The Women Ice Angler Project has added the eighth angler to round out the team for 2018—Krissie Mason!
Mason, of Savage, Minnesota, is an adventurous outdoor spirit, food enthusiast, and farm-girl who supports a field-to-fork wild-food chain, and especially enjoys expanding pantries and stretching game and fish palates with delicious recipes. “There’s nothing like some fresh air, a plate of good food and a cup of smoky campfire coffee to turn a stranger into a friend,” said Mason who is excited to join this great team of women ice anglers. “Let’s cook good food together and take some fun photos along the way.” Mason is an award-winning photographer and writes for Outdoor Life Magazine, OutdoorLife.com, OutdoorHub.com, Ruffed Grouse Society Magazine, Deer & Deer Hunting Magazine, Pheasant Forever/Quail Forever, and several additional websites.
Recently, Mason donned the cap of Editor of Horizon’s Magazine, a bi-monthly publication of the Association of Great Lakes Outdoor Writers (AGLOW). “When I was a small child, I was taught how to shine and pluck nightcrawlers and how to hook live squirming leeches onto homemade spinners with a number 4 Aberdeen hook by letting it suck my thumbnail,” said Krissie as she reminisced about growing up in Minnesota’s land of 10,000 lakes. Mason is thrilled to join the WIAP gals in Otter Tail County, home to 1,000 lakes of its own. “Mother and Dad were excellent fishermen,” said Mason. “I look forward to joining these lovely ladies on an adventure that includes great food, too. It’s everything I love together.”
Not only will WIAP followers enjoy Mason’s recipes for panfish and walleye the gals will be targeting, but fans and sponsors alike will treasure the beautiful photography Mason shoots. “She’s definitely got a creative eye with the camera,” added founder and organizer Barb Carey. “We’re looking forward to the great photos she’ll bring and that’s one of our big goals for WIAP—incredible photography for our sponsors and their needs with social media and marketing.”
