Fishing Tackle Shops

As well as selling fishing tackle most shops will also act as permit agents for a number of their local fisheries. They are always a good starting point for visiting anglers and most will be happy to offer advice and up to date information - but don't ask when there's a queue at the counter. They have to make a living and there's not much profit in free advice!
