View Full Version : Thanks to LRO

Well, I finally got to met Mr. Hartsell and Mr. Evans. I began downstairs watching and talking with Mr. Evans for about 20 minutes. I goofed around for a while and picked up my new Ross reel and proceeded upstairs. I bothered Mr. Hartsell for a good three hours plus. What a treat! My apologies to all who I didn't recognize. It is hard when you only know people from their board names. Anyhow, Many thanks to LRO and it's staff. Can't wait until spring.

"Ditto" on the "Thanks" to LRO! Also, Big Thanks to Hugh Hartsell for his time, patience, and professional instruction! Unfortunately, I didn't get to observe or meet Mr. Evans; maybe next time!

best ones!

The real thanks goes to all of you from the message board who showed up...and to Jim Evans and Hugh Hartsell! What a great day it was for all!

Byron and I commented to each other how cool it was to introduce message board users to each other by their board names! :)

Your support of these events keeps them coming...and your support of LRO keeps us here! Thanks, you all!

Yes< Thank you LRO for providing a genuine home owned store where one can still get the feeling of stepping back in time when the customer was welcomed as a person, not just a wallet. A place where people introduce themselves and ask your name when you arrive.
Even though it's not required and I don't always have an abundance of $$. I make it a point to purchase something every time I go, it's the least I can do to help support such a fine store. I hope Townsend stays small and never changes! The small town charm of Townsend and LRO is unbeatable.

I have adamantly spoke to many people I come across about LRO and emphasize the fact that when they go there, they will not be treated with disrespect or rudeness because they may not know much about fly fishing. They will feel welcome and be provided with good information as was I when I first walked into LRO at the recommendation of a friend.

So thanks again Byron, Paula & Daniel and lets not forget the chief of security "Dubbing". :)
See you soon,
