The Caddis Fly Shop (Good Service = Goodwill)

A few days ago, I lamented my G4 Simms Boots and the fit that had more than once contributed to my painfully hobbling some distance back to the rig in a slow progression of steps, sometimes wading. The boots just never fit right and for the money, I felt I was going to make it work. Well, I couldn’t. So yesterday, while in Eugene, I mentioned it to the Chris Daughters @ The Caddis Fly Shop he said bring them in and lets see what we can do. I wasn’t expecting much as I could not totally explain the odd fit I experienced once donning the boots. They looked fine, but fit unlike any other wading boots I had owned. Well, today I brought them in and I will just say that Lou Verdugo (always a prince) and Chris displayed the customer service and positive attitude that will forever garner my business when near that region. Excellent shop. Excellent Service. Excellent knowledge without attitude. I walked out with a pair of Simms Guide Boots that were a much better fit thanks to Lou & Chris. Oh, and I sprung for a new Airflo Tactical Skagit Compact @ 540 grains. Less whining now. OFFB too.

Chelitas Taqueria (Springfield, Oregon) Go There!

Well of course you can’t all go there, but I wish many of you could. A perfect storefront, one drives by without noticing, keeping one’s eye on the cars ahead with the approaching traffic signal. I noticed it the other night. It was late. I saw the lights lowered and the ladies sitting at a table, probably resting after a long day. Family run restaurants are like that. A dream, a vision of success tested each day upon who will notice? Who will spread the word to others to try it. Well, if you are in the Eugene/Springfield/I-5 Corridor…consider a stop in downtown Springfield. I went back today and it was great!

Gracie, Natalie and Mari opened Chelitas several months ago at 321 Main St., Springfield, Oregon (just east of Pioneer Parkway Ave.). The food is fresh, inexpensive and served in a pleasant room by sweet mujers.This is a pleasant restaurant that I will be certain to visit when coming back down from the McKenzie River, the Middle Fork or the Town Run. Please support their dream via sit down dining or take out.
