Photography: Fort Rock (Ancient Landmark)

FORT ROCK HISTORY

I recently made a promise to myself that I would stop, pullover, turn around, turn off to explore sites that I would have previously driven right on by in a rush to get somewhere. Schedules, the clock, the next destination, commitments all conspire to make me push from one place to another and, of course, I miss out. Such was the case with Fort Rock on previous outings. Not this time, I took the turn off and did what I had always wanted to do…take a photo.

Fly Fishing Industry: Costco, Cabelas v. The Shop

SwittersB

This industry piece re Costco is interesting to read, especially if you do honestly support the small shop. Pay particular attention to the comments as well, as there is much to be digested there also: “It’s time for manufacturers to quit making the industry something it isn’t and truly become partners once again with specialty stores. Fly fishing specialty stores have little to no say in marketing products. Manufacturers control the product, the place, the packaging, the promotion, and the price. The same rules applied to specialty retailers need to be followed by the manufacturers at all times or their credibility is lost. Allowing products to be slipped through the cracks is inexcusable. Mass producing products that aren’t needed and turning a blind eye to sales that are “too good to be true” doesn’t do anything towards nurturing a fragile industry.”  Jerry Lappier

By the article, if true, the fly fishing manufacturers/industry have indeed lost their way. So too have they over priced many components of the sport. Seriously over priced! Get real. Kudos to those providing mid-level quality products. A reckoning for all of us, it seems, is coming.
