I just got back from a duck hunting trip to Arkansas and learned
quality waders are a must. I was warm for the duration of the hunt,
almost to warm at times. A few of my hunting buddies came home and
went straight to Bass Pro Shops to purchase a new pair waders. Why
you might ask? Because warm and...
The outdoor community has a lot of seasons; hunting season, fishing
season, camping season and so on. However there is one we always
forget- Wedding Season. A season of fittings of tuxes and wedding
dresses, flowers being ordered, catering being booked, photographer

My wife and I are getting ready to take a trip north for a little

Water temperatures are approaching the 60’s and the fish are very
active. All species of fish are feeding up, spawning, or getting
ready to do so. The water levels on the lake have almost returned
to normal and some of the “old spots” are producing. All of the
Grass beds that were above the water...
I can still remember the first film tour I attended and to this
day, the screaming runs, the acrobatic leaps, and the near misses
are a big reason why my fly angling bucket list continues to grow
by leaps and bounds. The brutish power of the Giant Trevally,
the bone crushing strike of a Golden...
A recent trip to south Florida re-emphasized the fact that fishing
is fishing and catching is another thing entirely, and to actually
land the fish we seek, a lot of stars have to align just
perfectly. We may get a world class specimen if we throw in a
bit of skill and a healthy dose of luck but...
Lake Michigan’s ecosystem is rapidly changing annually. The
