I lived about a mile from the TCO in Reading for 3 years. I was only in the place twice! Just not a huge fan of TCO. As far as gear, the brands aren't the ones I like as much, their book collection is poor, their flies are cheap and fall apart and don't appear to be local made. They got some decent tying stuff, and if I need it right now I will stop. But FFP's stuff is usually there next day anyway...

I occasionally get stuff at Cabelas and BPS. Both are nice. For FF purposes, I think the BPS in Harrisburg is better than the Hamburg Cabelas. Either way, I would rarely go to either for the purpose of FF stuff. But if I'm there anyway, I look at it, and sometimes remind myself that I need this or that, and do what needs doing....

But frankly, I don't need much anymore. Usually pick up little things, like tippet, shot, floatant, the occasional fly, etc. while on the road. Stopping at a local shop is a required ritual for information mining, and I do my best to buy something in appreciation. Also end up picking some tying stuff at the fly fishing show. And whatever else I'll need usually comes in a once a year order to FFP in State College, though unfortunately I feel bad that this order is getting so anemic lately.

Similar situation here. Went to the Somerset show and only bought some books and DVDs. Didn't find any materials that I needed because I now have a good stock.
