Since this is a long weekend for most people and a holiday at that, Memorial Day, I thought it appropriate to post up something that will most likely happen to a lot of people this weekend.

Those who go fishing will most likely snag up a time or two and if not, they are dang lucky.  Several years ago when the Willard Bay was way low, I went tripping around the shoreline looking for treasures and I found quite a few.

Things like broken fishing rods, lost items over the sides of boats (most were worthless), a headlamp that worked after I got the sand out of the inside of it and put in new batteries,  a portable 3 step boat ladder, two small 10 pound anchors…you get the idea…neat stuff.  But the most incredible thing I found I put on my garage wall for a day when I could do something else with it.

Well, yesterday I did something else with it.  First off I went to the local Deseret Industries thrift store and found a really cool letter and key holder, the kind that has a cork side piece for putting notes on.  I thought it would make a nice display case for my masterpiece.

Here it is!


So, you are probably unfamiliar with the cave at this time and won’t recognize what has been added.  This has been added:


I probably won’t use the letter holders or the key hooks and so it will be just another “picture” hanging on my otherwise bare walls.  It sure is nice to have a room where I can plant anything I want, anywhere on the wall, high, low or in between.

So, this is my best find to date and I doubt I’ll find anything better than this.


A nice tangle of crank baits, spoons, jigs, sinkers, line and hooks.  Class!

    You didn’t find that in the bay, that came off of the island at the pond… and most of those lures were mine!

      Not true! I found it at the Bay the day I walked the old road bed taking GPS readings of the breaks and Mom and I picked up trash!
