Friday Feast

While we still argue that Superbowl Sunday makes for a great fly fishing day, pending weather in your locale, it’s impossible to deny that this weekend has evolved into something of a national food holiday. Like many of you, we’ve been to Superbowl events serving everything from pretty pedestrian pizza to you-name-the-meat chili to real-deal, […]

After mentioning him a couple of weeks ago, friend JB in Ogden sent over another Vietnamese cuisine inspired recipe, what he’s christened his Saigon Sidewalk Pork Chops. JB has spent a fair amount of time in rural Vietnam over the past twenty years doing medical work for a part of each summer or fall, and […]

She Who Must Be Obeyed and I just arrived back in Montana in the wee hours this morning; it’s almost unspeakably delightful to be back in home country once again. While January days in the mid-60s (or warmer) have allowed an unprecedented fajita taco run back in Texas the past few weeks, when we picture […]

When I was a kid growing up little did I know that cultural and culinary history was being made right before my eyes. Starting in the late 60s and into the 70s a cultural tug-of-war developed along the Texas Coast. Even as a grade- and later middle-schooler spending several glorious summer weeks at my grandfather’s […]

Talking to friends back home in Montana and Wyoming this week it’s been easy to hear the quiet resignation in their voices – the Holiday season is done and now there’s anywhere from three to five months of potential winter staring ‘em in the face. Most take it with reasonable humor, though by this time […]

Fly fishers (and other good folks) around the world enjoy a host of widely varied New Year’s Day food traditions, everything from quickly eating 12 grapes at midnight in Spain to rice pudding in Scandinavia to lentils in Italy to roast suckling pig in Cuba (and a lot of other places as well). With roots […]

A very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season to all our Chi Wulff compadres near and far this morning. We trust Santa was generous to you and yours this year and that you’re getting outside with family and friends today (or soon). But there’s more good food to enjoy as well. Bowing to Holiday food tradition, […]

T’is the season for the Holiday Shindig (for those whose vocabulary doesn’t regularly include the use of ‘shindig’, it means a large, lively party, esp. one celebrating something.) Interestingly I’ve been waiting now for several weeks to help out with what will be one of the most interesting – and damned tasty – holiday party […]

The Holiday Season always seems to be a time to feed big crowds, whether it’s a gathering of the famdamnily, fishing compadres, the office, store or shop crew or just gathering with friends. Everybody needs to take time to put your feet up, dig into some good grub and take a break from the hustle […]

After a nearly 11-inch rain over the long Thanksgiving weekend, having the sun finally come back out and temps warm back into the high 50’s has felt like one of those Montana spring weeks when winter finally breaks and hope of summer dry fly mornings begins to creep back into consciousness. My fly fishing daydream […]

Don’t you find it interesting that very often the best fly fishers you see in action do things differently than the rest of us? If the approach to fly fishing the majority of fishers take is deemed to be the conventional one, at times the really talented guys and gals often apply an unconventional strategy […]

In the (just over) seven years we’ve been messing around with Chi Wulff, there’s never been a window when we’ve received more incredible recipes from readers than over the past three or four months. We’re obviously more obsessed with fly fishing, food and tasty adult beverages than we should be, though it’s been unbelievably gratifying […]

A new friend we’ve recently met was down chasing redfish out of Rockport a few weeks ago, trickling a stream of pictures my way of decent-sized redfish and specks teased to the kayak mostly around sunrise every blasted day he was down there. There were no absolute trophies but plenty of damn-that-really-looks-fun fish, though I […]

If I were to be banished in exile to an island prison, along the lines of Napoleon on Elba, and were told I could only bring along one protein to dine on for the remainder of my days (or until escape), I’d probably choose chicken and a trusty Weber kettle grill to cook it on. […]

Fall is such a magnificent time for those of us who enjoy being and doing outside. I know we’re not the only ones who think that, in the changing light of fall (most notable to our clan in the Northern Rockies), rivers, cricks and streams look just a little clearer, trout are brighter, and leaves […]
