The Cabelas/ BPS merger in my opinion will not be a good thing. I worked at BPS in the Fly shop, and to say that it is a sorry excuse for a fly shop is an understatement. The newer store I worked in had over 2/3rds of the total floor space devoted to clothing, fishing has become a side business to them. There are 4 BPS stores within an hour drive and I don't spend any money in any of them.
The local shop I use has some clothing which the owner has told me that is more profitable than fly gear, but at least the fly shop is well stocked.
I talked to the Eagle Claw folks at ICAST because I was having a tough time finding Billy Pate hooks, and he told me that they can be ordered directly from them.
