The photos speak for themselves. Green, green, green! Won't be long before we are eating all the good stuff. Still plugging away at the flies, only about 500 left on the first order. Made a few pots, time to start heating my workspace and getting to it. Snow is taking it's time going, temps are still below normal. It is melting, but way behind what it should be. The days are so bright, stays light until almost 10:30! Nice.....

Yes!!! We actually went ice-fishing twice this past week. No wonder I am behind in pot making, flies and hats. After all the beautiful sunny days we picked the cloudy and windy ones to go down the lake. Ken brought his fish finder along.....totally annoying listening to the fish beep when you aren't even getting a bite!
The best part is eating lunch. And it wasn't fish either. First you ride a snow machine 20 kms down the lake, then you drill holes through almost three feet of ice, scoop out the ice chunks while standing in the overflow coming out of the hole, put in the fish finder, THEN you get to 'fish'. The second time we got a little brighter and brought our camping chairs. Our friend had a tent.......good thing as the wind was howling at 20 plus k. from the South. After about 5 hours Dave got a fish!!! My husband says it is the first one he has ever seen pulled out through the ice.
And can you believe this???? We are planning on more trips. Next time I am going to bring my book.
