G.I. Joe Sells Fishing Equipment

GI Joe's

In our seemingly never ending quest to mine shiny gems from the bowels of the internet, we are always on the lookout for new sources of fly fishing bargains. Tonight we have managed to dig up webmerchant G.I. Joe's Sports, Outdoors and More. No my friend, they do not peddle articulated, and unshaven plastic army figurines. Instead they carry fly fishing equipment and much, much more.

In case you wonder how this web vendor has escaped the wrath of the Mattel company's corporate lawyers, this G.I. Joe was started in 1952 by a "clever pilot" just home from WWII. An enterprising young man, he sold surplus sleeping bags for $1.50.

Momma always taught us that you should never come to a party empty handed and G.I. Joe must know this as well, since he has brought you a coupon for 20% off any single item. Click the banner in this post to take advantage of his good nature and check out the site.

GI Joes is a northwest (Oregon) icon. They have 20+ brick and mortar stores and do a good job carving out their niche...
