Little fish are a big lure for this angler

Some fishermen strive to catch the biggest fish in the lake. Not James Anderson. He is quite content to go after the “mighty mites” of the fish world. He is a bluegill fisherman. And he takes his game seriously. In the spring, Anderson often is preoccupied with catching crappies at Wyandotte County Lake. But once summer arrives, he switches his focus to bluegills.

Marmot jacket perfect for any hiking trail

You don't necessarily think of a jacket as summertime gear, but when you run into bad weather on the hiking trail - particularly at altitude - you quickly discover how important it can be. The Marmot Red Star is a high-tech jacket that manages to be both waterproof and comfortable. Made with a three-layer NanoPro stretch fabric (a proprietary Marmot product), the Red Star keeps water out, even in the strongest downpours. After the storm, the Red Star's underarm vents will help if you start to overheat on the trail and help you dry out.
