These books have helped inspire my own tying – and I refer back to them over and over!

Yikes!

Filed under ramblings

Here we are coming into the fall season, and I haven’t been fishing once – life has just gotten too busy it seems. With the lack of fishing, comes the lack of posts – and I gasped when I realized that its been over a year since I last put a post on this site.

I did make it to the grand opening of Cabela’s here in Edmonton, and it was quite an impressive store – the shoulder to shoulder crowd sucked big time though. I wasn’t impressed with their fly-tying section – the Wholesale Sports in South Edmonton Common has them beat hands down (although I haven’t been there in a long time).

This year I did manage to get out and do a bit of exploring down in the Ram River Falls area, around the FTR. It was still hardwater season though – but definitely have to get down there when the water is flowing and I can get a line wet!

Cabela’s Planning 2nd Canadian store in Edmonton, Alberta

Filed under General

Cabela’s Incorporated (NYSE: CAB) announced today plans to bring the Cabela’s retail experience to loyal customers in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and the surrounding area.

Cabela’s expects to open the Edmonton store in fall of 2011. The 70,000-square-foot building will be located in the new Currents of Windermere shopping development on Windermere Boulevard, between Terwillegar Drive and Anthony Henday Drive. This store will be the second Cabela’s location in Canada, joining the Winnipeg store, which was converted from the S.I.R. Warehouse Sports Store in May 2008.

You can view the full news release here.

Be interesting to see how this plays out with Wholesale Sports, who recently opened up a large new store in South Edmonton Common.

This has definitely not been the summer for fishing, so not much to post here unfortunately.
I’ve been stupid busy working on the house and stuff, and no time to be had…. maybe sometime in August, or just wait for the fall I suppose…
