Thanks to Country Attic Treasures for hosting D&H at their shop in South Lebanon yesterday for a Fly Fishing Day.

Between visiting vendors in Scotland, we encountered a rugged landscape and ever changing weather. If there were blue skies, we learned to give it about an hour or two and it would be cool and raining. Definitely Barbour and sweater country. The thatched cottage in the photo is a crofters cottage. These hardy folks built […]
As we were traveling through Scotland visiting vendors, we stopped off to visit an estate that offers fly fishing on the River Tweed and pheasant and grouse shooting. It was very interesting to learn about an estate that is very active today and the home is still occupied by the Duke and his family (a […]
The next vendor we visited was north of Barbour in the Scottish border country. This is a lush green land that sometimes looked similar to Kentucky with big rolling hills and livestock and rock walls everywhere. We have had this small company make lambswool sweaters for D&H for years. It was an eye opening experience […]
The first vendor visit of our trip was with Barbour in South Shields, England. D&H has been selling Barbour gear for twenty five years and it was great to finally get to the factory. The amount of hard work that goes into each jacket will make me appreciate my thirty-two year old jacket every time […]
I am traveling through Scotland and northeastern England to visit five vendors that D&H works with (or hopes to soon be working with). This trip is all about bringing the best gear from the rugged northern reaches of Britain to our Cincinnati shop. A big bonus is all of the Land Rover Series sightings. Scotland […]

Watched a good rugby match yesterday: St X vs Withrow. The boys in blue were playing heads up rugby with good passing and a coordinated effort. There were a number of “kicking out of hand” by St X. I liked seeing this because it meant that they were thinking about options. Next match at home […]
