When Dick Cabela returned home to Chappell, Nebraska with a box of hand-tied flies purchased during a furniture-buying trip to Chicago, he placed a classified ad in the October 1961 issue of Sports Afield Magazine reading, “FREE Introductory offer! 5 hand tied Flies . . . . 25c Postage. . . . Handling. Flies. Box 672, Chappel, Nebraska.” Orders have been pouring in ever since.
Dick’s his mindset of quality products and service delivered with honesty, integrity and respect provided the foundation for Cabela’s to succeed on. Now developed into the world’s foremost OMNI-channel outdoor retailer, with stores across the U.S. and Canada and a direct business reaching across six continents, these values hold as true today as they did in 1961.
Cabela’s strong foundation continues through passionate outfitters who are expert saltwater anglers as well, making them an ideal partner with the Inshore Fishing Association. Their experience in fishing for redfish results in an assortment of exceptional products, along with relevant knowledge that catches you more fish at an excellent value that keeps you on the water longer.
