My first trip to a Bass Pro Shop

I understand for some places in the country the BPS where the action is. I’ve just never had one close and I haven’t gone out of my way to visit one, so I’ve never visited one, until today.

My first time

My first time

I had a business trip to Fresno today and on the way, my boss and I stopped by my first Bass Pro Shop.

Good God Man. That place was HUGE. The size of the place was just amazing and the interior was as impressive as the exterior.

I got by boss (he is my boss, but he’s also my friend) set up with a rig so he can go catch sharks with his son in the SF Bay like I do with my daughter. Then I got some hopper flies I can throw at little trout in Montana next week. There were boats and guns and bows and atv’s and more and more and more and more. There was a fly shop inside the BPS, small but serviceable. They had the hoppers I needed.

So much goodness

It was Man/Redneck Disneyland.

It was fun.

So, now I’ve been to a Bass Pro Shop.

I’ll go back, but I’ll also still try to support smaller, local shops when I can. I value the little shops too much.
