    From the Portage Bar by Mark Usyk

    I’d been floating down river for at least an hour now. In the beginning the river was dark, deep holes with no bottom in sight. Sometimes several feet down logs could be seen blurry, like an old out of focus and overexposed photo. They seemed to jut out from nowhere...

    Stocked Trout Matters by Mark Usyk

    I’m guilty of fishing more or less one creek for the most part this year so far, not much variety. It’s next to the Little League field, so it was convenient with two boys always at practices. It’s within walking distance from the house, so it’s a fast and easy...

    How many times had I been up this stream? A couple at least. Enough to say I knew it, I’d fished it before, and I knew what was around the next bend. The water might be a little higher or a little lower than the time before, but I’d seen...

    Black Flies and Lost Boys by Mark Usyk

    The small farm lake belonging to distant cousins that my Grandfather and I fished my entire childhood has always been what I referred to as my sacred waters. You know, I have a connection to it that no other waters could ever take the place of. It’s in my blood...
