The Tackle Shop
Fishing tackle shops have always been more than places to buy fishing tackle. They are news hubs and social centres too. Customers are as likely to call in for a chat and maybe a cup of tea as they are to purchase hooks or bait.
Even before the advent of internet shopping the small town tackle shop was threatened by larger enterprises with greater buying power. In these challenging competitive times the family run tackle shop has to change to survive and thrive.
