Having heard about a new tackle store in Bartlett, here in the greater Memphis area, from our friend Larry Rea and others, my son and I decided we should go have a look. David Best’s new store “Primary Tackle” is a treasure of warm water fishing gear and advice. He features a wide selection of plastic worms, spinner baits, hooks and related terminal tackle, along with rods and reels. Videos are playing with “how-to” advice on rigging your gear, and fishing tactics that work. David took us into the back room where he has an aquarium set up to demonstrate the proper use, and resulting action, of various baits.

Primary Tackle is offering fishing classes on Tuesday evenings, using their ample classroom space. These classes will help the beginner better prepare for their next trip, while more advanced anglers will learn new techniques to step up their game.
In an era of big box retailers, it is great to see a local store catering to local interests. Please go by and meet David and his staff, and pick up something. I promise it will not be your only visit to Primary Tackle!
