Almy: Tips for reeling panfish

No fish are more appealing to go after on a hot September day than panfish. Unlike bass, trout and stripers, which can sometimes be difficult to catch, species like crappies, bluegills and white bass are almost always willing to nab a lure, fly or bait. They're made to order for those days when you want to take it easy, kick back and enjoy being out on a lake or river without too much concentration on finesse tactics -- yet still come home with a cooler full of fish! comments

Keeler: New year, same Redskins

As a Dallas Cowboys fan, I don't enjoy writing this. OK, maybe just a little. I know it's only been one game, but do the Washington Redskins under new head coach Jay Gruden look a little like the Redskins of last year? comments

Fauber: Opener critical for SU

All throughout fall camp, one common theme has been repeatedly addressed by players and coaches in Shenandoah University's football program -- the need to develop the collective confidence and consistency that the Hornets severely lacked last season. SU can now stop talking about that goal and prove that things will be different in 2014. comments

Almy: Jump fishing worth a shot

White mist swirled over the emerald green waters of Leesville Lake as we raced towards the frothing commotion of churning gamefish and frantically skipping shad. Cutting the outboard motor, we cast our white bucktail jigs towards the melee and began reeling. Soon all three rods in the boat were bent double. comments

Keeler: Citi Open has long ways to go

I've always had high hopes that someday the Citi Open in Washington D.C. could be elevated to a bigger professional tennis tournament. The idea of seeing players such as Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova dancing around in my head. However, after actually attending and seeing most of those players last week in Cincinnati I realize that D.C. has a long ways to go to become a big-time tennis tournament. comments

Almy: Smaller topwater lures produce

No thrill in angling can match that of a hungry bass chomping down on a surface lure the size of a rat. But finding such aggressively-feeding fish is unfortunately the exception rather than the rule. When bass are in a finicky, skittish mood or not aggressively feeding, jumbo surface lures often fail miserably. comments

Almy: Trout love hopper flies

While aquatic insects such as mayflies get most of the attention in trout fishing literature, in modern times terrestrial insects (those living on land) are becoming more and more important in the diet of trout. They jump, fall, get blown in by wind or washed in by rain and are greedily gobbled up by waiting brook, brown and rainbow trout. comments
