Tis the season when we celebrate the coming of our Savior. The Southern Trout family wishes everyone a blessed Merry Christmas.
Our email inbox has been stuffed with greetings and announcement of Holiday specials by virtually every fly shop in the South. If going to the malls, or to my personal favourite, Walmart, is a bit too kinetic for you to complete your Christmas shopping, then please allow me to suggest you get off of the beaten path to visit your local fly shops.
Fly fishers rarely need a lot of prompting to enter these adult toy wonderlands. Judging from the flyers and such arriving here, I believe you will be pleasantly surprised at the great sales and marked down bargains. Also too, the record-setting drought and wild fires were not kind to the fly shop business. While taking advantage of savings on dealer exclusives like Simms, Winston and Sage, your patronage of your favorite fly shop is the life blood of these very special fly fishing assets.
The next newsletter will be in the wee days of 2017. The team has earned a few days of (without pay of course). Again, Merry Christmas.
