Family man making for a fail fishing blogger

Family man making for a fail fishing blogger

NORTH RIDGEVILLE, OH –  There are numerous websites that offer ‘professional’ advice to bloggers.  While I question some of the expert advice or even laugh at how the ‘professionals’ will contradict themselves, there is one thing they all agree on – it is never a good thing to go silent and not have new content posting at frequent or somewhat … Continue reading

Trout lottery and spring stocking dates

CASTALIA, OH – It’s that time of year again when the ODNR releases Rainbow Trout (10 to 14″) throughout Ohio.  This is a ‘put & take’ type fishery that can be a lot of fun.  I’ve actually managed some larger fish, possibly a few brood stock released or the inadvertent carry over that isn’t expected to happen.  Dates/locations … Continue reading

Fly Fishing Film Tour, Cleveland

Fly Fishing Film Tour, Cleveland

Some years ago, I was able to catch a Fly Fishing Film Tour in Maumee, Ohio.  It made a lasting impression and I always hoped that each year the funding or sponsorship would be found to keep it going.  I was excited to learn that the film tour was not only still being produced, but … Continue reading

Trout Derby at Wallace Lake

Trout Derby at Wallace Lake

I have to say NE Ohioans are a hardy ‘hearty’ bunch (Valentine’s Day pun intended).  A rather dire forecast of temps, wind, and snow did not discourage the masses from participation in an ice fishing trout derby to benefit the Cleveland Metroparks Fishing Fund.  Still somewhat new to NE Ohio and not knowing what to … Continue reading
