Does anyone remember friendship?  Is it nothing
more than a mouse click on Facebook?  Sometimes
it seems like it, which is one reason to come and see
us.  Freindship still exists here,  it is still important.

It doesn't matter if you have 45 years
of experience. As long as a female
owns the shop,  
suppliers will always
practice discrimination
.  It still exists
today! And you thought there were
laws?

See the new Wetsox before your next Erie Steelhead

Specs,  Stipers,  Giant Redfish,  False Albecore.  These
pictures have nothing to do with our skill.  It's the
guide;
Neuse River Book now,  it fills up fast!
Thus humble let me live and
die,
Nor long for Midas' golden
touch;
If Heaven more generous gifts
deny,
I shall not miss them much, ---
Too grateful for the blessing
lent
Of simple tastes and mind
content!

FNF Jelly for the Blob Fly
Fishpond has purchased Tacky and they have
changed the boxes.  Never fear,  we have some
of the originals left

Chenille is our FNF Jelly!
Even though the virus has slowed us down a little, rod
sales have improved over last year.  We can still make
our donations To St. Judes Hospital which makes this
worth doing.  This is thanks to you, not us!
I always get a kick out of the rod shootouts.  The latest
one tells us that accuracy is built into the rod.  Then
why do we practice? In competition casting,  the caster
is awarded.  We should be awarding the rod.  In their
opinion,  the caster has nothing to do with accuracy.  
So,  we have to assume that the caster is perfect.  The
caster is God!
I am also supposed to be telling young people who are
working their way through college to spend $800.00 on
a fly rod instead.
Sometimes I will cast a rod 90ft.
when doing a demonstration I tell
the customer that they can do the
same thing because the potential is
in the rod!
Rod shootouts believe that the rod
does everything for you.  
You can't take the caster out of
the equation
.   It doesn't make
sense!
When your casting improves,  the
potential will be there waiting!
You don't reward the rod for winning
a casting contest,  you reward the
caster!!!
