Rhode Island Tackle Shop – Plenty to Choose From

Since this coronavirus deal has forced the cancellation of so many much-anticipated fishing shows and events, now’s the time to reintroduce ourselves to local tackle shops. Many took big inventory risks anticipating big weekends and sales and we still need to gear up for a big fishing season.
Before you reach for the laptop and hide behind the door for a delivery truck, now’s the time to visit a shop, stock up, have a socially distanced conversation, maybe pick out a new rod or lure bag for you or someone else. That’s time well spent and needed.

Fishermen are tough by nature and we’ll get through this in time.

Let’s make sure all the shops make it through as well. Don’t see your favorite tackle shop listed below? Email me the name and location and we will add it to the list below.
