There are a lot of places to buy fishing tackle in Bangkok and if I were to list them all it’d be a little bit short of stupendously difficult. So I have listed here some of the tackle shops that I sometimes frequent to stock up on fisherman toys to help me catch big fish while satiating my endless addiction for fishing gear.

So here are some of the shops I frequent and a short summary of them below. To read more, just click on their respective links or in the drop-down menu navigation bar above under Tackle shops.

7 Seas Pro Shop

Arguably the best place in town for high end gear in Bangkok. It’s also one of the most expensive places to shop for fishing gear. They stock all the most expensive brands. Walking past their display showcase will literally make most fishermen’s mouths water.

 

Hatthai Fishing

For the Bangkok resident that lives along the BTS (sky train), this shop is extremely convenient as it is situated very close to the On Nut station. Their selection is quite limited in quality but they have basic gear for lure fishing, bait fishing and pole fishing.

 

Kanom Shop

If lure fishing is your thing then this is your place. The Kanom shop is a lure fishing only shop and they have a very decent selection of lures that work well with the local predator species.

 

Mokoley

As the official distributor of Shimano, Mokoley has a solid collection of their rods and reels. They also have a modest selection of lures.

 

Pathumthip

This relatively big tackle shop is known for stocking a lot of discount gear. The quality isn’t the greatest but it is a good place for the starting angler to select some basic gear from a large selection.

 

Tae Fishing Shop

This small tackle shop has a surprisingly large selection of fly fishing gear as well as other basic fishing gear. I have bought a lot of my fly fishing gear from this shop.

    hi,

      Hi Steve,
      I’m not familiar with what a swing tip is, if you can show me a picture of one I’ll be able to recognise it and point you in the right direction.

  2. Oz, I have never seen a swing tip in Thailand. They are a bite detector which screws into the end of the rod adding an extra eye. They are used as a bite detector for bottom fishing, with a bait. They typically have a soft plastic “hinge” (for want of a better word) which allows them to droop down, almost perpendicular to the true rod tip, soon as the fish bites the tip swings up. Its very sensitive and useful for spotting cautious takes, but as we know its unmistakable when a fish bites in Thailand!!!

    I have been buying from Thye Huat in Bangkok for 6 years now http://www.thyehuat.com

    This small shop is one of two wholesale outlets that will sell to the public at excellent prices.
    I have bought Okuma, shimano and their own brand of carbon rods they have developed.
    These are excellent quality.
    They also have a good range of reels.
    The website http://Www.thyehuat.com has a map with directions to get there, I usually get the taxi to ring them when close to get the exact position as its a one way street. Hope this helps you all.
    I was in Bangkok for the new year and Yee delivered rods to my hotel before they closed for the holidays. Hope this helps you. Regards Andrew

    Hi there people, I hope you can help me, I’ve just started a new work contract on the east coast of Africa and it just so happens to be just off the coast, there are some really rocky areas and plenty of fish as we found out scraping together some gear to see if we could catch anything…… And we did god knows what they were but they had some fight on them.

    I’m by no means a pro at fishing, but I guessing that I will need a beach caster, spinners, weights floats an lours

  6. Dazrayment says:

    Just to add what I mentioned above, i would like the rod itself to be able to break down so a nice size to strap to me rucksack or even a telescopic rod but I don’t think they are as good.

    Please, please can some one give me the right advice????

    On another note, before I started living in Thailand I would be right into fly fishing, but I was always told for some reason the fish in Thailand would not take flys, I live in the north east Thailand about 100Ks from Ubon, where there are plenty of very large rivers, streams and small lakes, can anyone give me advice in what tackle will work good for that are????

    Many thanks in advance.

    Kind regards.

    Daz.
