Small Business Saturday is less than two weeks away.
The official day is on Nov. 24, but I encourage everyone to shop local and support your regional small businesses from here through the end of the year.
Think about keeping your money in your community this holiday season, buying gifts from the shops you feel best represent the community in which you live.
For us fly fishers, that often means supporting our local fly shops rather than the big box stores.
While Bass Pro Shops and some of the other mega stores can be awesome, let's not forget about the mom and pop shops and the local fly dealers who know the waters we fish better than anyone.
Those are the shops and guides who really make these wonderful trout towns so awesome, so be sure to pay it back next time you need to pick up a few flies and some tippet.
