Default Re: Pure Fishing Acquires Hardy and Greys

I can't say that I am thrilled with this news but the company has been for sale for about a year. It was only a matter of time before a deal would transpire. Wish I still had that stock pile of vintage Hardy's I sold in 07............ The eBay market will go nuts with this news. I'll probably be able to find out what it will mean to me by contacting my Rep. I became a Hardy Pro last year, I'll ask what changes this will make for me.

By the way, I landed 3 Kings today with one of their (Hardy) Marksman 2 - T series Spey rods along with some dandy trout. All three salmon were in the 27 - 30 pound range and all were released without being removed from the water as per regulations.

There will be pictures on a thread soon. A slight delay in posting pictures because I dropped that little Cannon pocket camera in the water....................

What an enormous hassle! Have you ever tried to handle a 13' fly rod (I don't dunk my reels) and a 27 pound fish while operating a tiny little camera all at once?

I managed to get pictures of the salmon but none of the trout. The card reader in this hp G-72 doesn't work so I need to figure out how to retrieve the pictures.
