    Sorry. I feel you have a rather obvious agenda, and Google, looking for opportunities to "enlighten" people. Never trust anyone who says "hey, I don't know what's going on. But let me ask you this..." If I want that I'll listen to glenn beck. I'm callin' provocateur shenanigans...

    You could of course prove me wrong and be a solid contributor in fishing threads... Short of that, I'm stickin' with shenanigans...

    "They did go to Cabela's for a short period" < "has kept its distribution only at the pro-shop level"

    I just changed my will. If anything happens to me, my local fly shop will be taken care of.

    Costco is notorious for stocking items that they are NOT allowed to sell. They do this with Underarmour all the time. They purchase huge lots of items though other legitimate dealers, and receive the order in a back ally.... My Underarmour rep has personally went in there and purchased these items with his business Under armour Credit card to send to corporate. It then is out of the store. I know people who work at Costco that have told me this goes on all the time. Sad when it hurts the small local
    retailers....

    Justin, just a word of warning. I'm seeing a political view coming from your posts. Skirting with board guidelines.

    I see the Orvis store in NYC is selling Simms gear. Waders, vests, boots, etc....thought that a bit strange.
