Today has been a fun day. Around lunch time Jimmy left the shop to receive his bi-annual haircut. “It was a good move,” said Jim Sr. “He was starting to look like one of those hippies!” Jimmy looks really nice and clean cut. I joked with him that he is now BYU-Idaho approved. As far as appearance goes I really can’t say much since I started growing out my beard in early September. The original plan was to grow a beard until Moose (my fishing, and hunting partner) and I found, shot, and retrieved our first wild pheasant. We have had our chances this season but at no fault of Moose, we have yet to seal the deal… I’m just a bad shot! So the beard continues, at least until my wife tells me I need to cut it off.
on to the business side of the shop. We have replaced our Lagartun Oval tinsel with a more economic oval tinsel that is made by Uni-Thread. The reason we decided to make this change was becasue Lagartun raised the price to $8 a spool. We will still stock a small limited supply of Lagartun Oval Tinsel. As always if we don’t have exactly what you need we can do a special order. We also brought in a new landing net with an extendable handle that has a fish ruler built into the net. This is a nice feature becasue you will be able to see the “true” length of your fish without having to touch or remove the fish from the water. These nets are perfect for any angler, and will make a wonderful Christmas Gift. They come in a boat, pontoon boat and wading size.
