Memories,I remember Herters long before I heard of Cabelas,I remember their Huge Catologues which had heaps of things never seen elsewhere.
I was only a Young Apprentice in those days,there was no Internet,Ebay,so everything had to be Via Mail Order or wait for The Local Stockist to get it in,it seemed forever waiting for The Latest Fly Lines to arrive as everything originally came by Cargo Boats.
Then we were introduced to Airmail & Import Duties.
There were always plenty of people Fishing,heaps of people Fished & everyone mainly Fished The Rivers as access was no problem,also most of The Dams & Lakes were just being Built & The Rivers weren't Silted as they are today.
