Its sad for the 6 employees that have lost their jobs. Apparently rising rent and a lot of competition from other outfits in town have made the decision for the owners. Personally, I will miss them because I could always find what I wanted locally between Tyee and Gone Fishin. And both Tyee and Gone Fishing guys and gals were great to BS with if they wernt busy. No need to go to Nanaimo or Campbell River. Some items are being sold at clearance prices.... some very nice womens camo gear at 50% off. Boxed Mustad steelhead hooks , fly tying material, reels and a few rods, good quality chest waders etc . Not that much salt gear, but as they send stuff to the home store in Campbell River, I expect that will change.... Its sort of like picking over the bones of a dead body.
