Show Notes with Adamsbuilt Fishing

05:30 – Hendrix Outdoors was the company that Mont worked for initially and then transitioned into his own company.

06:00 – Wagon Jobbers was a new word for me.  This is where they would deliver products to your doorstep and not via Amazon.

07:20 – John Gierach was on the podcast and noted why he became a trout bum which was similar to why Mont got into the business.

08:40 – Jay Fair was a mentor for Mont.  I was able to track down a random Jay Fair video on trolling flies. 

18:30 – Dennis with Wild Fish Wild Places is the guy who does the marketing for Adamsbuilt.

22:00 – The Truckee Wader and the lightweight Walker River Wader are two goto wader products for Mont and Adamsbuilt.
