We reached out and touched Thomas Jefferson ... at least my wife and I felt we did when we entered his world on a recent driving tour of Virginia's Jefferson country. We discovered that the state where this extraordinary American was born, raised and passed his last years is so rich in structures and landscapes associated with him that he is a presence here still. Seeing his world in three dimensions made him seem even more real to us than did the commendable Ken Burns' television treatment of his life.

Adventure should be shared. What would Lewis be without Clark? Mason minus Dixon? Hillary sans Norgay? Even that adventure stud Indiana Jones didn't go solo, although Harrison Ford once played Han Solo. But I digress. So when it came time to compete in the Maryland Park Service's new Park Quest contest, I expected to be at the helm of Team Spartacus, with three trusty friends by my side. Wishful thinking. Commitments - prior, last-minute and fabricated - reduced the hearty team to me. With apologies to Kirk Douglas, I was Spartacus.

Fishing has been slow to develop, with ice and snow and high water levels, but there has been sporadic yellow perch activity on Tuckahoe Creek at Hillsboro, below the dam at Tuckahoe State Park, in the Nanticoke River near Seaford, Del., the Blackwater and in the Patuxent near Wayson's Corner.But with water levels high, especially in the Potomac River, great care should be taken by shoreline fishermen, and boating in some areas remains out of the question.

HILLSBORO -- At the top of the path leading down into Tuckahoe State Park from Horse Shoe Road, November was trying hard to force its way into the last week of October, a stiff northwest breeze blowing cold across a cornfield of stubbles.Beyond a tree line a couple of hundred yards past the road, a great number of geese were making a great racket.But down the path toward Tuckahoe Creek, the woods close in and mute the sounds, block the wind. A doe, startled, bolts into the brush. Squirrels scurry onto tree trunks and peek around the edges until the intruder has passed.

The hen and the drake mallard banked low around the point, dropped their feet as if to land and, before the specter of an unusual intruder, flogged away over the marshy backwater a mile or so upstream from the dam at Tuckahoe Lake.Red-winged blackbirds chattered nosily. Great blue herons stalked the shallows patiently. Frogs called from deep cover. Northern water snakes swam the edges of the spatterdock.And another largemouth bass had hit a crank bait and was taking line.Tuckahoe Lake is one of those curious places in Maryland, off the beaten path in Caroline County and at first glance a basin to control water runoff from surrounding farmland.

A couple of weeks ago, on the way home from a disappointing hunt in the opening split of duck season, the car was pulled into an ersatz parking area along Route 404 on the Eastern Shore, where the Tuckahoe River crosses beneath the highway.A fly rod still in the car from an earlier trip was taken out, the reel loaded with a spool filled with sink-tip line and a 6-foot leader of 8-pound test monofilament. A box with a half-dozen green and yellow deceivers was slipped into a hip pocket and a bee line was made to the river bank.

The other day, several days after the heavy rains had stopped and the sun shone for several hours at a stretch, a crowd formed around the dam at Tuckahoe Lake and along the banks of Tuckahoe Creek.From the far side of the semicircular dam, a young boy shouted to his older sister, who stood along the rail in the center of the wooden bridge that crosses the creek, "I got one! Yes, I got one! Finally, I got one!"The sister, wise already by the age of 12, shouted back to her brother, who was furiously reeling line against a deeply bowed rod and a grudgingly yielding drag, "You got a whale or you got a snag."

TUCKAHOE STATE PARK -- On the last day of winter, Tuckahoe Creek was giving up its fish grudgingly, while the weather ran the gamut from a thin mist to a stinging sleet. It was that sort of day, cold enough to numb your fingers and make your nose run.But it was fun.After all, it had seemed like too long a time since the rockfish season had faded into the cold end of November, fishing giving way to deer and duck and goose seasons, and the days dragging into the dead zone between mid-February and late March, when there always seems little more to do than refill spools, rearrange tackle boxes and clean and lubricate reels.
