Matt Dickerson: My biggest wish for the new year

Posted on December 30, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



It seems that we live in a time of extremes.

Looking out our window this morning at several inches of fresh snow, I had my first hope of some cross-country skiing. Then I got to the breakfast table and looked out the big window. The precipitation had changed to an ugly mix of sleet and rain.

Matt Dickerson: Entering the story

Posted on December 16, 2015 |

I like fishing. I like telling stories. I’ve enjoyed doing both for as long as I can remember. Some say that fishing and telling stories are two sides of the same coin. Fish + Stories = Fish Stories.

Matt Dickerson: Nostalgia (and wild animal photos)

Posted on December 2, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



For the past several weeks I’ve been getting a large number of texts and social media messages from my good friend David O’Hara. Dave is a former Vermont resident now living in the flatlands of southeastern South Dakota, and feeling nostalgic for the cold trout streams and not-so-flat lands of Vermont. It is always good to hear from Dave. He is one of my closest friends, and the co-author with me of three books, most recently “Downstream,” a collection of essays on fly-fishing, ecology, philosophy and Appalachia.

Sports Column by Andy Kirkaldy: Panthers, locals excel at exciting sport with sticks

Posted on November 25, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



It’s funny, field hockey has a reputation as a sport that is constantly being interrupted by whistles.

I thought of that on Sunday afternoon while I sat in front of my computer and watched the Middlebury College team battle Bowdoin for the NCAA Division III title and win, 1-0.  

Many more were probably glued to televisions watching a sport in which every play begins and ends with a whistle, and the athletes have to gather for a committee meeting before they decide what to do next. Yes, that would be football.

Sports Column by Matt Dickerson: Appreciating our autumn harvest

Posted on November 19, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



I was at a dinner event this week with about 20 people. We gathered around a large table. As often happens, there were several conversations going on during the meal, and then again after the meal as we mingled in different groups as guests slowly rose and prepared to depart. Two of the conversations I took part in were prompted by very different topics and involved different people, but took an interesting turn toward a common theme.

Karl Lindholm: Baseball in Cuba: More than a sport

By Karl Lindholm



Linholm Matanzas stadium color.jpg

Editor’s note: This is the second of a two-part series. Read part one here.

“It could be a train wreck,” was Oscar’s apprehensive assessment.

We were having a late night impromptu discussion of the future of Cuban baseball in Kit Krieger’s 17th-floor room in the Habana Libre Hotel. We had just returned from watching Industriales of Havana defeat Camaguey, 7-1, at Estadio Latinamericano.

Editor’s note: This is the first of two parts.

I followed Oscar.

He gestured subtly and said, “Come with me.”

We had just been entertained by Victor Mesa, the manager of the Matanzas Cocodrilos, in the clubhouse just a half-hour before his game against Ciego de Avila.

Sports column: A promising ending to the trout season

Posted on October 29, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



I stepped through the brush down from the bank into the stream. Though it had been a favorite spot many years earlier, I had not fished this particular stretch of water in a couple years. The long deep pool that used to swirl past boulders was gone, slowly filled in, or shifted by the annual spring scouring. Or perhaps wiped out in a single big flood. But I eyed a decent-looking new run 20 yards upstream of where I stood. I paused a moment, taking in the changes to the stream’s course while I blew on my hands to warm them. Then I waded up the streambed and took a cast.

Sports Column by Matt Dickerson: Fishing for trout in the high desert

When I think of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, I usually have in mind more coastal areas. All but one of my previous visits to Washington or Oregon have been to the western side of the Cascade Mountains: to Seattle, Portland, the Willamette Valley, or to some little city along the Oregon coast.
