Looking to cure cabin fever? The New York DEC will team up with Newsday Columnist and Associate Editor of On the Water Magazine, Outdoor Tom Schlichter, to guide participants in a free ice fishing seminar and clinic on Saturday, February 6 from Noon to 2 p.m. It will be held at the Brookhaven Town Beach on Lake Ronkonkoma. The event is in conjunction with the Town of Brookhaven Parks and Recreation Department and the I FISH NY program will provide free fishing rods on loan and bait. No registration is required and the event is open for all anglers ages 10 and up. Participants are encouraged to bring a chair or stool and may opt to bring their own fishing rod and equipment. If there is safe ice on Lake Ronkonkoma participants will get a chance to try their hand at ice fishing. For more information on this great event, call 631-444-0283.

Astron Boots by Guy Cotten

by Chris Grech

I've always been a big fan of the Guy Cotten line of foul weather gear. Their Astron Boots are made of tough PVC and are extremely comfortable, light and really keep your feet warm when the mercury drops. The addition of their quick drying foam liner helps keep your feet warm and add another level of comfort. The top rim of the boot has a gasket type of fit to keep water from splashing in. When the weather gets warmer I simply remove the liner which is also replaceable if it gets worn out. I've put many seasons on my pair and they are still going strong. The Guy Cotten Astron boots feature white non-slip, non-scuff soles that won't mark your deck and are available in blue and brown. Sizes available include 6, 7, 8, 9/10, 11/12, 13. From my experiences, I recommend getting one size larger than you normally wear so you can throw on a nice pair of merino wool socks during the colder months. Loose fitting boots will keep your feet warmer versus tight ones because that extra air pocket around your feet is a natural insulator. Comfortable, warm, dry feet allow you to fish longer and harder. Excellent boots that I would highly recommend!

$65 - Boots without liner
$20 - ExtraLiner
