    When we visited the area a couple of years ago, we went to that shop and it was very enjoyable and helpful. I pray for his health.

    It's too bad one of you PT guys can't run it for a while to bridge his health issue (if that's an option) or work out a transfer of ownership. Sounds like a shop with value. I can imagine though that the internet stores put a big hurt on the small town shops.
    Good luck to Mike.

    Not often there but as the kids grow older, we will be spending more time not far from PT in the summers.....I remember the first time setting foot in the shop. Stumbled upon it Thank God during a "getaway" with the wife pre kids....Savior and great materials, knowledge.

    Would be a dream job for the right guy/gal....hope Mike gets well and hope his shop sticks around...

    I visited PT Angler this afternoon and the place was busy. Mike seemed to be in good spirits and had plenty of plans for the future. I will miss his quality flies all tied in the shop.
