The Pittsburgh Penguins pulled off a stunning win against the Detroit Red Wings last night and I gotta say I am pretty surprised! I was certain Detroit would win the cup again, but it looks like the young Penguins team taught the veterans a lesson tonight. It really didn’t matter to me who won, both teams have Canadians, but seeing as that I am now a Nova Scotian, its good to know the cup will be close to home. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m talking about NHL hockey. Canada’s top player, Sidney Crosby grew up just down the street from where I currently live, and while he isn’t my favorite player, you cant deny his incredible skill – not to mention the lad is only 21! Congrats Pens!
You would think that fishing for rare and endangered species of fish would be a really bad idea, but in Thailand its a great idea! What started as one mans hobby as turned into a lucrative business. A lake stocked with rare and exotic fish offers visiting fishermen the change to catch rare species of fish without having to remove them from their natural habitat. Lake Monster is one of the few places in the world where anglers have a good chance of catching species such as the dog eating catfish without damaging wild populations. The one rule, every fish must be released.
I cant begin to tell you how many hours I wasted watching Kung Fu: The legend Continues after school. Its always strange to hear about an iconic actor passing away – especially one who could dodge bullets!

Look out guys there’s a new contributor on the block. Biz Davis is a good friend of mine who love music just as much as we love fishing. When he first started telling me about different fishing themed albums I told him that he should write a reoccurring column on my site all about it.. And he did!
As we roll out into summer I though it’d be a nice switch up here at FFHQ to drop some fly shit on y’all, and I’m not talkin’ lures. A whole weeks worth of Fish-Hop, dope albums with a nautical theme, for your listening pleasure.
Starting things off with the obvious: The Cool Kids, who hail from Chicago, and their latest mix-tape “Gone Fishin”.
A mixture of golden-era style rhymes (Think Eric B, Rakim, LL Cool J, Common Sense) and some serious 808′s and handclap production, this Don Cannon hosted tape gives us some nice tunes to hold over until their debut….”When Fish Ride Bicycles”. Chicago Hip-Hop and Fishing?!! A match made in Fishing Fury heaven!
If you’re a fan of sarcastic, indie hip-hop with a throwback vibe, then this is a perfect soundtrack to a lazy friday when you should be workin. :)
