Default Re: What Makes a Great Fly-Shop?

Mentioning "snobbishness" reminded me: I have, over the years, generally separated shops into "angler shops" and "boutiques". This has nothing to do with the staff; I have experienced wonderful people in both types. It has more to do with the clientele. I won't go into details but suffice it say I find the boutique shoppers have a different priority, outlook, and attitude than I do. And, yeah, boutiques have higher price points and that seems to have some influence on this effect.
