Evening Secret Blog – Fishing – My Accident

leave a comment »

To this day I can’t explain why I am still alive. I should be dead. My mother and I were visiting my grandmother and uncle, during my summer vacation. I was about 10 years old . They lived in a very rural area. The valley where they lived was quite narrow, running north to south. It might have taken 5 minutes to drive from one side to the other and both sides of this valley, were heavily forested. The western mountain side, very green and wet and the eastern side a bit drier.
A creek snaked its…

Evening Secret Blog – Golf: Hooks Are Fine In Fishing But Not So Good In Golf

leave a comment »

For the majority of golfers (those that play right handed) a hook is simply a shot that veers off to the left of its intended target. In some cases the shot will start out to the right of its intended line and then veer off to the left during flight while, in other cases, it will start left and then move further out to the left as it travels through the air. In either case the result is a shot that ends up often way left of where you intended it to be.The “hook” shot is very common and is the re…

Evening Secret Blog – Fishing for Rainbow Bass on Lake Gatun, Panama

leave a comment »

I had the chance to go fishing on Panama?s Lake Gatun recently. Located in the canal, and in fact compromising much of the natural section of the Panama Canal, Lake Gatun is a tropical paradise. Rich with wildlife, its beauty and seemingly untouched waterways and islands are in sharp contrast with the cargo ships, car carries, military destroyers and Panamax that are cruising through the canal. It was overcast when we arrived at the dock in Chames to board our 15 foot, 25 horsepower skiff. Our c…

Living in a country with one of the highest unemployment, poverty and crime rates in the world, this is a subject I could go on about ad nauseam. I do respect your time, so I’ll try to be brief.
Even the ‘poor’ have integrity and pride (I’m generalizing) and so many other laudable qualities many of us have yet to understand (e.g. perseverance and strength under any circumstance). To a large extent, particularly those cultures that emphasize the status of the man in society, they have also learnt…
