Some poster on TKF said he went by iFly today and it was completely empty of merchandise and dark.

That's what I heard at Damon 7 Lakes this weekend as well. There had been rumors for several weeks that they were failing. Sadly, I guess they were true. I hate to see anyone lose their business.

I missed that talk. You'd think they would have a blowout on their merchandise.

Wow - i guess thats why they cancelled their showing of the Fly Fishing Film Tour this year....and there goes my idea for a new place to hold the club meetings. The wildfish theatre would have been perfect.

I agree they should have had a blow out sale though.

Didn't they have 2  locations? Are we sure they didn't consolidate?
I heard the guy Brooks sold it to had another business and used Anglers Edge for PR connections.

I know a few years back he bought nearly all the chartered trips we had at the auction.

No - the St Arnolds Brewery one is still happening. There was supposed to be another in Houston at iFly. It was listed on the film tour website but when you try to buy tickets there was a message saying it had been cancelled.

Cheers
