Fly fishing from heaven

August 28, 2014

For the past few months, I have been hearing and seeing reviews for Tenkara fly fishing rods and had been hoping to give one a try. I enjoy the challenge of a new skill but I like to get all the help I can when learning it. So this past week I linked up with fly fishing guide and Tenkara instructor Pat Jaeger at Eastern Sierra Guide Service to have him show me the ropes.
Pat and I went out and threw some flies with some of his Tenkara setups on the Lower Owens River and I learned a few things about Tenkara fishing.

Fishing Report

August 28, 2014

Lake Sabrina
A bit of wind, a dip in temps, shorter days, a spot of color here and there, a lack of children during the week – could it mean that fall is just around the corner? But first, we have the last holiday weekend of summer, Labor Day and the Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fair.
Fishing this week was on and off. Saw some nice stringers leaving the lake and some not so nice stringers. Anglers not catching fish can come on into the store and get some advice.

Broncos football, volleyball sneak peak

August 26, 2014

The Bishop Broncos football squads will start their season this Friday under a new program, one that similar sized schools have used for a while.
Both the varsity and junior varsity teams will be practicing together and partially sharing the coaching staff. “It brings the teams closer,” said head coach Bill Egan. “Schools like Sierra Canyon and Paraclete have been using this program; it puts the emphasis on consistency and experience.”

Double D falls to BSers

July 14, 2014

A definite trend is developing at Bishop City Park’s ball field. Of the two teams warming up and setting their batting order, one of the two is a “sure bet” winner. OK, the sure bet usually does win, but the underdog, though trailing up to the final innings, puts on an impressive drive, closes in on the eventual winner and keeps the game interesting.
