My friend, John, fishing the delta just below my anchorage at sundown. I’d love to have had a similar photo of my boat, but never did. Fishing and boating the California Delta was the most enjoyable pastime I ever experienced.

Over the years I have posted many exciting fishing and boating stories here, but now in my seventies, it was time to sell the boat and find less demanding pastimes. All the fishing stories are still here! I will now post my travels aboard the motorhome and other activities. I hope y'all will still enjoy the fishing and boating adventures and perhaps peek in on my post-boating activities on occasion. Thanks for dropping in and I hope you enjoy your visit.
