Tackle fondling 2018

It’s only February, and my fishing madness is peaking. This has been an especially brutal winter, for some reason. 
Oh, yeah. It’s been cold.
Really cold. 
One of my brook trout streams was technically fish-able on Sunday, Jan. 28. I decided to wet a line. It was either that or the Pro Bowl.
So on Saturday I began the annual tackle fondling procedures. January is very early for tackle fondling. 
I snipped old leaders off lines, cleaned lines, took a stab at sorting out fly boxes.

What you need to know to watch curling

NORFOLK — Somewhat surprisingly, curling, a sport that few Americans play or even watch on a regular basis, has become one of the more popular Winter Olympics sports for spectators.
It debuted as a full-medal sport at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Japan.
The Winter Games began Feb. 8 in Pyeonchang, South Korea, with hours of curling to watch. In fact, it was among the first sports in competition, beginning on Thursday before the opening ceremonies had even been held.

Triumph at Jumpfest despite rain

SALISBURY — The Salisbury Winter Sports Association’s annual Jumpfest weekend set attendance records, even with one full day of jumping canceled due to rain.
According to Willie Hallihan, the paid attendance on Friday night, Feb. 9, for target jumping and the Human Dogsled Race, was more than 300 people.
And on Saturday, with the air temperature around 40 degrees and a looming threat of rain, the event set what Hallihan believes is “a modern-day attendance record,” with a paid attendance of just under 1,400.

The excitement of Jumpfest will be Feb. 9 to 11

SALISBURY — The ski jumps are back again, at Satre Hill in Salisbury. 
From Feb. 9 to 11, The Salisbury Winter Sports Association (SWSA) will present the highlight event of the winter: the much-loved Jumpfest weekend. 
It all began when Norwegian immigrant John Satre saw a group of children trying to ski off a roof in Salisbury at the home of Judge Don Warner. Satre saw them, politely asked, “Do you mind if I yump?” and the Salisbury ski jump festival was born.

WINSTED — The Northwestern Regional 7 girls basketball team was riding high as February rolled in.
The Highlanders had won their first 16 games of the season and were number one in the state Class M tournament rankings. Of course, a lot has to happen yet, but Northwestern is only six games away from an unbeaten regular season and seems to be improving each game.
