I recently read a post on the blog Fishingthroughlife. It was about supporting U.S. manufacturers when purchasing fly fishing gear. I took this post to heart and started to really research which companies manufacture their products in the U.S. It wasn't really that easy to find. I finally found this site. It goes over quite a few companies and also asks questions about why we can't get more products made in the U.S. Definitely check out the part about hook production. This holiday season when thinking about gear purchases I'm definitely going to look more into where things are made. Doing small things such as buying things made locally or in the U.S. can make a big economical impact over all.
