Ah yes a great Northern tradition ice fishing. Drill a hole in the ice and fish.
Some people were content to sit on the ice and fish

and sit and fish.
Others thought “It is cold and the wind howls. Let us build something to block the wind.”

Finally someone said. “A little shack would be nice.

When they thought. “A little company would be good.”

Then they made villages on the ice to fish and it was good.
Come join the ice-fishing village in Iron Bay.

Pleny of fishing holes drilled in the ice for you.
Build your own shack. (20 prim limit)
Build, fish, tell about the big fish that got away.
I am happy to announce the opening of Ahab’s Bane Shack in the ice-fishing village.
For all you drinking needs … at a price. Hot drinks cost extra.

Located next to Jimmy’s shack, who I am sure, will be my biggest customer.
It’s so convenient!
I can beat that old pirate’s prices and deliver right to your doorstep! Place your order to Gangplank on Ice and I will see to it personally!
How can you beat me in convenience I am 3 feet away from Jimmy? Ha ha ha.
The price does not seem to bother the good folk of the village.
*Counts the days earnings.
Run home little boy maybe Junie will give you some milk and cookies.
Outstanding photo parallels. Thank you Osric.
And thank *you* Captain Lupindo!
To further get you into the ice-fishing mood I present a clip from Grumpy Old Men.
In this great scene you get to see ice-fishing and a unique tour of the village.
