Snowy adventures

During the winter months, ice forms over the once-warm waters, prompting an exciting shift from the traditional angling techniques of fly fishing to the exhilarating sport of ice fishing. As the estate is blanketed in light snow, skating over the frozen lake becomes a delightful pastime, filling the crisp winter air with a sense of adventure and magic.
