Just sitting here wondering. I just got some Jigs from TFF'er that I bought. A little on the pricey side. but have no problem with giving them the business. So i was wondering if there are others that think like me. Of course i will go to the big Box store to get some things. but I prefer to support smaller businesses.

I like smaller business on things like that for sure. I don't want to buy my next truck from a guy down the street that just started assembling them, but for fishing stuff I like supporting local thumb

I find myself buying more and more from the smaller companies. I just prefer to use things that aren't on the shelves at Academy or Bass Pro. I can usually find things cheaper and with better quality at small businesses.

I always go to barlows....small box store, but carry all the name brands, and cheaper than most of the big box companies.

Im a big proponent of small shops and individual bait makers...I love to meet new people and like to see them succeed...with that said 75% of my soft plastics come from Thermocline lures.
