RIP. 

I just found this out. What a shame. I'd usually make a trip once a year to load up on hooks, tubing, bucktails etc. I'll miss the old man and his store.

Fishing Supply Liquidators in Oldsmar, FL. buys up stock from businesses that go out. No trip to the Tampa area is complete without a trip to this Mecca.

Now I have a reason besides Tarpon at Boca Grande to traverse my new state

He was doing online before online was even a concept. I remember first mailing my order form and postal money order. Then faxing the order form and finally the internet. Many shops that went under could have learned from him. 

When I finally went in person once he told me he did 10x the business out of the basement mail orders then he did upstairs in the shop .

Well, there's a new place in St. James that sells bait, tackle and ethanol free gas. Otherwise Cow harbor is the next closest shop.

Good info, thanks.

Cow Harbor ftw. Terminal Tackle is no great loss imo, that guy was a dick.

The old man and lady were grumbly, the son was cool.  Agree, Cow harbor and JnH are light years better shops.  JnH is always a fun stop because you can get porn, ammo, and fishing supplies in one stop.

Ah never dealt with the son but anytime I'd go in there the old man acted like I was doing him a favor. Also, Hi-Hook up in Huntington has some good stuff as well.

JnH has great selection but they always never give me or wife the time of day... maybe we arent in there enough.

Cow Harbor always has eels friendly service and local knowledge.

If you needed jig heads, rod building supplies or hooks there was simply no where else to go. Any other shop cannot compare in that regard.
