Ice fishermen are just different. They can’t wait to drag an old sled full of tilts, ice chippers, frisky shiners the bait guy swore were “jumbos” and frigid pickle buckets out to the middle of a wind-swept lake, drill some holes and set up shop for a good day. They are perfectly happy shuffling around for hours, waiting for a flag, playing some hockey with the kids or chit-chatting about the fish they caught last year. What’s more, ice fishermen have their own fashion sense.Read More

Thanksgiving presented a multitude of options for sportsmen and even for those a bit more, well, indoorsy. Those in the know caught carp, perch, tautog and stripers while the patient sat in tree stands to take the buck for which they’ve waited years. A few went couch slouching, telling fish stories well past nap time, even when you knew the last boat they handled was full of gravy.Read More

Our landscapes are changing quickly. By some reckoning, we asked for it. We pulled a lever for change in Washington and we got it.
The landscape of change became a whole lot larger too. The change people demanded to strengthen some parts of our great country is eroding others, like the environment and our access to it. By the time we stop arguing, resources we need and love may be eviscerated by needs and wants driven by greed and short-sighted investment. These are sociologist Robert Mertonhese’s “unintended consequences.”Read More

Pheasant season is a welcomed, classic celebration of fall. In cut corn fields we walk for hours, stepping over sharp stubs trimmed for silage, pushing past bending brown stalks left for cover. We work brush lots thinned by frost and hungry deer, with briars tearing at our knees, hoping to hear quick cackles before putting up ringneck roosters. Pheasant season means hunters working with their beautiful dogs, both happy as they might ever be.Read More

Parading underneath the stars of Watch Hill, mirroring walkers and gawkers along Narragansett’s sea wall, challenging shore casters beneath Providence’s hurricane barrier or taking a tour of Newport’s cliff walk, albies were hanging tight and lots of guys were catching them while others were just reading reports of the former, wondering where they went wrong. Considering how daytime temperatures have been reasonable for the end of Fall…Read More

The Wildlife Rehabilitators Association of Rhode Island came to the rescue of a Barred owl entangled in fishing line and hanging from a Warwick tree. Being nocturnal, there’s no telling how long that animal had been stuck there. With assistance from Warwick’s police, fire and animal control officers Amy Violet and Heather Razza, the owl was freed and brought to the Association’s Wildlife Clinic in Saunderstown. After some rest and unruffling of its feathers, the owl should be good to go and will be set free.

He’s a veteran, a fireman, a husband, a relentless kayak fisherman and a rock solid friend who calls some lucky people, “brother.” Brian’s had some intel on schools of early morning albies and called in fishing partner Tom Adams. The two launched kayaks at dawn, understanding that albies would be moving south soon so every day on the water was precious. Some situations call for fishing solo but more often, being on the water with a friend is the best experience. Tom’s another guy who lives outdoors with a big, natural smile to prove it.Read More

Hurricane season means months of seaside homeowner angst, beaches wiped clean, low pressure and high surf but what does all that mean for fishing?

It feels dynamite.
You can cast for twenty minutes, slam the rod against the gunwales, curse a blue streak or swear you hate fishing. You can pack so many jigs and snax into a plastic box that the lid cracks and cracks again before you finally give up trying to push it shut. It’s a hit like dynamite.Read More

Last year, I had the pleasure to meet Mike Lee, a small business owner from Maine who was promoting his fishing products at an outdoor writers meeting. He’s an engaging guy and we had much in common. A few days ago, we talked for a very long time about his company, family, lures, ambitions and hopes for this new year. Mike has vision.Read More
