Damselflies

For those of you who are grumpy because you do not ice fish, I have a warmer, more springy, summery blog post this Friday.  I often take a little break over lunch hour and watch some fishing videos.  Although I am not a fly-fishing purist by any means, I love watching fly-fishing videos like those that can be found here, Orvis Fly-Fishing Videos. One of the trailers I found there early this week really caught my attention: That is just …

Digital NEBRASKAland, November 2013

I mentioned last month that for the first time NEBRASKAland magazine was available in a digital format, “Check out the Digital NEBRASKAland”.  The November issue is now available digitally, NEBRASKAland, November 2013. Once again I have a somewhat selfish reason for bringing this to attention in my blog.  If you check out the November issue, you will find an excellent story by Jenny Nguyen, pages 23-28, about raising and stocking trout in Nebraska waters. I discovered something else in that …

Spring Break Trout

With teenagers, you take advantage of any time that they may have available and want to venture outdoors. I did just that with the youngest member of our family yesterday. That would be our 15 year-old Creighton Prep High School Freshman Noah (Wagner). It’s spring break week at Prep and Noah indicated to me that he might like to get out and do a little fishin’ at the Two Rivers SRA Trout Lake near Waterloo and then go visit Grandma. …

Trout Fishing Presentations That Will Work Anywhere

Some of you may recall a blog post I made about a year and a half ago about fishing with Doug Stange and filming a couple of segments for In-Fisherman TV, http://magazine.outdoornebraska.gov/2011/10/pinch/ .  I know many folks have seen those segments on In-Fisherman TV, http://www.in-fisherman.com/in-fisherman-tv/ , but if you have not, I recently discovered that they are posted on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/).  If you have not seen them yet, here they are: Those still are not the complete, full segments, almost …
