While out here at the Denver Fly Fishing Retailer Show I got some up to the minute news. Last year Sharps of Aberdeen purchased Abel and Thomas & Thomas. Well Sharps of Aberdeen has just gone into receivership and the banks have taken over. Word has it that a golf company has now stepped in with the intent to purchase. Sure didn't take SOA long to run things into the ground. Lets hope Abel and T&T survive this and continue to offer a great product.
