Can anyone give me an honest answer without the run of the mill answers as... to support our economy... we are better... etc. Just want to know why you feel this way?

My Honda Pilot was built in Canada, and I love it! As far as fly fishing gear is concerned, I only know of Islander Reels, and I've never had the opportunity to examine one in person. They seem to have a great reputation, and they look awesome, but I have no idea where I can check them out in person.
