Peter Mathiesen and I have been friends since the early 80's. We have both found a way to make a living doing what we love to do, hunting, fishing and writing.
A few years ago, Peter and his wife Sandy moved to Talkeetna, Alaska from St Louis in search of a slower and quieter life. He finished building a house on a small lake and started guiding on the many rivers in the area with a resident and Bed & Breakfast owner, Tom Redman.
Catch of the week
Phil Lilley was in search of small trout when he took his grandkids fishing recently on Lake Taneycomo.
“We were trying to catch a couple of small trout for an art project they were doing,” said Lilley, who runs Lilleys’ Landing Resort and Marina.
Drifting anything on Lake Taneycomo can be a challenge if you don't know how to go about it. Using the right amount of weight is the key. I try to explain and show how to in this short video.
The outdoors has always been a place of reverence for many of us who fish and hunt and rightly so. God created it for us. It shows His handiwork, His character, His glory. Even people who don't believe in God look at this world as a special place.
Genesis 2:15 says "God took man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it." That was his very first assignment. He was told to name every creature, "and that would be their name." Man has had a relationship with God's creation ever since.
