at a premium lately. A new job and a long commute eats up 12 hours of my day. By the time I’m back at home, there’s things to do. Cook something to eat, even if it sucks it will be somewhat edible. Laundry to do, other things around the house that have been... Read more »
