Figuring it all out

Who’s right? Who’s wrong? Who’s telling the truth? Who’s lying? And why? Some things and some people we used to think we could count on have let us down. Some institutions have let us down. So many elected officials have an agenda that serves themselves, not the people. There are more opinions than their are … Continue reading

It’s a slow day, okay?

“Puff Daddy”, RIP

Most of you already know this, but the D’Arbonne fishing community has lost another good one. This happens more often than I’d like. I can’t always write about it. But this time I can. I’m sorry I didn’t get to tell Kirk Townsend goodbye. Kirk and I weren’t real close friends and we didn’t share … Continue reading

Honor sacrifice

Memorial Day is Monday, May 25. The day is observed honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Too many people don’t understand that today. They don’t even know what it means. Make sure you and your family do. And take time not just to barbecue, fish or picnic, but … Continue reading

The civilization test: Fail

Like everywhere, Lake D’Arbonne Country has its share of issues. They can’t all be solved. But there’s one problem driving people crazy that could be helped. Trash. More specifically, wanton litter.

Safety comes first, but fishing is one thing you can do and still social distance yourself, even at a tournament. The winners will have … Continue reading

Happy Mother’s Day

“There is nothing better for a person than that they should eat and drink and find enjoyment in their toil. This also, I saw, is from the hand of God, for apart from Him who can have enjoyment?” — Ecclesiastes 2:24 *************** My Mom didn’t have an easy life. Most people born in 1919 didn’t. … Continue reading

Letting the air out

Remember seeing someone blow up a balloon full of air, then letting go of it and watching it fly around to and fro, until it runs out of air and hits the dirt with a thud? It’s always a bit funny to watch. That’s kind of the way organized fishing has been this spring. But … Continue reading
