A Walleye Adventure Unlike Most

My son, Chilly and I were camping in Northern Ontario a few years back. It was early July, we were fishing in current below a waterfall and the walleyes were committing suicide. These were big walleyes, one 24” fish after another with an occasional 26”, 27” or 28”er. On this day we probably caught 60 walleyes between us. Anyway, in the middle of all this excitement, I suddenly needed to take a break from fishing and head into the woods, (if you know what I mean). The only problem was that I didn’t want to stop fishing. “Fawkinnae! I’m going to have to go into shore,” I yelled. “Chilly, see if there’s any toilet paper in the front of the...

Panties In the Jungle

I had no idea that sparkly thong panties would figure in my trip to the Upper Amazon of Peru. But, as a friend once said, “When you go places, things happen”. American Airlines canceled my flight to Lima so that was the start of it all and things went south, so to speak, from there. You, dear readers, are probably all too familiar with indifferent airline staff, abysmal customer service and all the other trials of today’s air travel so I’ll skip the gory details of hours of frustration and fighting just to get myself to Lima.Arriving a full 36 hours later than planned, I was able to meet up with my fellow expedition members with just one little snag. FAW-KINN-AE,...
