We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, one of four days per year we shut down. We will be here every other day next week and weekend.

Well now you've really done it!:mad:

One of the few days of the year that I actually give myself off and I can't come spend my hard earned money on your frivolous offerings!!

I guess I'll just have to take my business to.... uhhh... uhhh.....

Could you recommend a really good fly shop that'll be open Thanksgiving Day?:redface:

Hey, Gery,
I, in fact, do know of a really good fly shop that will be open on Thanksgiving Day.

If Paula and Byron don't mind, here's the store: http://littleriveroutfitters.com/store/home.php

Jeff, thanks. I've heard that store is pretty good. ;)

Gerry, you just call me or email me, honey. I'll leave my feast cooking to come wait on you. Customers first. :smile:

Could be a trend...a 24/7 fly shop - I would bet the graveyard shift would bring in a ton of sales ;)

I'll be driving up Wednesday - my annual solo trip. I'll be fishing all day while y'all are carving the turkey.

Plunker, I always do a free-range/organic, but not one of the wild ones. They have become our pets. :redface:

There may be some Wild Turkey but not the roasted kind.

HAHA! :biggrin:

Nope...well, perhaps a drink named after a queen of England or one named after an invasive species of tree...but no wild animals. No comments about the man of the house. ;)

...better Wild Turkey than Old Crow....

Can't go wrong with a Very Old Barton.

Indeed! :biggrin:

It's going in the oven as soon as my artisan bread for the stuffing finishes drying. :cool:

Paula and Byron,
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. There's so much to be thankful for.

Looking forward to my next trip to Townsend and the chance to visit with the folks at LRO for a spell.

If things work as planned, I will be able to make it to one of the intermediate fly tying classes this winter.
