I visited the shop on a Saturday a few weeks ago on "customer appreciation" day. I drank a complimentary beer or two, talked to friends, and chatted with the slew of angling "celebs" who Steve had in the shop for the occasion, like John Gierach, John Barr, and A.K. Best. It was a lot of fun. I feel lucky to have such a great shop in my hometown that's been here for so long.
