Smith & Edwards Monthly Roundup

June Roundup: Summer Fun with Rodeos, Spices, and Local Finds

- posted by Rose Marion

As part of the web team at Smith & Edwards, I’m always learning about the gear we carry & cool tips for: rodeo, hiking, target shooting, & so much more. And did I mention I’m building Pinterest boards for all of these too? (follow us!)

Instead of keeping all my cool finds to myself, I’m starting a monthly series to feature these great tips & ideas we come across as my team & I build the online Smith & Edwards experience! Leave a comment and let me know what you love or want to share with our readers!

  • Our fishing guy Chris says Willard Bay is a MUST-GO! “Walleye and Wiper don’t like the heat either. To get to the bottom where they are, use a bottom bouncer and a Kokanee Creek Tackle Walleye worm harness,” Chris says.
  • Remember you can get a Utah state parks pass so your family can hang out at Willard, Bear Lake, and many more of Utah’s beautiful parks for just a flat yearly rateclick here to get yours from the Utah DNR.
  • Special Willard Bay Tip: Remember your bug spray!
