Was a new1 feature with us last
year. We started out with the
knowledge of what a fisherman
wanted and are pleased to find our
customers are satisfied with our
new goods and new prices. Four
separate orders for supplies al ready
this season attest the popularity of
our goods and prices.
While many people like to fish
with a split baiabo rod they do not
always want to pay a fancy price
for highly colored wrapping and
pretty flniah. For these customers
we have a three-joint, split bambo
rod, with extra tip at $1.00 and
$1.25, which answers every pur
pose and will land any trout in the
creek. We have still better ones
for $2.00 and $3 00, and fancy ones
at $5.00 and $0.00; also some
handsome lance wood, as light as
a feather, at $4.75. Some people
will have steel rods ; we have them
from $4.00 up.
The same thing may be said of
X fine lines aa of fine rods. We have
elegant tapered oil-mlk lines at
J $1.50 each, which make a fisher-
0 man's heart glad, yet one of our
:5-cent lines will land a 15 inch
trout as safely. Our fish baskets,
4 reels, bait boxes, snell and plain
hooks, fly !yoks, etc., are in our
t window with prices in plain figures.
