During a recent spring-cleaning at my mother's house, the basement rafters gave up a treasure. A rod and reel - my dad's - covered in dust and rust was wedged between some cracked plastic sheeting used to cover basement windows and some ancient curtain rods. I hadn't seen it in years, make that decades, since my dad and grandfather used to take me fishing on the Pennsylvania portion of the Susquehanna River, from Tunkhannock to Laceyville. I figured it had disappeared in 1972, when the floodwaters of Hurricane Agnes swept away Uncle Walter's riverfront cabin, lock, stock and hammock.

Gary Rasnake leaned against the starboard side of the boat, arms crossed, hoping for a bite. The retired Army sergeant first class had been waiting about four hours on the Chesapeake Bay waters, much of it in the same position, for the telltale jerk of a fishing rod. Rasnake, whose nearly 25-year infantry career was cut short in 2009 after suffering a back injury in Afghanistan, was one of 58 retired and active-duty military members who joined...

"I don't want to piddle in anyone's corn flakes," as my grandma Opal Starner used to say, her prelude to the main event. Folks at Baltimore's transportation department, put your hands over the bowls. I took a ride late last week to see your Nicodemus Bridge makeover. Nice idea, fine execution. But here comes the piddle: you ruined a half-century-old fishing spot for no good reason. The bridge over Liberty Reservoir at the Baltimore County-Carroll County line has been a great fishing spot since Howdy Doody was a 2-by-4.

I FELT sorry for my 8-year-old son. His best friend, Bobby, was out of town and wouldn't be visiting, as was their routine on Sunday afternoons. "Let's go fishing - just you and me," I consoled Isaac. "Well, OK, since you and Mommy are my best friends too," he said bravely. I knew he meant in addition to Bobby. We were at our favorite place on Sue Creek in Middle River within the hour. I baited our hooks and set the bobbers for a depth of about 2 feet. Since the tide was out, we moved to the end of the small pier where water was deep enough to lose sight of the muddy bottom.

In an unusual move, Carroll County Circuit Judge Luke K. Burns Jr. took 12 jurors and four alternates to the Monocacy River near Frederick County yesterday where prosecutors say William Charles Prodoehl spent the last moments of his life.The field trip lasted about 90 minutes. Several court observers said it is the only one they can remember. It also took jurors hearing a first-degree murder charge against Roy Monroe Robertson to Big Pipe Creek, south of Taneytown, where police found the revolver they believe killed Mr. Prodoehl in February 1993.

His window looks out onto Eutaw Street, and the field at Camden Yards. On game days, it's the best view in baseball.Sitting at his desk, Roland Hemond can see the smoke rising from Boog's barbecue, the crowds gathering on Eutaw Street, the players stretching on the field below.The window is his clock, his mirror to the game's soul.Yesterday, Hemond searched for a reflection of the Orioles preparing to play the New York Yankees in the opener of a three-game series.All he saw was a groundskeeper mowing the lawn.

Some mornings when you wake up, the primal lizard part of your brain screams that you simply must go fishing before work. Otherwise you're liable to act on that fantasy of chasing a co-worker around the office with a nail gun. (Come on, admit it.) But after reading the paper and drinking coffee, you get dressed and head for the office, anyway. Not me. Not Friday. With the weekend forecast predicting nastiness, my little car turned off Route 29 in Howard County and drove straight to the parking lot at Centennial Lake.

TOKYO -- I almost packed a fishing rod. But the thought of making the local newspapers for illegally taking carp from the Imperial Ponds gave me pause. It's tough to recall what day it is here at the World Figure Skating Championships, where Bel Air's Kimmie Meissner was defending her title. If you want to try something different, try keeping skaters and stripers straight. Can't wait to get back and do some fishing. Right now, the only fish I'm seeing is sushi, and that's nothing but fancy bait.

Jesse Sullivan has lost both arms at his shoulders, but with the help of a prosthetic arm and hand and a set of rewired nerves, he can now feel -- and sense hot and cold -- almost as if he had real fingers. Two years ago, experts thought this advance lay at least a decade away. Now they see it as a leap forward in treating victims of stroke, lost limbs and paralysis. Sullivan, 58, sees it as a step toward his fishing rod. "That's where I'm going with it," Sullivan said at a news conference in Chicago announcing the new technology.

I HAVE A LITTLE advice for dads who might be thinking of spending Father's Day with a fishing rod on the Chesapeake Bay or any of its tributaries: Throw 'em back. Release your catch. For the sake of your own health, evoke the name of that bygone Baltimore establishment, "No Fish Today," and pick up something else for dinner on your way home. From Save The Bay, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's quarterly newsletter: "The Maryland Department of the Environment reported that every fish tested from 14 tidal tributaries contained levels of at least one of six toxic chemicals dangerous to human health.

The mild weather finally got to me last week, and I began the year's fishing a few weeks early. No serious fishing, mind you, just some casual fun stuff.Late Saturday morning, I parked my car just below the bridge spanning the North Branch of the Patapsco River, off Emory Road, in Finksburg, pulled on a pair of hip boots and armed myself with an ultralight spinning rig and a small, pocket-sized box of assorted in-line spinners and 1/4 -ounce crank-baits.My first cast was over water directly under the bridge.

At age 10, Jessica Digman has a skill anglers four times her age would die for. The Carroll County girl can drop a crawfish lure into the middle of a bull's-eye at 30 feet. Overhand, underhand, sidearm - it hardly matters. Her casting accuracy has won seven titles in three states. Just one title remains, the national Bass Angler Sportsman Society CastingKids championship. It eluded her in 1999, when she finished third, and last year, when she got as far as the regionals. But she hopes to make amends in New Orleans next week, with a win over four competitors in her age group - all boys - in the convention center next to the Superdome.
