    that's definitely a fisherman catcher...

    they have finally decided to dress like flies to attract the fooshermen to keep them indoors

    Yip, every day we get mails from around the world asking about what saddle hackles we have. They are prepared to double the price we have them listed at. But we are not prepared to sell our stock to the fashion trade, as we believe we need to protect the people who have supported us over the years.

    Yesterday, however, was the first time someone actual came into the shop and bought saddles.

    What I would like to know is what happens to the hackle after the fashion shows? Do they keep it, or merely throw it away? Maybe we could make a deal with them and buy it back for half price, sure it might smell a little of them ladies but I dont think the fishies would mind..??

    Maybe you guys at Frontier should sell the feathers to the girls and offer to buy it back from them half price when the fashion trend stops.. Then you sell them to poor guys like me ad I would gladly buy them from you!!
