No baggies but I still have a couple of these hanging around. Did a show with Larry in 1984. It was fun..

Hmmmmm Jenny, Your bags and my rags!!!!Probably make a killin'..

I didn't get down that way very often but when I did I always stopped by to buy some fishing gear.

Sorry to see them go.

I want that jacket!

I hear that Dudley Nelson is doing a new TV show... I think with Larry? Not sure... that is supposed to be National. I can't wait to hear more.

The theme song from fishing the west sometimes plays in my head as I am walking along the river.

So does Merle Haggard doing Big City, thanks to NW Fishing report.

The Larry's Crew in Gresham was great... Mike Duley, Rick Vincent, Dan Joy were outstanding in the tackle department, led by Guy Schorenborn this was a really fun place to purchase tackle and talk fishing. If there's one thing I miss about losing Larry's Sporting Goods it's the relationships missed.

Bill used to work there.
He said it was the most fun job he'd ever had!

I can recall talking with Larry many times. He has a special way of making you feel that you are the only person in his mind when talking with you. Salesmanship? I think so. Nice guy.

If Bill worked at the Gresham Larry's I guess I would like to know his last name.....I'm sure I would know him since I was in there every day for 13 years delivering the US Mail.

Ahh Yes, the Woodland Store. I remember when I was little going in there with my dad. We still go there, but it hasn't been Larry's for years. I still remember my dad introducing us to Larry. He was very nice to us. Him and Brad are both nice people. I hear they will be tearing it down one of these days for new devleopment.

I would love to get some of those old episodes to watch again. I doubt they made tapes to buy did they???? We need another show like that for the area.

I was by far my favorite store growing up in the Beaverton area. I shopped at the Cedar Hills store (bought my first fly rod there). Very sad to see it go.

I worked at the Gresham store in the early 90's while I went to Mt Hood. It was a fun place to work for sure, just think, getting paid to talk fishing.....

Pat, I still have some of those price tag rods too.

I know I've seen every show made, we used to have them playing over head all the time at the tackle counter.

We still say "nice fish Larry" in my boat. I know when I would go in the Cedar Hills store they had all the Fishing the West shows on tape and rented them. There probably around somewhere.
