Yesterday we went x-country skiing at the Lincoln Woods trail in New Hampshire. It is a good place to go for the first outing as you only have to pay to park ($3). The snow was excellent but the track was trampled by snowshoers that didn't read the sign at the begining of the trail. The sign is the biggest one there but needs to be bigger I guess. The snow and the weather made for a great day however.

Last night the fly tying club I belong to (United Fly Tyers, MA) had their January meeting. We usually meet on the first Thursday of the month. Since the first Thursday fell on January first we had the meeting a week later. Fred Kretchman was the speaker and he told us a lot of information about bamboo fly rods, the construction, use and how to deternine a good one was discussed.

Our club will be having a 50th anniversary gala in March (on the 21st). It is the oldest fly tying club, and we hope to have a big turnout. There will be lots of auction items, including artwork and door prizes.

This will be the first post to this blog. It will contain information on Weather/Climate, Birdwatching, and Fly tying. I belong to clubs that feature all the above items and will talk about events that occur with each. Stay tuned I guess?
