Time Flies

Time flies when you're tying flies! Presumably Joel La Follette would say so, anyway. The Oregon resident is the owner of Royal Treatment Fly Fishing, a tackle shop that also offers classes. Joel was introduced to fly fishing by his grandfather at a young age, as he recalls in a new Lincoln Now article.

“My grandfather was not used to having kids around," he says. "There was a little stool [in his fly room], and I could come down and sit on that stool while he tied flies and drank cheap wine—if I kept quiet. I sat and watched him tie flies for six weeks, every night, and finally, he turned to me and says, ‘Would you like to try this?’ I said sure. And I tied—I remember, it was a bucktail Royal Coachman, from start to finish, without any instruction.” And the rest, as they say, is history.

At Pugmire Lincoln, Inc., located at 1865 Cobb Parkway, S.E. in Marietta, we understand the level of passion that Joel brings to fly fishing because we bring the same to our customer service. So when you come in to check out our new inventory, we'll make sure you have a great experience. See you soon!
