    Properly dispose of old fishing line

    Tips on choosing the right fishing rod
    The choices can be bewildering. Walk into any tackle shop and say something as seemingly direct as “I want to buy a fishing rod” and be prepared to get peppered with questions.

    Think location, appetites for fall smallmouth bass

    Variety the spice of life, and of trout fishing, too
    Rare – like Bigfoot rare -- is the angler who has just one type of lure or one size hook in his tackle box. They probably don’t exist. Variety, that’s what every fisherman or woman wants. So why not with our trout, too? The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission stocks four types of trout each spring. They’re browns, rainbows, brooks...

    Taxidermy an art form, but do your homework
    The days of taxidermy being little more than ratty-looking stuffed heads on grandpa’s wall are over. Or at least it can be. Taxidermy has evolved into an art form. If you doubt that, visit the annual exhibitions put on by groups like the Pennsylvania Taxidermist Association or their counterparts in other states.

    Winter steelhead fishing an overlooked opportunity
    Maybe they don’t know what they’re missing when it comes to winter steelhead fishing. Maybe they’re too afraid of the cold to care. But whatever.
