thought i would ask what other people think of their local tackle shops, the ones i have dealt with near me in the past are,
rorys - remple bar in dublin - good to average - staff are poor - except for rory himself
henrys ballybough in dublin - henry is a good bloke - limited stock
anglers world in navan - good shop - excellent stock - good prices but not too much game gear - mostly course stuff
southside angling - ardee street dublin - good stock - massive prices at least 15 - 20% more expensive for a lot of stuff than in other shops - snowbee flyfishing vest with built in life jacket i saw it at €260 in southside and €220 in henrys!, there are many other examples
ABC - mary st - ok but very small shop - limited stock.
Pat Cleere in Clane - game supplier -ok shop - staff a bit condensending
T&J angling long mile road - smallish shop - mostly course gear - reasonablly priced stuff.
Baumans - stillorgan - dublin - average to good stock - average staff - but on the expensive side.
these are the ones i can think of at the moment, interesting to hear what others think?
