• Ice shelters now offer thermal linings

    by  • January 24, 2013 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    A new range of ice shelters made by Frabil now includes a five-wall thermal insulation. The range covers two-angler shelters up to its Headquarters model, which it claims will accommodate six fishermen. Wish I’d had something like this, the first time I went ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota (see picture), when everyone else had huts with heaters, TV and even beds. More information from Frabil.


    Editor and publisher of Classic Angling magazine. Founder member of UK Angling Writers' Association and current chairman. Former winner of Writer of the Year. I wrote a weekly angling column for The Independent for 23 years, having previously written columns for The Guardian and Sunday Mirror. If it swims, I'll fish for it: marlin or mackerel, trout or tench, salmon or snook. I've written several books on fishing, from one for the Duke of Edinburgh's award to the notorious Catchmore Sharks (don't look at the pictures) and Bob Nudd's autobiography, How to be the World's Best Fisherman. I love exotic travel for fishing (been to Mongolia and Ecuador, the Great Barrier Reef and Arunachal Pradesh) and wish I could afford to do such trips more often. My favourite fish? Anything with fins, though I have a special love for mahseer, and I'm chairman of The Mahseer Trust.
