Put this together this morning.  Pretty interesting.  Australias Pure Fishing is a behemoth in the industry, and considering Hardys manufacture in Korea and the Aus$/GBP conversion its an acquisition that makes a hell of a lot of sense from a logistics and currency point of view.  Is the recent dip in Abel anodising quality a result from the move to Mayfly group?

Reading between the lines is the sad story of Ross and its decline, the ugly step brother of Sci-Anglers that once was THE product to have.

Those obvious ones not listed are still founder/owner managed & controlled (Scott, Hatch, etc), and still my favourites.
