As many of you know, we hosted a Norfork Lake Chamber of Commerce fishing media event here at Mockingbird Bay Resort, sponsored by Plano / Frabill, where Arkansas State Tourism invited a handful of awesome outdoor professional writers and pro staff to come to Norfork Lake and experience some stellar fishing, thanks to local guides, some out-of-state guides thanks to Rick Pierce of Bass Cat Boats and the Mountain Home Chamber of Commerce. A good time was had by all! Fishing was great! Frank and Val got to go out on a couple of occasions and enjoy the lake as well. It was a 4-day event topped off with a delicious fish fry and live music by the band Coyote Union. Go to Mockingbird Bay Resort's Facebook page for more photos -- I'll be gradually posting more.

Finally, it is feeling and looking like Spring is here to stay! The daffodils are up in full force. The tulips are not out yet -- but their greens are about 5 inches tall...so it won't be long now. I noticed yesterday that the redbuds have little pink buds forming, so they'll be next. After the redbuds, the dogwoods pop -- and THAT is a sight to behold around here! Gorgeousness! :) Hope it's warm wherever you are! :)

A bit chilly, I'd say! Record cold temps across the region made for a very cold looking Norfork Lake. The wind whipped across the lake causing plumes of steam to waft high into the air like a giant boiling cauldron. What a great day to read a book in front of a crackling fireplace!

Fall foliage update: Colors are definitely coming. They seem later than last year, in my opinion, by a week or so. Reds are prominent in the undergrowth, with some dark reds/rust and muted yellows showing up in the trees. Night temperatures continue to drop, so things should be poppin' here soon.
