Matt Dickerson: Chasing the trout chasers

Posted on May 18, 2016 |

Matt Dickerson col Cadoret pike 7194.jpg

I had been on the river for less than an hour when I heard the distinctive “loot galoot” of a bittern. The sound brought back memories from 45 years earlier, and childhood fishing trips to northern Maine with my father pursuing wild brook trout. But this trip was in Vermont. And I was not pursuing trout. I was chasing after pike. Or, rather, hoping pike would do some chasing.

My wife and I went to a museum last week. It was called a museum, anyway. But was more of a zoo, botanical garden, aviary and aquarium of native local plants and animals all rolled into one. And it was mostly outdoors.

Andy Kirkaldy: More questions than answers for AL East teams

Posted on March 31, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Corey Buxton asked me last week what I thought about the Red Sox’s chances this year. To be honest, I said, I hadn’t really sized it up.

But then I rattled off, well, is pitcher Clay Buchholz going to make it through the year healthy? Were the end-of-the-season surges by fellow hurlers Joe Kelly and Rick Porcello last year for real, or are they going to be mediocre again (or worse)? How healthy is Eduardo Rodriguez, and can he build on his strong rookie season as a starting pitcher?

Matt Dickerson: Coming home

Posted on March 24, 2016 |
By Matt Dickerson



My older brother Ted just visited me from Alaska.

All three of my brothers enjoy outdoor activities. They have all done some camping, hiking and fishing. But Ted is my brother who enjoys outdoor recreation the most. Perhaps even more than I do. Like me he grew up in small town New England and was raised on fishing and camping trips with our father in northern Maine.

Karl Lindholm: Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

Posted on March 16, 2016 |
By Karl Lindholm



Muhammad Ali was a dancer.

He danced in the ring, light as a feather, sticking and moving, bobbing and weaving, avoiding blows, floating as if on air, stinging his earth-bound plodding adversaries, mere mortals, beating them up, knocking them down and out, in a world of hurt.

Ironic, isn’t it. Such grace of movement, such beauty of physical expression really, in service to violence and pain. Ali wanted to knock you out: his end, his purpose, was your end.

Matt Dickerson: A tangle of anglers

Posted on March 10, 2016 |

So what do you call a collection of similar creatures? For most common animals you probably know. Wolves, coyotes and dogs gather in packs. Unless they are newborns, in which case we have a litter.

There are prides of lions and broods of chickens. A gathering of sheep is called a flock. So is a gathering of geese. Unless they are flying, in which case they are called a skein. Or if they are grounded they can be called a gaggle.

Andy Kirkaldy: Of NFL quarterbacks, FIFA, and the best gym in Vermont

Posted on March 3, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



A few items, from local to international, have recently caught my attention.

Nationally, NFL quarterbacks have been in the news.

Peyton Manning got a pass from the media after walking off the field following a Super Bowl loss to the Saints and not shaking any hands, including that of winning QB Drew Brees.

He’s a competitor, said the talking heads.

Matt Dickerson: Of bull trout and the ethics of fishing, filming

Posted on February 25, 2016 |
By Matt Dickerson



Vermonters may have seen a story circulating the Internet. It involves Montana Wild, a media company specializing in fly-fishing and hunting films. Many Addison County residents are familiar with their work; it has been featured in the Fly Fishing Film Tour, which has packed the Town Hall Theater every April for the past several years.

Matt Dickerson: This place really does have some fine fishing

Posted on February 10, 2016 |
By Matt Dickerson



Matt Dickerson IMG_5200 CMYK.jpg

By late morning the air temperature had climbed to about 42 degrees Fahrenheit. It was downright balmy by the standards of early February steelhead fishing. Cocooned beneath my waders in multiple layers of fleece I was actually too warm. I would have gladly traded some of that warmth for a fish or two. But the first four hours of fishing hadn’t produced even a nibble.
