    It would be funny if you reminded people of your used, foreign made plastic reels for sale in this thread, and got defensive about how important it is to buy local and buy American.

    Judging by the amount of gear he goes through, he supports every fly shop on the East Coast and the aftermarket at the same time.

    Mac, got anything in 9wt for sale?

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    Did I say buy American? I said buy from your local fly shop. Pretty much everything I have is from a local fly shop. Most of it happens to be American made. So what's your point GB.

    I'm not surprised judging by the crappy flies you tied for me for North Carolina you should sell your fly tying equipment

    What were they? I don't ever recall sending you flies, and, by all means, if I did, I would have made damn sure they were super crappy....
