Life through Matt's eyes

When I was young, around kindergarten age, my family went to visit my grandparents for a couple days. They have lots of property and a big lake in the backyard stocked with bass, bream, crappie, and some catfish. My dad took my brother and I out back and we walked down the hill to the […]

Reel Things

I am proud of the fact that my son started catching fish on his own at the age of 2.  It was two months before his 3rd birthday and we were visiting family in the town where I was raised.  We headed to the lake with a couple rods and a can of nightcrawlers and sat down […]

Writers Envy

I grew up with Zebco 202’s and caught quite a few bluegill, shiner, and catfish with Billy and Eddie in the pond next door. I even snagged a gator once but that was nothing compared to the nasty snapping turtle that tried to take his wrath out on my fingers. But I always preferred my […]

Daily Spiritual Principle - one addict's thoughts

One of the gifts Shaun received this year was a fishing rod and reel. In fact, he received two of them, one for him, and one for me. Fishing has never been my strong suit. Though I have fished off and on throughout my life, like so many things I have attempted, I lack the […]

Artist Nate Wilson sent us a beautiful giclee print of this Brook Trout. Probably one of my all time favorite fish to chase in the PA mountainside all year round. Nate paints from Lockhaven Pa and below you will find a little bit about him in his own words. “I grew up along the banks […]

I recently got the chance to pick up a brand new fishing pole for my collection this week, and let me tell you it is definitely unique. Now to start off I usually only go for spin-cast fishing rods when I shop at a fishing store, but this fishing rod was just way too neat […]

Porch Thinkin'

Until my fourteenth birthday, I only knew two men who golfed: Dick Powell and Grady Sanford. Prior to that, summer Sunday afternoons consisted of fishing. In the space between church meetings, I’d race through Jeff Sanford’s house to grab a Zebco reel and see Mr. Sanford sitting with his feet up intently listening as commentators […]

That impulse buying of old fishing gear got a hold of me again and I ‘invested’ a tenner in an old American closed faced spinning reel, a Zebco One Classic Feathertouch. I love the look of these reels and have wanted one for a while now so when I saw this one online I made […]
