The shop's laid-back vibe makes customers comfortable coming back for expert advice and quality gear and offers a cozy confine for sharing tales about the fish that was this big and almost in the boat when it bit through the line, jumped out of the water, tail-slapped the angler across the face, and flew into the sunset.
