She Went Catchin'!


September 1, 2021

Hooked roughly a 10 1/2 inch cutthroat trout using an Abu Garcia - Black Max 6'6" pole with a double Power Bait egg setup. A garlic red salmon egg stacked on over a garlic rainbow glitter power egg. This fish was a fun fight and I was appreciative of the sacrifice made for the game and the food it provided.

Kelsee Haws shows the fish that she caught in Luna Lake; it later became part of a delicious meal. Her outdoors experience is typical of many throughout the state and one of those that we can continue to enjoy even if pandemic restrictions return. (Please, no!)

In fact, a whole new group of women anglers will probably be inspired by the great program "Becoming An Outdoors Woman" to be held in Prescott, Ariz., later this month. And, fishing is just one focus of the event; it includes hiking, archery, outdoor cooking, etc. - literally a buffet of outdoor experiences and learning to savor .

And, as many wonderful opportunities that our outdoors offer, there are also dangers in the wild. Margie Anderson offers a great summary of what to watch for and what to do if you encounter a problem. She ends her article with a note about a basic kit that she and her husband take with them whenever they leave their vehicle and set out on foot. Great advice!

So, as always, continue to enjoy and treasure what the outdoors offers you. However, be safe and responsible as you do.

From lake to plate in 3 hours my wife and I completed this beautiful fishing tradition. We cooked our catches in a tin foil wrap on a little portable propane grill. The fish was seasoned with half a lemon, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper. Stuffed in the fish are slices of lemon and butter to keep the fish moist when cooked in the tin foil. When the tin foil was opened and the fish was placed on the plate my fork literally melted through the fish and the meat just fell on to the plate it was absolutely an amazing dinner provided by nature that evening!
