Quality Angling and Outdoor Establishments

This page will be in development in the months ahead.

This section will host links to Pennsylvania outdoor shops, outfitters, and tackle shops that meet my own quality standards. I think it’s important to take note of these and to send dollars their way as too many seem to be closing down. Among the Pennsylvania tackle shops, I guess they’re threatened by a simple lack of interest, and by online competition. And it’s tough for the internet to supply live bait when you need it. I think that local tackle shops are threatened too by over-regulation, especially the ordinances that keep a local kid from setting up a stand to sell worms on his street and then growing that into his own tackle shop one day.
