Internet is fantastic, we are able to get all the infos we want, you are able to read us everyday and we can check the places we want to go fishing too… but the web allows us many things…such as shopping. At Le Mouching we always beleived it was better to shop at you r local Fly SHop and support the local business…Hardy the famouse english reel buider, doesn’t agree…Very soon they will only sell their reels “Made in England” only on their website ! We feel it is not faire for the retailers. Would you buy your reel directly at Hardy’s or will you stop buying their brand to support local economy? This is to startin England very soon, then in the US, then to the rest of the world.
