    Even then;
    Dry or wet flies were $1.44 a dozen ....Bivisibles $2.35
    Nymphs were $1.62 a dozen and Muddlers. 3 for $.91
    Their "Pro-Plus" glass rod was $18.57 and the "Super Light" was $19.27
    They had 2 split bamboo fly rods
    The "Deluxe Impregnated" was $14.97 with $4.69 for the extra tip.
    The "Grand Deluxe Imported St. Albans" dry fly action rod was $72.97 plus $23.47 for the extra tip
    Medalist type reels were $7.97 and $8.07
    Their "high-end" fly lines were $6.95 for DT and $7.95 for WF
    And a grade A grizzly neck...$12.97

    Whoops, bad analogy. Itís still that way.
