The state Board of Public Works is forging another fishing legacy for Lefty Kreh: a seven-mile trail in Gunpowder Falls State Park to be named for the former outdoors editor of The Sun. The trail's moniker will become official at the board's meeting Dec. 21 in Annapolis. Kreh, 86, is expected to attend. The Cockeysville resident, who has authored more than 30 books on fishing, appeared humbled by the honor. "I appreciate [the state] doing this, but it kind of embarrasses me," said Kreh, who grew up in Frederick and spent 18 years writing for The Sun until his retirement in 1990.

For recreational fishermen, January is the worst month, the time of year when relatively few will fish, even on the warm, bluebird days. It is the month when cabin fever takes hold -- and the common cure often is found on a circuit of fishing shows and flea markets that stretch through winter into early spring."

Out there, they may grind it out at work or remain persistently unemployed, have all manner of romantic or familial trouble, and feel burdened by everything from taxes to traffic. But here, on the banks of a sparkling river on the first day of put-and-take trout fishing season, all is well. For many of Maryland's anglers, Saturday dawned as their very own New Year's Day. "We don't rush. We talk about life. We've had a lot of issues over the years — marriages, kids, divorces — but this is another year," said Gino Secola, 62, lingering in the parking lot with fishing buddy Bob Blasetti, 53, after wrapping up a successful morning on the Patapsco River.

The season of gift-giving is upon us, and the hardest part of the season can be finding a gift for the fisherman, especially the angler who has a good idea of what he wants and where he wants to fish.While the easiest thing to do might be to slip off to a local store and buy a pair of waders or a rod and reel and a stocking full of lures, such purchases may involve an element of risk.If you buy the wrong thing -- say a pair of nylon composite hip waders instead of neoprene chest waders -- you have missed the mark, and at some point down the road, the angler is likely to buy what he wanted, anyway.

When was the last time you were out fishing or hunting and stopped to ask yourself, "What am I doing wrong?" Admit it: There have been times when you haven't had all the answers.And probably there will be times when you will face another befuddling situation.Over the next several weeks, a number of hunting and fishing shows are on the calendar in our area, and at each there are opportunities to learn more about problematic situations and how to overcome the problems.On Friday, the Bass Expo opens a three-day run at the State Fairgrounds in Timonium, and Bob Dobart, a top regional bass fisherman and a former touring professional, has put together an impressive list of teachers for the schedule of seminars that is free to anyone who purchases a ticket to the show:* David Fritts, who won the B.A.S.

The days of free saltwater fishing in Maryland are numbered. And that will be a good thing - for the fish in the sea and future generations of anglers. The scramble is on in this state and eight others along the Eastern Seaboard to devise licensing systems that will satisfy the federal government's demand for a means to account for recreational anglers and their catches. Fourteen of the country's 23 coastal states have recreational saltwater fishing licenses or permits. For those states, the new federal law means tweaking existing regulations to meet National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS)

State officials want to implement a comprehensive $15 saltwater fishing license starting next year to bring Maryland into compliance with federal law and keep revenue here that otherwise would be funneled to Washington. The license proposal, which is expected to be introduced in General Assembly as early as Friday, would end free fishing for anglers on the Atlantic Ocean and on the coastal bays behind Ocean City. In addition, the bill would: increase the length of short-term licenses from five to seven days; establish a free registry for anglers fishing from pleasure boats, waterfront property owners and their immediate family fishing from their property and individuals fishing in a free fishing area; create reciprocal fees for non-resident tidal licenses; and authorize a commercial pier fishing license.

IN THE culinary and the piscatorial worlds, the name of the game is presentation. Good anglers and good chefs know that without an enticing display, there won't be much of a feeding frenzy. Enrico Puglisi knows a thing or two about both. As a chef, he perfected seafood dishes that filled restaurant tables in his native Sicily and later on New York's Long Island. These days, he's helping anglers attract fish with some of the best saltwater patterns around. Puglisi has become a fixture at the College Park Fly Fishing Show, where he gathers crowds with his tying demonstrations.

Let's start with a heartwarming thought: Two of the area's biggest fishing shows are just three weeks away. The 17th annual Fishing Expo and Boat Show, Jan. 11-14 at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, is the hot stove league of fishing. Select some new toys, ogle the ones out of your price range, and talk fishing with the experts. Bob Dobart, who founded the show 17 years ago, says he's arranged to have more than 350 bass and saltwater boats from 50 manufacturers on display. The show has evolved over the years, starting as strictly a bass expo but expanding to include saltwater fishing five years ago. "After 17 years, it's hard to come up with something new," Dobart says.

While a persistent winter storm iced in the parking lots at the state fairgrounds in Timonium on Thursday afternoon, a top fly-fishing guide clicked through a series of slides showing sunny, T-shirt weather and monster stripers, channel bass and blues taken on saltwater flies.At first glance it might have been the lower Chesapeake Bay or Maryland's coastal waters, but the scenes were from North Carolina, where saltwater fly fishing has taken off over the past few years, inside and outside the Outer Banks.

Nearly half the seminars at last week's 13th Bass Expo, Saltwater Fishing & Fly-fishing Show were aimed at fly-rodders and those interested in fly fishing.Whether your interest lies in bass, trout, panfishing or saltwater trophies, such as striped bass and bluefish, a fly-rod will make itself right at home and, in many instances, out-fish spinning and casting equipment.Beyond doubt, the fastest growing area of sportfishing in our area is saltwater fly-rodding.Until recently, Norm Bartlett and Joe Bruce had the Chesapeake Bay fly-rodding business pretty much to themselves.
