Brookline, NH Ice Fishing Derby – Continued

Life on the ice is pretty interesting. As you can see, there are many ways for people to decorate their bob houses, from signs to flags to lettering. And there is much to do, besides fishing. People have to chop wood for their woodstoves and do maintenance on their bob houses. The ice freezes around them, requiring them to chop them free with axes by the end of the season. Cooking is a big part of the day. It is like tailgating for a sporting event or concert. And there is traveling around on various vehicles…more on that another day.

    you really gave us a feel for the personality of the different people that do this unique sport – and the flag hanging says much – I also like the artsy feel of the watch for sign (now I feel very cold for some reason)

    Thank you…There is a certain amount of individuality in buidling one’s bob house. I actually went back to that bob house for the watch for sign. I have a great shot from last year of a trailer with a flag over it and the wind has it straight out. If you get cold, you just go stand by the fire barrel for a bit…
