When I happened to stumble upon this little gem (copyrighted in 1982, which is probably when I got the fly line) I was taken back to a simpler time in fly fishing. Back then the companies in the industry didn't need to scream to get the buyer's attention like they do today. No flashy colors on the boxes. No big bold letters to grab your eye. Not even a fly fishing celebrity's picture or endorsement. Sheesh!! How'd they ever sell anything back then?!!?
So I thought I'd share a few more pages from the inside of this trip down memory lane. For those of you who weren't fishing back then (or weren't even born yet), this is how things used to look in the fly fishing world.
