Default Fathers Day gift-Walleye Skin Wallet

If anyone is looking for the perfect gift for the angler that has everything I think I found it. Was at Scheels in Fargo and noticed they have some wallets made from tanned walleye skin. Pretty cool.

I think they had two colors black and brown.
Two different styles: $59 for wallet and $35 for business card holder.

They were in the fishing department at Scheels. 701-298-2918 is the number.

The wholesaler was on the radio yesterday and said they were working on a checkbook cover too but it is not ready yet.

Where is the skin coming from?
I for one, don't want to encourage or reward walleye netting.
