So if ever there is an entrepreneurial equivalent to getting called up to the big leagues it's having your stuff picked up by a Big Box store like Cabela's. It's pretty much what every small time bush league start up guy like me dreams of.
This week, after months of hard work and digital connecting of back end compliance whctchy-ma-doodles SmithFly modular soft goods for fly fisherman started going live on the Cabela's website. Over the next couple days the complete line of soft gear will be available there, shipping directly from SmithFly World HQ.
Three years ago, I would have been beside myself with enthusiasm for this monumental day. But right now, given the myriad other fires I have going on with new products in the pipeline, boats to deliver and build, shows coming up, customers to take care of, I can only pause for a small moment give myself this small virtual fist bump.
That being said, I'm very much looking forward to developing a deeper relationship with Cabela's. Surprisingly, the process has actually been fairly painless and smooth it just takes a little time and a little work. Onward and upward!
