I'm off to New York for a few days [:D] ...amongst other things planning to visit some tackle shops over there...[?]
What's good value for money?
What can you get over there that you can't get back here?
I have been thinking Penn Multiplying Reels, Trilene line and various lures.
angel.gif If you ask me nicely I might be able to bring some bits and pieces back for some mad MDs!! For cost price + postage..
Talk to me
Cheers Ted

Hiya Ted

Dunno bout New York but when I was in Florida a couple of years ago I could have filled two suitcases with the fishing gear I wanted to buy.

If you're keen on pike fishing the lures are typically less than half UK price - Rapalas from $5, Creek Chub even cheaper.

Braided line is dirt cheap too, Fireline is around $10 for 150yds and if you can find it check out the Spiderwire braid and mono.

Shimano reels were really cheap too, but they only had the very small ones when I was there and they weren't really suitable for the fishing I do.

Basically whatever you'd pay in sterling over here, you'll get the same for dollars over there.

Oh and the cheapest spots were the big hypermarkets - K-Mart, Walmart, Target etc.

Tight Lines (and happy shopping [:D])
