I'm putting this one together in the airport in California. The plane's broke. I've been sitting here for about seven hours. Have you ever noticed that planes break on the way home when you want to see your family?
Opening Day is now a memory. I had a good time out in the woods hunting but the day belonged to the deer. I saw several good bucks and have seen several more since then, but haven't had a good shot.

I'm in the middle of a weird experience this week. It's really strange. I'm doing TV commentary for the PAA (Professional Angler's Association) Corporate Cup tournament on Pickwick Lake.

The other day I received a call from a writer with an interesting question. Basically, he asked why I thought our sport hasn't been plagued by a major scandal like so many others, especially now that there's so much money involved?
