800px-Racoon_crossing_road

My older cousin Robin often jokes that he taught me everything I know. He is right, at least in part. The problem is some of the things he taught me are not of much use.  I was reminded of one wise gem I learned from him when I saw several raccoons run across the road …

The Agony

The Agony

Broke a fish off this week.  It does not happen often, last one I can remember was a BIG fish a couple years ago.  Fought that fish for twenty minutes, could feel it going deep, line rubbing on something.  Knew it was not going to end well. This time I set the hook, good fish.  …

Tomorrow, September 29, is National Hunting and Fishing Day.  Governor Ricketts signed a proclamation this week recognizing that here in Nebraska. I have always thought that a national hunting and fishing day is especially appropriate for Nebraska because we have some great opportunities for a variety of fish and game.  We are the mixed bag …
