Default Sending a thumbs up

Anytime a company does something good for our youth I think they deserve some recognition. During the summer I instruct fly fishing merit badge at the local scout camp. Usually I bring a bunch of equipment to augment the two outfits the camp has. This year the two rods that the camp uses both had the tips broken. Not expensive rods but definitely good tools.
Sent the two tips back to SA and explained who used them and that I couldn't tell them how they broke. Received a nice letter stating that accidents happen and that they would gladly replace them for the scouts.
Got home today from a trip to WV and there is a big box from fedex on my doorstep. In it was not two tips but five and two new complete SA outfits rods reels line and leader. And a letter explaining 5 tips should take care of any problems and the two new outfits should help with the program.
Thumbs up Scientific Anglers for making sure our youth is flyfishing !
And Thank You Very Much!:thumbs upu:thumbs upu

Good on SA and a big thanks to you as well for spending your time helping out the scouts.

Always a treat to hear good stories from companies that understand what investing in the future means.
