I needed a new net.I went to a semi-fly shop-fishing store in Lexington.Grabbed a ultra light aluminum net,as I stood in line to check-out I noticed,on the handle of the net,the words MADE IN CHINA,I paused for a moment,then put the net back,and left the storeIFound a made in usa net made by an outfitt called wolfmoon on the internet,looked under Dealers,sure enough,LRO was a dealer.Ordered my made in usa net from LRO.Yes the usa net was more expensive but I was "mad as **** and wasn't going to take any more"

I feel the same way. Thats why I can not buy the TFO rods. I have felt the pain twice of out sourcing and so has my wife. If it is not made in the USA, I no purchase. Good Job

Good for you. That net won't weigh on your conscience while you wear it on your back.

It is so sad to see all our products go over seas. I know this is my little pet peeve but that is why I appreciate the cane builders like GMREEVES and others. American men working toward a dream in some little shop out back. Men putting their hearts and souls into each product they turn out. It just isn't the same when I read made in Korea or china. Sorry for the rave.
