Click Buttons Get Gear

Talented fishing poet, Matt Smythe, clued us in that Thomas and Thomas Fly Rods is planning to give away a fly rod once they hit 800 facebook likes, twitter followers, and Newsletter subscribers. Here's a link to the Blog post describing the details.

When we reach 800 likes on Facebook, 800 follows on Twitter and 800 subscribers to our monthly newsletter, we will draw one lucky winner from that pool. That winner will be able to select one rod from any line that is presently in the T&T catalog—except for bamboo. Our apologies to the T&T bamboo faithful. One rod from any line, in any weight and any length. Helix, Horizon II, NS5, SSS, TNT, Spey,Switch and even Heirloom glass lines are all fair game. From big salt to small stream, the choice is yours.

No Worries

What does Denver fly fishing retailer,Trout's Fly Fishing, think of Cabela's impending entry into the market? Read about it in their recent press release.

With 2 stores slated to open in 2013 in the Denver area, it is a given that Cabela’s will have a noticeable presence to businesses and consumers alike. “It is up to each individual business to decide how to react in situations like these, and I can understand how some may be fearful of what this brand will do to the local fly shop base” adds Ladd. “Yet this is not the first time Cabela’s has looked at the Denver area for a new storefront, and we have been actively planning for this inevitable event for years now. We feel we have a strong brand presence in Colorado, and I am comfortable that the level of expertise, quality customer service and amazing product selection we offer will only further our goal of being the premier fly-fishing resource in the area. Trout’s is a Denver and Colorado brand through and through, and we trust that this change will only make us stronger and more relevant to the local fly fishing
