Cabela's co-founder dies

TILDEN TWP., Pa. - One of the co-founders of outdoor outfitter, Cabela's, has passed away.

The company says Richard Cabela died Monday at his home in Nebraska.

The company got its start in 1961 when Cabela bought $45 worth of fishing flies in Chicago.

That led to a catalog and eventually 50 stores in North America.

Cabela was 77 years-old.

The chain has a location in Tilden Township.
