TY: Our customers are amazing and keeping them up-to-date with the best products from around the world is always good fun. 

RFW: What makes your customers keep coming back for more?  

TY: I’d say definitely our customer service. We know all of our customers and do our best to make sure everyone is happy, all the staff and I have made good friends working at Tackle HQ. 

RFW: How have you adapted the business to life under COVID?  

TY: Less people in the store, free shipping on all orders, lots of rig-tying and some beer drinking!  

RFW: What’s a hot tackle item in your store at the moment?  

TY: Drone fishing products, Yeti, anything ASWB, Ocean’s Legacy.  

RFW: If you were Fisheries Minister for a day and you could change one thing, what would it be? 

TY: I’d give recfishers more access to some of the good fishing spots that are currently closed.  

RFW: What’s your favourite fishing destination in WA and why?  

TY: Is this even a question? The Monte’s to fish for GTs!
