American Legacy Fishing Company – NEWS FLASH – November 21, 2010
This Issue: FREE $50 – $100 Gift Cards, Christmas GIFT GUIDE, Shimano Caenan LH, Much More…
Well, this is Thanksgiving week. Dixie and I are headed for Austin, Texas to visit our youngest daughter and her husband and the 3 ½ year old “grandtwins” who are, simply put, cute as a button. We’re anxious to see these two little girls as well as their parents. It’s a long drive for us, but well worth the effort. The last three Thanksgivings have been missing this family as they were living in Hong Kong, so we expect this to be a very special week.
We like Thanksgiving and all of the “fixins” that accompany this holiday, but always try to remember just why we celebrate this day. We hope all of you will join us in taking the time to be thankful for just what we have. As Dixie and I have gotten older we realize it really isn’t about the “things” in our lives, but our family and friends. This is what we are truly thankful for.
We have been blessed with 3 daughters, 7 grandkids, and many, many wonderful relatives and friends. This is our true wealth and something we all too often take for granted. That’s why Thanksgiving is such a great holiday. It’s sort of a preamble to preparing us for Christmas and puts us in a more thankful, sharing and giving mood.
Yes, we know Thanksgiving is the kick off for the Christmas shopping season, but we like to think of it as the kick off for the “count your blessings” season. It’s a time we can reflect on just how lucky we are and be thankful for where we live and those we share our lives with. It’s a time when we can come together as families and just take in all the love we oftentimes are too busy to appreciate. We like Thanksgiving and hope you do as well.
Being Thanksgiving week we decided to do something special. We’re giving away $50 or $100 ALFC Gift Cards free with any rod purchase. It’s or way of saying “thank you” for your patronage and loyalty towards American Legacy Fishing this last year. Be sure to take a look at the details listed below.
We’re also having a Thanksgiving “thank you” day at our store on Friday, November 26, 2010. Be sure to take a look at the details on this event below. We would love to see you.
Once again, we thank each and every one of you for your continued patronage and loyalty. Yes, this is a business. But more importantly it is a promise to every one of you to do our very best to meet your needs and expectations. We truly appreciate the opportunity to serve you and wish all of you a wonderful and restful Thanksgiving.

I’m not one to click on links, but every so often something so compelling comes along that I do. Even more infrequent is for me to pass along a link. And simply unheard of is that I put one in the newsletter. But in this case, I encourage everyone to watch this. Over 4 million already have.
I’m not going to say much about it, but I can assure you it will make you proud and quite possible bring a tear to your eye. Take a look and then let me know what you think. Here’s the link which you can simply click on:
Shimano Caenan LEFT HAND Reels are Here………………..
Just in time for Christmas gift giving! The Shimano Caenan 101 low profile casting reels in left hand have arrived. As we said in an earlier newsletter, this new series of reel is a heck of a bargain and shouldn’t be overlooked by the serious fisherman. The overall quality is certainly what you have come to expect from Shimano. This is a great choice for the beginning fisherman or that special child or grandchild who is ready to move up to an adult reel.
We have a very limited supply of these left hand models, so if this is something you want to make sure is under the Christmas tree this year act now. We would hate to see you disappointed!

So here’s the deal. Your wife says “we’re going shopping Friday”. Now I don’t know about you, but I can list about 100 things I would rather do than this, including having a tooth extracted. But sometimes “she who must be obeyed” has the final say. Well, if you’re in our neck of the woods we may have a better option for you.
While the little woman is off fighting the crowds and spending money, dealing with “sale” this and “discount” that why not come by American Legacy Fishing for a visit.

Just turn down this short, dog-leg street and we’re right across from the stop sign at 500-A North Congress Avenue. Lost? Call us at 1-877-402-6350
Whe you come in we’ll have some sandwiches and refreshments and even a nice leather couch you can relax on. You can look around at some of the brand new items or take a peek at some of our videos that we’ll be running. You may even want to share a story or two about some of those fish that got away. We’ll all be here to assist you or leave you alone, whatever you choose. We would sure love to see you! Or, you can forget about coming by and just follow your better half around as she shops, and shops, and shops, and shops, and……..
