So, I have a Google Alert setup for “Fly Tying” or “Fly Pattern”; which delivers the descriptions of the latests flies to hit the internet.  What a wonderful diversion from Viagra ads, bill reminders, and action items from the boss.
Google Alerts are not foolproof, however. Many sites are picked up that have nothing to do [...]

That is no way to treat a lady

May 15th, 2009 · No Comments

Like ships and storms, do we refer to geysers with female pronouns? Regardless, this is no way to treat Old Faithful. These idiots are trying to adjust the PH balance of the venerable geyser.

April 22nd, 2009 · No Comments

Being a Lacrosse dad is having its benefits. We recently played a team with orange uniforms. Apparently, these girls are in on the Girl’s Secret.

One of these orange warriors is also a litter-bug. Well, at least not too careful where her Sporty Girl Foam Wrap falls off.

Brownlining, now urban hunting

April 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

Last week, the news was about brownlining, urban fly fishing for the less than noble species of fish.  This week, we have urban hunting.
$70 for a trap, a bowl of cat food, a .22:  mmmm, fresh raccoon.  Remember to leave the paw on, so people don’t confuse it with any other fur-bearers that may be [...]

Free drift boat

February 24th, 2009 · No Comments

Here is a free drift boat, ready to sneak up on those skittish spring creek trout.

Contact the US Navy. It’s free for pickup in Rhode Island. Unfortunately, my tow vehicle isn’t up to it at the moment.
