Before Cabela’s, or Wal-Mart, where did the serious fisherman (or woman) get supplies? From 1930 until the early 1970s, the answer was the mail order company located in Waseca, Minnesota – Herter’s. Herters was the first hunting and fishing retail store if they couldn’t find a manufacturer of a product they made their own, they even made a snowmobile The Herters Husky.
