GRAYLING, Mich. _ If you're among those who've decided to vacation in Michigan rather than make more expensive trips out of state, and you also happen to like trout fishing, you probably couldn't pick a better year. Rain and cool temperatures aren't the stuff of a tourism promoter's dreams, but they're just what the doctor ordered for making trout and trout anglers happy. It might have been late July, but the air temperature was 63 and the water 55 on a recent trip on the Manistee River...

By Keith Whitcomb Jr., Bennington Banner, Vt.

SALMON have taken advantage of summer flood conditions to move well upstream in both the River Usk and River Wye.

Other stretches of the Wye where salmon were landed included the Rocks, Gromain and Golden Mile beats. River Usk salmon have been going over the weir at Brecon and several fish have been caught at Talybont. Cardiff Reservoirs Fly...

The scenery was breathtaking, the fishing spectacular. And the people two Minnesota men encountered along their 7,000-mile, three-week trek in small floatplanes from Minnesota to Alaska and back were simply unforgettable. "The mountains, oceans and fishing was phenomenal, but I think the people is what we'll remember 20 or 30 years from now," said pilot Wolfgang Greiner, 52, of Bloomington. "We ran into open, generous people every day." Their itinerary would make an angler_or pilot_drool....

I learned the basics of line and tackle fishing from my late uncle Oscar Portuondo, first in Cuba and then in Miami, where my husband and I often joined him at his favorite fishing spots on the bay side of Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park or the old Rickenbacker Causeway Bridge. My uncle was a man of the tropical sea, but I know he would have found great joy in the sweet, cold-water bounty of the Delaware River Valley in Pennsylvania, where I own a small vacation home. This beautiful...

By Cumberland Times News, Md. Jul. 13--Hi Mike, This is in reference to the March 23 article "Wants trout answers." That was another appeal to Gov. O'Malley and or DNR Fisheries Division to address ongoing concerns. We questioned whether or not the 2006 Brook Trout Management Plan was made into a regulation using the proper regulatory processes. We the bait fisherman feel our rights and heritage have been infringed upon by this regulation taking away over 100 miles of bait fishing in...

By Michael Kilkie of the Jefferson Restaurant The more you learn about a subject, the less of a fear it will hold for you - and that goes for food and cooking too. If you build up knowledge about ingredients and techniques, when you cook and shop for food it will be easy and fun, not something to worry and panic about. You will be able to improvise and experiment - and won't have to stick rigidly to a recipe. You can buy something seasonal on the spur of the moment or try something...

Fish were left gasping for breath near Nailsworth when work on a dam caused the level of water in their stream to plummet. Trout in the water course at Inchbrook were left flailing on the mud said resident Richard Williams-Allen. "It was awful. It was just so bad," said Mr Williams-Allen who has been feeding the trout at the edge of his garden for the past 20 years. "I went out to feed them and found the water had dropped about 14in. There were probably 20 or 30 fish, all different...

"It's like the work that was done in Pueblo, but on a...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
