No news articles on this yet but I had a conversation on the phone today with the Regional Mgr (conventional) for Pure fishing. He's been with Pure Fishing for at least 20 years, he told me that Pure let him go and a bunch of other people in the field and at the office. It's my understanding that almost everyone with Hardy USA is no longer with the company although I haven't heard anything about the staff in Alnwick. Ever since Newell sold it, to a private equity group, rumors have been going around that they have no idea what to do with it. With Jarden Pure Fishing was big fish with Hardy being the small fish in the big pond, with Newell, Pure was the small fish, so they sold it. I have no idea where they are going now. I certainly hope someone in the Fly industry steps up and buys Hardy, lots of history there.
