Anyone going to Singapore, do NOT try the fishing tackle shops in Beach Road, except Joe Tackle.
I have personally went up and down to most of these shops and they sell ONLY salt water fishing tackles.
And they don't give a good deal in any of their gears.
Instead try these two shops.
1. Shimano shop-in-shop , King George Avenue, (called Tan Thong Cheong & Co). They are the ONLY official distributors for Shimano brand. The price they offer is unbeatable in any of the beach road shops. They are also the authorized service center for Shimano products in Singapore. Phone # 0065 - 62979596/62973536. You can even order ANY spare parts for Shimano brand here.
2. Siow Chaing & Co Pte Ltd, 30, Ubi Road 4;
This is the ONLY authorized distributor for the following
--- Pure fishing (which covers most of the brands we know eg, Penn, Shakesphere, Abu Garcia, Berkely, etc, etc, etc)
--- D.A.M (Germany) plenty of D.A.M products, most attractive are the D.A.M rods/reels and lines
- - - Only authorized distributor for Mustad brand. Most hooks available at the best possible price.
Phone # : - 0065 - 67433628
Instead of wasting your time visiting 10 - 15 shops in beach road, where you will be mostly cheated, just try these two.
You will get the best possible tackle and deals. Except for brand Daiwa.
If you know any better shops than these, do post in the forum for the benefit of all.
This is based on my experience after 7 trips and more than 10 days of exclusive shopping for fishing tackle in Singapore.
