After long winter, anglers return to county's streams

Posted on April 6, 2015 |
By Evan Johnson

MIDDLEBURY — For Jesse Haller, it’s that time of year again. When the mountains of snow outside of the Middlebury Mountaineer outdoor gear shop start to shrink, dedicated anglers begin to re-emerge and show up at the Park Street shop for leaders, tippet and lures with names like Geezus Lizard, Sneaky Pete and Sleazeburger.

For them, springtime means only one thing: Opening day of the fishing season is just around the corner.

Matt Dickerson: Washing out and rinsing down

Posted on January 28, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dick.jpg

Earlier this month I spent a long weekend in Oregon.

Oregon is deservedly famous for at least two things. One is craft breweries. According to 2013 Brewers Association statistics, Oregon boasts 6.3 craft breweries per 100,000 adults, ranking No. 1 in the country in that category. (For the record, Vermont claims 6.2 per 100,000, placing us at a very close No. 2. By contrast, our neighbors New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and New York have a mere 2.2, 1.2, and 1.1, respectively.)

Matt Dickerson: Merry fishing — patience on ice

Posted on January 14, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



Fish.jpg

We were out on the ice of Christopher Lake an hour before sunrise, and 30 minutes before the legal start of the new fishing season. But we needed those 30 minutes. The previous afternoon, in preparation for our early morning excursion, I had drilled 10 eight-inch diameter holes through ice a half a foot thick. But as I expected, an inch or so of new ice had formed during the night, and we needed the augers to reopen the holes.

Matt Dickerson: Reflections, the scattershot way

Posted on December 10, 2014 |
By Matt Dickerson



•  I’m not a big fan of bullet point presentations. But it’s approaching the end of another year, which is the time when writers are expected to wrap up an entire 12 months in a single column. Which is to say, the time of year when we have an excuse to throw together a bunch of random thoughts that have at most a vague connection and call them a column. (It will get worse in four weeks. Trust me.) That’s what bullet points are for.

Rack & Reel now open in New Haven

Posted on October 9, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



RackandReel4298.jpg

NEW HAVEN — Cars packed the parking lot on the west side of Route 7 in New Haven Junction this past weekend. Sure, some people hit the highway to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather, but others came for the grand opening of Rack & Reel, a hunting and sporting goods store.

“The community has been beyond receptive,” co-owner Bridget Kipp said. “So many people have come in here thanking us, saying it was needed in the area, and that they’ll be back.”

Matt Dickerson: For the love of fishing knowledge

Posted on September 17, 2014 |
By Matt Dickerson



When I moved to Addison County 25 years ago, two of my priorities were finding good local fishing and finding a good local fishing-and-outdoor store. The latter of these proved easier. Vermont Field Sports was already a well-established fixture in Middlebury in the fall of 1989. Dick Phillips opened the store in 1982 with 700 square feet of space in the Red School House building on Route 7 South.
