A Motorcycle Tale in Algoma Country.
It's been said, if you ride a motorcycle you've a story to tell. I believe that's because on a motorcycle you become part of the scene, unlike in an automobile sitting behind windows, observing it. Even the most barren of roads can offer up an adventure or tale when you're sitting amidst it on a motorcycle.

Locally known as "specks" or "speckled trout" the brook trout is exceptionally attractive, but this…
The author’s quest to catch trophy pike started in Ontario over 25 years ago and every season he looks forward to another chapter in this ongoing saga.

Personally, I fell willingly into the "love" category the first time one of these torpedo-shaped predators darted out and grabbed my lure inches from the boat!…
