Farewell, Scarlet Ibis

The Scarlet Ibis Fly Shop in Corvallis will close its doors forever on Saturday. Many of us regard this place as an institution and will be very sorry to have the place disappear. The shop has a long and disparate history, but the current owners are some of the most knowledgeable and helpful people I've ever run into in a fly shop.

They will be missed.

Hope they do well in future endeavors.

The small, independent fly shop is becoming an endangered species.

Too bad.

More and more are closing their doors! Such a shame to see good, knowledgable people have to shut down shop due to the GIANTS out pricing them and offering more via the internet.
