    I”ll take two of thse Caddis Fly Shop McKenzie fly rods @ $42.00 each, quite the deal!!!!!

  2. Derek Johnson says:

    Great article on the beginnings of the shop, and even more fun to look at the advertisement . Do you still have any $15 Wheatley boxes, or $79 Hardy Perfects hidden in the back somewhere?

  3. Joe Palanuk says:

    That deluxe wooden fly tyers box is actually designed to open in the “proper position.” Should find someone locally to make a few of those, at that price!
