Studio Lakeville to move fitness to Interlaken Inn

LAKEVILLE — Studio Lakeville is a beautiful building at the intersection of the roads to Millerton,  Salisbury and Sharon, in Lakeville. Once the old firehouse, with three large opening doors, now windows, the building was refurbished by contractor Seth Churchill.

Fishing for panfish in the grim mid-summer

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re having a drought.

Take a look at your nearest babbling brook. Pretty low, isn’t it?

Or check out the Housatonic River. Better yet, get in it without waders. It’s bathtub warm.

At least Mother Nature has cheesed it with the super-hot weather.

Gridlife drifts into Lime Rock

LIME ROCK — A new motorsports association, Gridlife, made its first appearance at Lime Rock Park in Salisbury on Friday, Aug. 19, and Saturday, Aug. 20.

Based largely in the Midwest, Gridlife had its first event in 2014, and has visited tracks countrywide including Road Atlanta and Willow Springs in California.

Introducing Mongo: Fixed line meets big fish

The last few years I have spent more and more time using the telescoping, fixed line, no-reel fly rods that come under the umbrella term “Tenkara.”

Devotees spend hours arguing the nuances and nomenclature for different kinds of fixed line rods, and since few of them speak Japanese I suspect they are still missing something.

Dog days come early to anglers

CORNWALL — The dog days are upon us, a lot sooner than usual.

The authorities have cut the flow into the West Branch of the Farmington River to a cold but meager 75 cubic feet per second, which means if you head over there prepare for long leaders and fine tippets.

Who is that cycling, sprinting barefoot triathlete?

SHARON — If you’ve seen an athlete cycling on local roads, dropping his bicycle, helmet and shoes at the side of the Housatonic Valley Regional High School track or other local soccer fields, and then sprinting barefoot, and then getting back on his bike to do it again, then you’ve seen local TeamUSA member Doug Landau training for his next race
