My own version of Injun Summer

This post first went up on November 14, 2010 and was called I went for a walk along the Fox River on Sunday… It’s that time of year again and I thought I might make this post my own tradition, put it up every year about now. Let it serve as a warning to others... Read more »

The Fall Colors are Changing Fast

Down Yorkville way, much faster than I thought they would. Every day there’s more yellow, more orange, more red and considerably less green. If this coming weekend isn’t the peak of the fall colors, it will be close enough. Wait another week and you could miss it. My last two posts were all about different... Read more »

More Things to do, Places to go

With the coming of the fall season, my last post was about Things to do, Places to go that are close to the Chicago area. This one branches out further, but there are still more things to do and places to go in the northern third of Illinois. If you live in or near Chicago,... Read more »

This is the third time I’m referencing this post. The first time I put it up was August of 2011.

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.
