Don’t Judge a Rainbow by it’s Spots

I got drawn into an on-line discussion the other day about the variable colorations of rainbow trout.  The discussion got me thinking about the different colored rainbows I have caught from a variety of Nebraska waters.  I put together a little “collage” of some of them: Rainbow trout are a species that has been “domesticated”.  …

An Apology

I spend a lot of time on shorelines. The trash makes me sick.  Pretty much anytime, anywhere, all I have to do is glance around.  It is everywhere. I have to apologize. . . . I used to think the “litterbugs” were worse than pigs.  However, that is offensive to both bugs and pigs. I …
