Don't Poke Holes in My Fun 

Pin It

What a pleasant surprise to read about my favorite pastime, ice fishing, in City Weekly [“Ice Spy,” March 7]. No politics, no injustices and no references to John Saltas’ hallowed Greek culture.

For a self-proclaimed novice, Katherine Pioli conveyed not only the solitude, but also the fine balance between excitement and relaxation when it’s just you, the elements and that 6-inch cylinder of water.

The package of perch fillets I’m dropping off will put those pan-fried trout of hers forever on the back burner. In addition, I make a standing offer for a free hard-water trip next winter, perhaps for white bass and bluegill at Utah Lake, or for jumbo perch at Echo or Starvation.

Afterward, she can write one of those big cover-story exposés on fishing through the ice, and then let the readers try to poke holes in it.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
