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