Dan and Nancy have been working on the preseason process which entails all sorts of projects: inventory (with 300,000 flies that takes a while); shopping (we have fun doing that); and new ideas for technology.
We ordered tons of cool new stuff including many new fly patterns. Dan will have to figure out where to locate them in our shop. Nancy ordered more clothing continuing her pursuit to find cute fishing attire for woman and adding to the men’s. Fishpond has a number of new fun items in their accessories selections for 2008. There are a number of new gadgets for vests. Somebody keeps thinking of new stuff. Dan is working on custom rods this winter and has been designing new fly patterns both for trout and for the salt.
The big project is our effort to work on our web site with fishing reports and adding an online shopping cart. We will also be installing a point of sale system in our retail store. We expect much of the work to be done by early March, sooner if we are lucky. Keep checking our site.
We had another good year and want to thank all our customers for your support and for the fun experiences we shared in the store and on the phone this year. We hope to provide more fun in 2008. Remember, if you need something you can just call us at 406-682-7525. We can walk through the shop and look for your items and ship them out to your home or business.
Have a great holiday season!
Dan and Nancy
