Within a short drive of my place that's now Tackle HQ, Shorecatch and Tackleworld all gone since the new rules were brought in. Pretty sure that only leaves Castaway Tackle as the only local store left near me.

My bad... Hillarys Boat and Tackle is a ripper tackle store still going strong.

Not good seeing another small business closing the door.  All these new regulations don't help at all but apart from bait a lot of people shop online these days .

 Terrible news, i would sometimes pop into the store mainly for the chat with mick, always great bait that accounted for some great fish for me. Last time I was in the shop things didn't seem the same. Haven't heard from mick on the forum lately either. Hope all is well outside of business. Sad times when small local businesses struggle while big chain stores have us by the nuts and are twisting
