Mudbugs of the World! – UNITE on my Fine Chinette

Tailwaters Anniversary Party and Mudbugs Denton

It looks like crawdads are in season around here! There are two bug-based events going on the next two weekends. The first, this Saturday at Riprock’s just off dilapidated Fry Street this Saturday, and the second Uptown Dallas at Tailwaters next Saturday. These aren’t normally the kinds of events I find myself at because the labor – reward quotient has never been right when it comes to crawdads.

I mean, sure they’re tasty, suck the heads … yada, yada, but maybe this time with enough refreshments flowing, I can achieve a cultural balance of effort and reward. OK, the crawdads may just be an afterthought. One thing for sure, I will not make Tailwaters this year as I am booked to shoot that same day. This Saturday is looking very promising though.

Have a great time May 2nd. at the Thirteenth Annual Mudbug Boil in Denton at 1211 W. Hickory. Or, if Uptown Dallas, and the preeminent Dallas Fly Shop – Tailwaters, is your cup of bug broth, don’t miss a day full of events, specials and products – May 9th.

    By the way there is ongoing research into the ability of mudbugs to prevent swine flu – especially significant are the properties of mudbug head juice.
