SCIENTIFIC ANGLERS - An Industry Opportunity with Perks

As I get within five years of being able to (not saying that I will...) retire from a career in law enforcement, I find opportunities within the fly fishing industry to be really interesting.  The latest job posting that I've been eyeing is with Scientific Anglers and it would be tempting to return home to Michigan with all the fly fishing opportunities that are there along with working with a great team.

I stopped in at the Scientific Anglers headquarters a couple summers ago and I had a great time seeing behind the curtains at how these "Made in USA" fly lines are designed, made, spooled, and packaged.  It's quite a place.  You can look at this T.F.M. post for the full dispatch.    

Scientific Anglers is currently looking for a "Converting Operator" and this position comes with a sign on bonus and relocation incentives.  Did I mention there are quite a few angling opportunities nearby?

I'm a Canadian wondering if you can survive on $31,000 US a year? That'd be considered poverty here
