Default Re: Local Fly Shop or Buy Online?

My "local" fishing is a 2 - 3 Hour drive from the urban area I live in. There are 2 shops in my city but my relationships are with the destination shops where I drive or fly to fish. While all here on this forum are "Internet" folks, I feel strongly about supporting the shops where I fish and find them very helpful to me as well. They will all be gone, many of my smaller old favorites already are, if we don't shop there. I appreciate the "free fly line" web shop offer...it is unlikely to be a line I want though. I love going into fly shops wherever I am and hearing their local stories and opinions about tackle popular in their area and I always find a fly or gadget to buy even if I am not on a fishing trip. I don't feel as warm and fuzzy visiting World Wide Sportsman or Cabelas but I'll get off the highway to visit them too. Support your local fly shop is my motto.
