Fly Shop Crime

I was at The Great Outdoor Provision Company today talking to my friend Jim that works there. In the middle of our conversation he stops and grabs a pack of feathers obviously angry. "THIS WON'T DO AT ALL!" He said. I analyzed the pack in his hand and wondered what exactly was wrong. The feathers looked fine they were little off color from the other pack. I couldn't believe Jim would be that anal. Then he told me, "half the pack is missing." I thought why would someone steal just a few feathers and not a whole pack.

"People are stealing them for their hair." Jim said.

I never thought I'd see the day when people would shoplift feathers for their hair. Jim told me how much people were selling them for and I started to understand why. If you have some old feathers laying around you think you'll never use you might want to post them on Craigslist. You might be sitting on a fortune.


  1. Isn't that something. People seem to get dumber and more ignorant everyday. Can't they go to a local farm and get some feathers for their hair. YOu know I think I may have some extra feathers I wouldn't mind selling to some of these goof balls. Great Post. Tight Lines.

  2. Feathered fashions
    It's got to stop.

  3. I think it's slowing down a little since Steven Tyler and American Idol are over. Whew...
