In spite of what you may think, I am not traveling the state all the time.  Like most folks, much of the time I am working out of the office, at Game & Parks headquarters …

The Good Ole Days. . .

Our video productions guy, Ralph Wall was sorting through some old tapes the other day when he found this gem, a “Fishing Forecast” for 1984!
