The Shopkeeper insisted that they were the real stuff.
The printing error was a minor issue, made by the company.

Berkley and a printing error.......huh.????

Impossible no one sits and type on each package at any Manufacturing Unit.
Every thing is automated and well programmed.

May be you should name the shop, (with Mod's permission). No printing error there, that is a fake.

Surprisingly the keeper has every known brand imagine..... both the Real Stuffs to Fakes......... :-)

Why? Because not many folks want to purchase the good expensive stuff!!!!!!

Just drop Pure Fishing (The corperation that owns the Berkley brand name) a line and let them know.
With India being such a huge potential market in years to come and with the source undoubtedly suplying regionally if not globally, I'm sure they'd be interested.

There's a "Contact us" tab on this page.

That line's as real as a 3 Rupee Note! So is it decent stuff Allan? :wink:

Tight lines,

Perfect for catch and release. Without actually landing the fish that is.
