For many of us, the chaotic nature of life in the concrete jungle can eventually reach critical mass. Whether it’s a classic case of cubicle fever, or the persistent siege of car horns, emails and calendar updates - we all experience the inevitable need to break free of it - and escape.
It's finally here! Bass opener has arrived here in southeastern Ontario, and it is one of my most anticipated fishing seasons of the year. I just can't get enough of chasing both largemouth and smallmouth bass and spend a majority of my summers targeting both. To kick off the season opener this time around, I headed back to Lennox & Addington County, this time to chase smallmouth bass on Skootamatta Lake.
Who doesn't like to take a leisurely ride in the country, sometimes getting lost along the way? I know I do... If I'm in my car.
When I'm on a motorcycle it's a different story. When my wife Theresa and I take our bike out for a cruise, we like to plan the trips a bit better. Having only a 250 km range before filling up does cause some limitations. After all, it's an awful feeling being stranded in a remote area with no gas in the tank. Trust me, I know.
