A new approach with new players for BP volleyball

By ADAM SHINDER For the Express BROADALBIN — In 2014, the Broadalbin-Perth High School girls volleyball team was one match away from being crowned New York State Class C champions.

Nobody can take what we accomplished away from us,’” Calvello said. &l ...

B-PCS boys taking strides toward top of Foothills

By adam shinder For the Express BROADALBIN — With four sophomores and two freshmen playing integral roles, Broadalbin-Perth boys soccer coach Brian Henry knew the 2014 season was a bit of a building year for the Patriots.  And in that building year, B-P still went 14-4-1 overall, came up a game short of a Foothills Council South Division title and reached the Section II Class B semifinals. Now that  those youngsters he relied on last year are a year older and wiser, Henry’ ...

Artificial lures can work better than live bait by Dick Nelson

Now I know why August is called it the “dog days.” It’s been so hot these past few weeks, even the dumbest hound has had enough sense to find a cool location and stay there. On the other hand, the heat and humidity doesn’t seem to bother some fishermen. Bill Hayes is one of those fishermen. The Mayfield angler caught a 43-inch, 21-pound pike while fishing the Mayfield Lake Pump House area last Sunday, and he did it while sitting in the sun. Hayes caught the fish on a live ...

Of course, anyone looking to take a ...

When it’s hot it’s hot, and when it’s not, it’s humid

If the recent rash of hot weather is any indication on what anglers can expect throughout the rest of the summer, they may want to take along an extra cooler of ice. But to paraphrase the late President Harry S. Truman, if you can't take the heat, get out of the stream. That may or may not be a heated statement considering on how the popularity of fishing has grown over the past five years. And, if you don't notice it where you wet a line, than you can certainly tell by the number of people that ...
