Default Re: Orvis to Acquire the Scientific Anglers and Ross Reels Businesses from 3M

Dan,

From what i can tell, MOST of Orvis's stuff is from overseas.

Couple that with the salaries they pay in their retail operations, which, is close or at poverty levels kinda makes you wonder. The Walmart of fly fishing?? I hope not. I just chose not to be a part of it.

The business models are there, to design and manufacture right here in the states. I guess it all boils down to the bottom line or greed.

Just sayin....

Jim
