Re: remember when....
Fly lines came in oversized Shinola cans.
Aeon was a hot brand in leaders.
The Scientific Anglers Rep was also the Uncle Josh Pork Rind Rep.
Your Powell Rod Rep camped out in your shops parking lot, instead of heading to the Best Western.
A middle aged man could pay a mortgage and raise a family on his hourly wages from a fly shop.
Fly show organizers were just happy to have people show up and it was free, even the parking!
Just a few of many, TT
