Old Academy.

Just something I thought about, and was wondering how many people remembered the old Academy where you could pick and choose your soft plastics in the little bins. Kind of like you would for your fruit and your veggies at the grocery store. I wish it was like that now, with all of the new lures.

the first academy store was in san antonio. i remember back in the late '70's, when i lived in austin, there was an "academy surplus" on i-35. they used to have these tv commercials where this kid would come on and announce all of the specials, then the announcer would come on and say, "that's right, david."
they were very crudely-made, low-budget, early tv commercials.
