    Default Just scored on a fly rod

    So I shot over to Bass Pro shops (there are inside the silverthorn casino). Was looking around. Sage 9'0 5wt 2 piece on clearance. 4 of them there. 3 of them were 179.00 and one was "mismarked" at 99.00. So i picked it up and went to check out. Sale was made and hard case tube included. Man I love that. Plus I then went and dropped a hundred down and was playing blackjack for an hour. Cashed out and got 175.00 back. I ran out of there home to the condo after that

    I have the luxury of living within 5 mins of BPS for the last 6.5 years. I will definitely miss the luxury when I transfer to Kodiak next summer. They will honor all misprice's. Sometimes you have to call the manager over, but they have always honored it.

    They never gave me any lip about it. They never even questioned it. Just rung it up, enrolled me in the points program and smiled and told me to have a nice day. Man I cant wait to give that bad boy a work out with my solitude reel during fishaplooza

    When Elmondorf had a Dedicated Sports store they were good at mismarking stuff. I used to go there on lunch break and browse the isles. I scored a Lami 9wt for dirt cheap that way. I tried to buy one Manager threw a fit told me I knew that wasn't the right price, and they wern't going to give it to me at that price. Instead of arguing with him I told him that I wasn't interested, informed him there were several marked at that price, and he should get them marked correctly. I went back a few days later, and still mismarked. He saw me going through the line with one, and didn't say a word. I guess he didn't want the argument this time. I left with a new rod and a smile.......lol

    Dan, those rods don't do any good unless you actually use them for more than one day per year

    The price of airfare keeps us to one or two trips a year to Alaska.
