Outdoors at Smith & Edwards

Pick your Passion...

Every year it's the same:

"Next spring I'll get out hiking & camping earlier."

"Next summer we're going to do more things as a family."

I'll remember to put in for a tag next year so I can get a deer in the fall."

Plan it! Get excited about it!

Bring out the passion you have for the things you want to do, so that you're ready with the right gear to reach that outdoor satisfaction.

We get that same pull to get out there. Here's what's new, what you need, for your big adventure.

Nothing beats Dutch Oven cooking...

Dutch ovens are their own reward.

Treat 'em right, oil them well, and they'll serve you for years.

People who don't get it might wonder why you lug a 10-pound piece of cast iron to the campsite. But then they taste the first bite, and then they understand. (And ask for seconds!)

A Bad Day of Fishing beats a Good Day at Work

You don't have to like fish to love fishing.

(Although we say smoked fish is the BEST!)

You just can't beat a day of fishing, whether you're fly fishing a stream like the North Fork, pulling tiger trout out of Uinta lakes, trolling Willard Bay, netting it up at the Cisco Disco, or keeping warm on 10 inches of ice with your pole ready to jig.
