Web Store Snafu!


UPDATE – All is good! We’ve fixed the problem and everything is running smoothly. That is all.

We had a small IT issue with our web store over the weekend. We lost the entire “Casting Reel” category. We are in the process of rebuilding it now. We should have it back up and running by the end of today. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you need to order a reel you can call us at 817-503-2333 and we will get your order

Angler’s Pro Tackle & Outdoors Announces the “Angler’s Youth League”

AYL LogoOur mission is to get more youth involved in the great sport of fishing and to educate them on the fundamentals of the sport. This program will be open to any young angler under the age of 18. The program is open to all youth with parent/s consent.

To accomplish our goal we plan on holding quarterly educational seminars at Angler’s Pro Tackle & Outdoors. The seminars will focus on all aspects from the basics to more advanced techniques. We also intend to provide information on multi species angling, and other aspects of angling in general.

Along with the seminars we will conduct fishing events throughout the year. This will include bank-derby style events, and boat events. More information will follow on this after we come together as a group to discuss places, times and lakes.

We will feature a special section on our website (blog) to make announcements and answer questions.

Further plans include the development of an information packet in PDF format we can send or distribute to schools. This will include information on how to set up a fishing club, educational material, suggested formats and how to affiliate with the AYL (Angler’s Youth League) for support.

As new chapters of the AYL form we will help with chapter formation, election of officers, recruiting, guest speakers, and other aspects of club operations.

We will have sign-up sheets at the event on October 26-27 at our North Richland Hills store. Parents, volunteers or others interested can get more information and sign up. We will announce at the event when we will hold the first meeting of the Angler’s Youth League.

For information you can call us at 817-503-2333

Turn Your Old Gear Into Cash

rods and reels

How many of us have a rack like this in our bedroom, or in the garage that is filled with rods and reels we no longer use? We all do, right? Well you can turn those rods and reels into cash for new gear!

We have a consignment program and a buy out program where you can trade in that old gear and get new stuff. The consignment program works like this.

– You set the price
– We sell your stuff and keep a small commission
– You can then either take your cash or spend it in the store.

It’s that simple. No more flea markets, or trade days. No more having to load and unload your stuff. No tables and chairs to drag around. You can leave your stuff in the store till it sells or pick it up anytime you want.

We are selling 30-40 pre owned rods and reels per week. To find out more give us a call at 817-503-2333. Presently we only offer this program to in store customers.
