Notes from the North Woods

Steve Harris ponders whether to continue to Moose Pond, or to turn back.  Old age and wisdom, soon sent him on the trip back home.

Armchair Angling Adventures

While there are many anglers who simply can’t wait for ice out, there are a few lucky long-rodders who simply refuse to quit when the local lakes and streams are socked in by ice and snow. Where to they go for their thrills? To an armchair of course, preferably at the annual Drake Flyfishing Film Tour.

This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, March 23 beginning at 7 p.m. at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts and as always it will feature a collection of films that will transport audiences to the beautiful places where trout can be found. The Drake Festival is a benefit event sponsored by the Tri-Lakes Chapter of Trout Unlimited to aid in the protection and improvement of local and statewide coldwater fisheries. For tickets and information please contact, Wiley's Flies at 891-1829 or Jones Outfitters at 523-3468.
