I usually donate stuff like that to a local Trout Unlimited chapter so they can sell it at annual flea markets or use it or a prize at fund-raising banquets, etc. You get a minor tax write off. I...

re: Stolen kayak

I always worry a bit when my kayaks are on my roof rack and if I should get those anti-theft straps or cables from Thule, etc. to help deter thieves. There are a couple gear swaps I saw posted on FB...

There's a few forms of synthetic quill body materials out there that does not break as easily as the natural when wrapping around the hook. No stripping and pre-soak required either. I'm tying up...

re: Poachers

It's weird, and probably jinxing myself, that I've NEVER been asked for my fishing license in NY or CT since I had to get one as a teenager(~40 years). I've seen ECO's drive right by me when I'm...

My brother has a pair of Patagonia's that are over 17 years old now. I know this because he bought them shortly before my son was born. He's had to seal a couple small leaks, probably from thorns...

Hiking pants

re: 1000 pointer

"Keep your booger hook off the bang switch" - have not heard that in a while. You must be an Army or Marine vet!

Paddled the Brown's Tract Inlet off Racquette Lake on Sat 10/21. It was 71 degrees and the lake itself was pretty calm and still, hardly any boats at all.
Met only one canoe coming in from other...

Several years ago, some motorcyclist nearly hit a moose on the Taconic Parkway SE of the Capital District. Apparently had just enough time to dump his bike and slide under it. Moose go wherever...
