People walk in here and say: "Now this
is a fly shop"

comments and it encourages us and
makes us want to do more! We currently
stock around 75 fly rods and it takes a
couple of trips to see all of the fly tying
material we have.

Francis Bacon
The fact that the average caster can't bring out the full potential of a
$150.00 fly rod should tell you that fly rods have caught up to
technology and that
the overpriced fly rod is a thing of the past! I
don't need to make nor do I want to make $400.00 profit on a fly rod
We continue to see new people every week, which,  of course,  tells us
that we are still growing.  Believe me, we have done this against
overwhelming odds and you were certainly a big part of it. Fighting the
corruption and the adult bullies was also a large part of it.
We don't look at
the bottom line.
We do this to have programs for young people.  However,
there are some adult bullies in this business that only do it for the bottom
line.  Certainly, the root of all evil.
Come and try the Echo Boost rod.
