Well, I think the time has finally arrived.  Winter is over.  True, we may get some more snow, but the worst is, I think, behind us.  As i write this, the weather outside is bitterly cold, but it is supposed to last for only one day.

It’s that time of year for those of us of the angling persuasion start to blow the winter’s dust off our fishing tackle. In our eagerness to wet a line, many of us will head out after the not-so-elusive sucker. Anglers will be popping up along the banks of area rivers and streams before very long now, and, if all goes as planned, I’ll be among them.

I know that you are probably tired of hearing this, but what a brutal winter we’re having!  As I sit at the computer writing this, it’s snowing like mad out there.  This is, by the way, contrary to what we were told by the various television weather gurus.

Well, as we all know, we have had a brutal winter, and, as of this writing, it is still going on.  Those of us of the fishing persuasion can only look forward to sucker fishing, as soon as the ice goes out on the Allegheny.  As a realist, I know that there is probably a lot more to come.  But, since I am fishing minded, I hope that at least some kind of fishing comes along soon.
This week, let’s look a bit at an early opportunity to wet a line.

Let’s start things off this week with a little news story. The Clarion County Bassmasters are holding a Kids’ Fishing Seminar on Saturday, March 15th, from 10 AM - 5 PM at the Parker Fire Hall.  It is all free, and will feature education on fishing for different species, conservation and safety. There is also a free hot dog lunch, too! This is an excellent  chance to introduce kids to the fun of fishing, with no cost. For more information, contact Tom Jackson at 724-290-3900.

As many of us are painfully aware, it’s been really cold lately, which could spell some decent ice fishing. Since one of my New Year’s resolutions was to try to go ice fishing at least once, let’s look a bit at this somewhat brutal (on the angler) sport. I did it for many years in my younger days, but I haven’t gone ice fishing in many years now.

Well, here we are again. It’s the last column before Christmas. I can’t believe how fast the year has gone by. In fact, the older I get, the faster they go.

Well, it’s that time of year yet again.  It’s time once again  to look at Christmas shopping for the outdoor people on your list.    This is, in fact, one of my favorite columns of the whole year, so here goes.  Of course, we can’t cover all of the possibilities, or even most of them.  Hopefully, however, these ideas will be useful, or at least serve as a springboard for ideas of your own.

Wow! We’ve been having some really weird weather lately. As this is being written, it is warm, foggy, and there are bugs flying around. Tonight would be an ideal night for coon hunting. Although I have not done it for many years, I still have many fond memories of the sport. As a kid, it was the type of hunting I enjoyed (and did) the most. The night of this writing would be the perfect night.
