Hi all

I am trying to find a decent tackle shop close to the Falmouth, St Austel, Mevigessey area.
I suppose by decent, I mean a good regular bait supply.
I am also looking for a replacement rod and reel, my primary set up is an Abu 6500 and 13ft conolon, gggreat rod and the reel is fine too.
any ideas.
I guess I would like something which compliments the exsisting rod ?

Tackle shop in Mevagissey has decent bait, not sure of the rod prices though. You might want to have a look in Trago Mills for this side of things as they do have some cheap prices.

They do sell most things, stores can be found at Newton Abbot, Liskeard and Falmouth. So if you are in the St Austell Bay area then Liskeard is probably the closest.

Hi there are several i use and know of around those areas. There is a good one at meva, one at the caravan place on the way to Pentewan that have lug,rag ,frozen eel,peeler and macky fillets. There is one in Truro my old man goes to for me it has good rag,eel,macky,cuttlefish baby sqiud etc. There are i think three in the st.a area one at par market (havent been there but its ok i think) one near the motor museum ( again havent been there as it is new. And the other is near Aldi near the video place. And the other one i know of which i believe does live eel is the tackle shop in par.

Help this may help you a bit?

I'll 'second' Andy as a top recomendation. Fair prices, good selection and sound advice. He re-tuned my 6500 for free and likewise will service your reel for free ex parts. All round top guy. The shop is at the Maritime Museum end of town on Swanpool Hill. This is the road that runs up off the main street opposite Custom House Quay. He is open 7 days a week, but closes early on a Sunday.

Deffo Boilie Stop. Never been let down by him.
If you can't get to him until after opening hours, if you let him know what time you will be there, if he can, he will stay open for you.
