Unlimited Hall Pass

Katy spent last week with Connor in Montana. I took the opportunity to fish as much as I could. I ended up fishing 6 of the 8 days she was gone (along with two days at the Wasatch Tying Expo).
Here is a few pictures of my week (a few of these are actually from two weeks ago, but I fished the same area last week too.)

I ended Thursday with a double double from In & Out.

This is an average Brown from a stream I fished prior to attending the Wasatch Tying Expo.

I really enjoyed the expo. I met a bunch of great tyers and met up with a few friends (Jed and Kyle). Thanks for the rubber legs Cheech. I hope to attend next year. I went overboard buying tying material to try out the new patterns I learned and also picked up a pair of used Force Fins for $40!
I had a few mishaps during the week also. I lost my dry-bag I keep my waders in out of the back of my truck. (Blew out unmonitored on I-15) I about lost my new Dan Craft Sig V 3wt TWICE! First time when I set it down to unhook a fish and the river washed it away (I chased after it and busted up my shin. But finally got all pieces) and secondly, I went to string up my rod and the tip was missing. I traced my steps back towards my truck and luckily found it. I broke my Hardy Princess reel being a dumb-ass. (tried to dislodge fly from branch with butt of rod and slammed reel into a rock...didn't even get the fly!) When I took my waders off, there was a hole in the crotch of waders. It looked like I pissed my pants. I didn't have time to go back to my mom's house to change, so i rolled to Expo with windows down and vents pointed at my crotch. Oh...and I didn't win anything in the raffles at the expo (but the money went to good cause anyways).

I made a few batches of wings throughout the week. Sticky, messy, and delicious!

Coat wings in corn starch and deep fry

simmer following ingredients in saucepan...
1 cup Frank's Red Hot (more if you want it spicier, less if you're a puss)
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs butter
1/4 cup Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce
Once the wings are fried, take out of hot oil and on paper plate with paper towel. Put the drained wings in a container with sauce and shake until coated. Eat and enjoy!


  1. When the wife's away you play? Only thing you played with was yourself.

  2. just shot my blog's PG rating to a PG-13. I'm not the one who has to be celibate right now Mr. Hairy palms.

  3. Touche. Speaking of wings there is a place in st george i just found out about called wing spot. I no joke have eaten there 3 times this week. It's really good.

  4. I want to go to "Tim and Allen's" in Hurricane and get some T&A.
