eople used to play a game called six degrees of separation. I don’t know, maybe they still do. According to Wikipedia, six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps.

Being a fly fisherman, in part anyway, I’ve read many books about fly fishing and was even inspired to write my own book, after reading Seth...

It was Championship Week in ACRA’s Adult Co-ed Soccer League last Saturday. After seven great weeks of play it all came down to two teams for the Championship. The Flores Team has a good amount of veteran players for this league. Many of them have been around since the first league two years ago. The other team, Amador FC, is brand new to this league but definitely not new to competitive soccer. They are a group mainly made up from a winter league travel team that took first place in that league. They are younger, with most of the... [Read more]

I’m baaaack. I thought this move was going to be the death of me, but I survived. I’m now settled here in beautiful downtown Jackson and ready to get the show on the road.

General Trout Season is now if full swing and hitting the Middle Fork of the Cosumnes for a little fly fishing seemed to be the right thing for my first outing.

My friend Yuki has wanted to get more into fly fishing even though we’ve dabbled a bit out at the Trout Pond and North Shore of Lake Camanche, fishing with dry flies on a creek can be a lot more...

Margaret Mead once said “Never doubt that a small group of dedicated citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.” This quote reminds me of the way the Amador Tennis Club leaders have changed the tennis scene here in Amador County. Years ago, people like Benita Asher and Rosalie Escamilla led the work to transform the physical tennis landscape by adding top quality lights at the Argonaut Courts; resurfacing the courts at both high schools; and adding windbreaks and drinking fountains to make the tennis...

Question: When sport fishing for black bass, California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) regulations say the fish must willingly take the bait in its mouth. However, it doesn’t say if the hook has to be inside the mouth or not. For example, when fishing a multi-hook bait, can the hook go from the outside to the inside of the mouth? As bass often hit these baits while attempting to eat it, the rule seems a little vague. (Randy R.)

Answer: No, this would be considered foul hooking and not legal since the fish is essentially...
