New Boots for Hiking the Bonneville Shoreline

This spring, I went up to the Rainbow Gardens parking lot, and instead of taking Birdsong Trail like usual, my boyfriend and I hiked up to the Bonneville Shoreline trail! It was breathtaking getting to see behind the water pipe that goes over 12th street as it heads up to Ogden Canyon, and we got to meet some fun dogs and watch as people made their way further up the mountains above us. If you’re looking to hike or camp in the Uintas or Northern Continue reading →

Our New Huk Fishing Shirts Help you Fish Longer

That’s pronounced “Hook” Gear. I know, it doesn’t really seem to be spelled that way, but that is how you pronounce it! I promise! Clothing is not usually the top of my checklist when I am getting ready for a fishing trip! In fact, most of the time my wife gives me a funny look and asks, “Are you really going out looking like that?” To which my normal response was something along the lines of “Well, the fish don’t care what I look like!” Continue reading →

All About Jeans: Women’s Jeans Guide

If you’ve ever been shopping for women’s jeans then you understand exactly how frustrating it can be. Either they fit your waist and hips and you feel like you’re going to split the leg seams with every step, or they fit your thighs and hips and gap at the back of the waistband. There is just no winning, or so it would appear. What you need to do is identify what you like and steer clear of things that don’t match up with that. As Continue reading →

Bring New Life to these Antique Glass Insulators!

While cleaning up the famous Smith & Edwards surplus yard this year (our first “spring cleaning” in several decades…!) – we found these AWESOME antique glass insulators. Antique Glass Insulators While you used to see these insulators on poles across the country, you’re much more likely to find them in museums or collector’s stashes nowadays. We have mostly the beautiful clear glass insulators in stock, as well as some beautiful tea-colored glass. The striking blue color of insulators are rarer – I wish we had Continue reading →

We’re getting Cabin Fever… are you?

When I’m not at Smith & Edwards, taking photos is a huge hobby of mine. I’ve been in Utah for 6 years, and while I’ve loved wandering backroads for barn photos and along the river parkways for macros and mushrooms, I’ve never ventured up the trails for some stunning shots. Til now! I’ve got Cabin Fever and I bet you do, too. Come explore the hikes & trails of Weber county with me! Mike Vause has picked out some gear for me, and I want Continue reading →

Coby makes his calls with strategy in mind: Small Bull, Medium Bull, Big Bull, and of course the Cow in pink (so you don’t get mixed up in the field!). Just watch him give us an elk calling sample! At these prices, you can get the whole elk Continue reading →
