    Semi rural...correct sir. I know Amazon well, my wife sells there...not sure if she still is. We have the prime account. Honestly I never even thought they had FF stuff, I always consider them last. I'll have to check out their prices.
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

I think I remember how I did it...but I won't know until I get back out west.

    Amazon does nothing for local jobs. People need work here too even if it's not much. I've been known to gladly spend more at local places when possible.

    Pssst...

    The economy is global.

    But you and I have nothing local...if you mean within a 10 minute drive from home.

    The most local we have is the fly shop in Boulder Junction (not open in winter), the fly shop in Green Bay or one out of Madison.

    Try Hook and Hackle, The first order of each year gets 10% off, and vets get 10% off every order. I have found that Indian hen capes are just fine for soft hackle flies, and they are very inexpensive.

    Okay, let me be blunt Richie Farino has a fly shop. If I know him, he will have a ton of materials for sale.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    There's a name from the past. What was the name of the store he was with? Urban Angler?

    I agree with Comic and that's the only time I'll say that. Richie's new shop is District Angling: http://districtangling.com/

    I order from either Richie or Charlie at Charlie's fly box: http://www.charliesflyboxinc.com/

    I know both of them and support them.

    He left them and opened his own store. It just opened.
