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

Keeler: Plenty of talent in Citi Open

It's a bit of a dead period in sports right now. Soon football will take center stage and baseball will get to what really matters - the playoffs. However, if you need your fix of some great professional athletes playing in the D.C. area, next week's Citi Open combined men's and women's professional tennis tournament could be the place for you. comments

Almy: Outdoor show coming

The majority of outdoor sportsmen shows are held in late winter, after fall hunting seasons have finished. That's certainly a perfect time to hold such an event, when there's not much to do outside. comments

Keeler: Ravens could have big year

This is the time of year that I dislike the most in sports. With basketball season over, only baseball is going on, of the big three sports. I do love baseball, but the season is just way too long to keep my attention for the whole season. However, football is just around the corner. comments

Murto: Unions, NASCAR don't mix

Almy: Anglers neglect rock bass

The lowly rock bass won't win many popularity contests among anglers. These fish are not sleek and powerful like a landlocked striper. They don't jump like a belligerent bass or streak through the currents like a rainbow trout or chinook salmon. comments

Fauber: Will big changes help HR Derby?

Baseball has always been a sport filled with tradition, and any attempts to make changes to the game that seems to grind against that tradition is generally met with plenty of criticism. comments

Nations: Beltway Series, at last?

As Major League Baseball plods toward its approximation of the regular-season's halfway point, the All-Star break, it seems as good a time as any to dream if you're a D.C.-area sports fan. comments

Almy: Food plots: getting started

Novices often think whitetail deer thrive in a woods setting. But the fact is, a one acre food plot can yield as much nutrition as 100 acres of mature woods. comments

Almy: Big bass can't resist rat lures

Casting the lure towards the vast mat of milfoil, I cranked slowly on the handle of the baitcast reel, tensing instinctively. Somehow I just knew a strike was coming. Seconds later, it did. The mat of milfoil literally exploded as a seven-pound largemouth broke through the vegetation and nailed the soft lure shimmying in a v-wake across the surface. comments

Almy: Cleaning trout on site provides the best table fare possible

Last week we looked at the "dapping" technique for catching trout. But whether you use this unique method or a more traditional cast, once you hook and land your quarry you face a big decision -- what to do with the catch. comments

Almy: 'Dap' nails tough trout

Novice fly fishermen often think the farther they cast, the more trout they'll catch. Actually, more often than not carefully stalking and wading and then a short, accurate cast is a better approach. In fact, sometimes even no cast at all is the most effective fishing technique. comments
