New job with a fly fishing company.

Back from Bali, I picked up a job with Orvis as they just opened a store in Boulder. It is only temporary as it looks like we are moving to Seattle at the end of the month. I will probably try and transfer to the store in Bellevue as they off health insurance, 401(k), and of course a killer discount.
It has been fun as you never know who is going to walk through the door. Some people just want to see the new store. Some people are buying rods, reels, line, the whole kit. They have a great system of ordering from the catalog with a "bat phone" beside a computer. I call it the "bat phone" because you pick it up and customer service is at the other end, no dialing, just wait and they answer.
Today's mission is to learn the arbor knot. And hope that they upgrade their computer system from the DOS based 1989 system we are currently using!
