Fishing

It's been a while since I've been fishing. I was reminded of that on Sunday when my stepdad had his 71st birthday. It had dawned on him that here in Missouri, he no longer needs a fishing license because of his age. It'll be a long while before I get to that point, but it reminded me that it's ...

Summer Adventures

Since the time I was a kid, poison ivy rashes and bug bites have plagued me during the summer months. Poison ivy rashes can lead to several days of misery and make a person gun-shy of the outdoors. The same can be said of tick bites, mosquito bites, and chigger bites. I remember well the time I ...

Fishing for Fun Is a Relaxing Sport

First fishing adventuresAs the first rays of summer dawn filtered through the trees near the Rocky Mountain town where I spent most of my childhood, almost every morning I was out the back door and on my way to my favorite fishing creek with beaver ponds or the rushing river just beyond. I ...

Catching Fish

In my hometown of Beaverton, Michigan, there’s a reservoir called Ross Lake. This lake and the river below the dam are well-known for the monster carp that inhabit its waters. It is said that the largest carp of this species caught in the world — 114 inches long — was caught there ...

Open Session September/October 2010

Loved Baby ChicksThe photograph on the cover of your May/June issue reminded me of when I was a child and would ride to town with my mom in our 1936 International pickup to get boxes of baby chicks. Once we got them home, we would teach them to drink by dipping their little beaks in a bowl of ...
