Sportsman's Warehouse recently opened a store near here in Medford. I guess just after Thanksgiving. Well today I made my first visit there. Wow, very impressive. Lots of fishin gear, and virtually every other outdoor sport as well. The fly tying area is very well stocked, although with some brands I never saw before. Their prices are better than most other suppliers around here, (GI Joes, Oregon Outdoor Store, McKenzie Outfitters)
I hear they blew McKenzie out of the water, and they closed their Medford store. I haven't been ther since just before Christmas, so I didn't know til yesterday. Too bad the big boys always seem to shut some of the smaller local favorites down.
It's a pretty good store, though, till just the last few years, we didn't have many local places to get tying stuff. I think the new surge in flyfishing interest has been good fo that.
Anyway, I dropped about 30 bucks and came away with lots of stuff to tie on hooks......
