Tenkara Fishing
Body: 
Lawrence goes Tenkara fishing in some small mountain streams with avid fisherman and guide, Bill Whitehair. Tenkara is an ancient Japanese fly fishing method that uses a light telescoping rod and no reel.  The  lightness of the rod enables the anglar to feel every movement of these small Brook trout and creates a unique sporting experience.  See why Tenkara is an easy, inexpensive and fun way to get into fly fishing.

Trail Cutting / Back Country Skiing
Body: 
 We join a team of Vermonters and some out of staters to do some prescribed cutting on National Forest land. Agencies are pairing up with back country skiers to teach them  cutting methods that are healthiest for the forests  and animal habitat. In addition to helping our forest thrive, ski enthusiasts get  a nice stash of wilderness trails when the snow comes.
 
We join some of the trail cutting crew on Brandon Gap to enjoy the fruits of their labor and explore some back country skiing.
