Shopping local does good things. Like keep the homies working, the money in the community, and the best products in your shops. What was that last one? I said, it keeps the best products in your local shop. Because a business can’t get new product in if you don’t support it by making your purchase there whenever you can. We’re lucky here in Missoula to have a great community of fly shops and anglers, and if you don’t see what you want in the store ask them for it. They’ll get what you want. They are good like that. This weekend is Small Business Saturday, which is a national campaign to support local businesses in the flurry of holiday shopping. Get in there and do your part.
