With gas prices through the roof and most fishin spots are a bit of a drive to get to! Now no matter how faithfull you are to your local tackle shop if you could go else where and get the same gear way cheaper would you? I'm speaking of army&navy in langly! Way cheaper than almost every major fishing shop around! Some members are not gonna like this post but I only write this to reach out to some members who may be straped for cash and lookin for great prices that most stores CANNOT match trust me I've tryed! Same gear as other places but far cheaper my 2 cents! CK

If you live near a "local" tackle shop that's great, but if you live in Langley or Cloverdale the A&N is your local tackle shop. The prices are quite good and from my experience the staff are quite helpful and knowledgeable. Take the time and chat with them and you'll find that most of the staff in the tackle department are avid fishers. All the so called "local" tackle shops are the better part of an hour away if you live in my area. Not exactly local if you ask me.
My :2cents:

Funny to me story about army and navy.
I bought a shimano convergence at a local shop and a buddy got his for $10 cheaper at army and navy.
When his broke, he found out it was an older model not covered by shimano's warrantry.
But hey he saved $10!

Remember Gills? That was a decent shop. Apparantly the son didn't want to continue the business so they closed up shop. I agree though A&N is a good shop, great prices.

This topic was moved to a section we call "Topics under review". If you see a topic has been moved here, it means BCFR staff will look at it and edit, if necessary, and also take any other appropriate actions.

In this case the concern was that someone was promoting a site that does not advertise with BCFR. In using the very word promote, we feel it must be an active and repetitive plug of any particular business. For instance, posting links to other sites or ads regularly, on the site, or in your profile, would be considered advertising or promoting. If CK was going to post Links to the website, advertise prices and product, or even post something like this thread with anything even resembling regularity, then we'd shut it down.

In this case we do not feel this is infringing on the arrangements between BCFR and its sponsors, and does not constitute "advertising" another site. It seems no different than barskull's "Closing Out Sale" thread, merely a notice to other members about alternative cost saving strategies.

Each situation is different however, and how they are handled is at the discretion of the BCFR staff .

I miss gills :-[ I do shop at A&N for the same reasons as everyone else. However I do still shop at other specialty tackle shops. I would hate to see our local fly and tackle store disappear. For this reason I make my bigger purchases there and do so with the confidence that I'm getting quality product and superior after sales service. A&N will never be able to match the service and expertise of a traditional fishing store. I bought my first fly rod this year at michael & young's. They helped me a great deal with the purchase and appropriate flys for the fishing I had planned. I know I couldn't get that kind of service at a big box store.
