    While I agree their online presence has never been strong (way better than it used to be), I think it would be a huge miss for them to be selling their reels online. If you support buying direct to consumer sales in the fishing industry, you are playing a small part in putting tackle shops out...

    Let's See Your Lures

    Okay guys, let's see your lures. Marlin, tuna, wahoo or bass lures, doesn't matter. I'll get this started with some of my Coggin lures. I've added quite a few more of Steve Coggin's creations to my arsenal, so I'll add some pics of those soon.
