Well it all started at a mountain resort in central Idaho in 1981, I was at the age of 11. I sat down and watched a fishing fly being tied. That following christmas my mother got me a fly tying kit as a gift. Several months later there wasn't a fly I couldn't tie. That summer I started suppling the local stores with my flies that I tied (my mom and dad were my chaeffuers). Over the next couple of years store owners needed fishing supplies too, I begain to fill their needs. At that time I used to buy from stores like Payless Drugs and resale them to the local stores, several years later I was suppling Payless.
As I advanced through school I realized my heart was with fishing and hunting, I created my dream job of selling sporting goods. In the mid 1980's I started my first warehouse in my parents basement. By 1994 I rented my first real warehouse, after several years there I out grew the small warehouse and stepped up and got a larger warehouse.
Now with several employees, stocking 100's of stores and now Ebay, I still take my kids fishing every time I can (in the summer at least twice a week). Life is to short so take advantage of clear days and go fishing, because I will. Thank you! Richard
