Never heard anything like this before.
As some of you may know I am looking to start sea fishing soon.

So on my quest of sorting out the kit I would like I have been into my local shop today.

While looking at a AFAW clubman rod a guy asked if I needed help.
So I asked if he could get the AFAW 6+Bait and what the cost for a pair would be.

His reply was " Would love too but they do not exist anymore"

Me "really"
Him "Yes have been trying to contact Jason (I think he said) and no answer.
So they have finished"

Me " Funny I spoke to them yesterday"

Him Interrupts me "Don't know how they have shut"

End of I walked out.

Not very professional me thinks so won't be returning.

You'd better get used to it, mate. There are many very good tackle shops but the industry, as a whole, drastically needs dragging into the 21st century.

Been in the sport about 40yrs just not sea fishing.
Never heard anything like that.
Had people say so and so's tackle is ****e and stuff like that.

But never that a company had closed when it has not.

Once you decide you really want something it's best to order on the internet when you get answers like that from a shop, when I bought my 6+baits I got from North East Tackle ( best price then)
