My Last Post

By Frank Galusha
Dear Outdoor Buddies,
I am retiring today, December 31, 2015. After four score and two I have decided to direct my energy toward my wife, Jean, and the rest of my family here and in Idaho, Texas and North Carolina. Of course, I will also be pursuing my favorite hobbies of fishing, hunting and writing!

I will miss being at the helm of enormously. Owner, Chad Woods, who purchased the website in October of 2014 and who also owns NorCal.FishReports and, is now editor and publisher. Articles, columns, other contributions and questions should be directed to him at He can be reached at 775-220-3439.

In signing off, there are hundreds of people I have to thank. It has been an honor to work with my associates and the many writers, columnists, photographers, designers, website developers, advertisers and others who have contributed in one way or another to MyOutdoorBuddy over the past ten years. Most of all I want to thank our readers -- and there are thousands of you out there -- who have made it a habit to visit MyOutdoorBuddy regularly. Together we created a website of, by and for those who love the outdoors in Northern California and Southern Oregon. Of that I am extremely proud.

I look forward to seeing many of you in the field, the marshes or on the water in the years ahead.

Happy New Year and best personal regards,

Frank Galusha
