SHARE Chicago Muskie Show: Showtime around Chicago begins

So things are just different, say fly-fishing for muskie.

But Robert Tomes loves it. And the Chicago auther of the definitive Muskie on the Fly spreads his love with a seminar at 7 p.m. Friday on opening night for the Chicago Muskie.Show at Harper College.

As a way of leading into the winter show season around Chicago outdoors, I take another look at fishing friend Tomes as my column in the outdoors page of the Sun-Times today.

The Muskie Show runs Friday through next Sunday. For info, go to chicagomuskieshow.com.
