None. However, that depends on what you need, and whether for saltwater or fresh. I buy from several sources, but depends on what I need. Most have similar prices on some products, and they may be less on some. Then there's the shipping cost to consider that can make what seems to be a great deal, not so great. So, I shop.

I would prefer to be able to go to a local shop, but don't have any close by. I make some of the lures & rigs I may use, so then it's the components I look around to buy. I recently bought some fly tying materials from Tackle Direct in NJ. They were recommended to me when I was looking for some lures, and found from browsing their site, they had those materials which had been difficult to find in the colors I bought. They shipped it fairly quickly considering this virus issue is affecting that. On another fishing site, several others have said they have had problems with them recently, with orders not being shipped in a timely manner. So, sometimes hit or miss. One fellow had ordered a rod, and wasn't very happy, so depends on what it might be, and in stock or ordered. Some of them were complaining about orders not arriving for 2 weeks, but with this virus situation, IMO, that's not unreasonable.

I used to buy a good bit of terminal tackle from the Terminal Tackle Co. in NY and they've since closed up, after the owner passed away. They were one of the best around, and I haven't found a single source that had as many products with reasonable prices.

I've bought lures from Fishermen's Source, also in NJ, but I watch their sales for better prices. The same with a company called Big Fish Sports. I've bought various items from them.

There's a fellow on Ebay, uses the seller name fishgrain, who is also in NJ, and I've bought some things from him too and never a problem. His prices aren't always the best on everything, but sometimes I'll find an auction that's a very good price. I believe he has a store too, or had one. He's been a great person to deal with.

I've occasionally bought from Capt Harry's in Florida. Have bought from the Saltwater Edge in RI, but mostly for fly fishing.

I used to buy from a couple of shops in MD when I lived there. Anglers Sports Center in Annapolis is one, and they will ship, but you have to call them, as they don't have a website with products listed. They're a family run business, and have been there since I was a kid, a couple of generations. There's also AllTackle.com, they have both a store & website sales. There's TG Tochterman in Baltimore, a shop that's been in business for over 100 years. Good people and they're another that you need to call to find out if they have something you need. They carry a lot of different tackle, and some hard to find items.

I've bought various soft plastics from places such as Lockett's Lures in PA. They make what they sell and have good variety.

Others, Melton Tackle, Tacklesupplydepot.com, J&H Tackle, Fishermansheadquarters.com

I've not bought from Haddrell's Point Tackle, but do check with them sometimes since they're not too far away. Many of other sources I may use are mostly for freshwater tackle and fly fishing or fly tying & lure making related items. Those are places like Barlow's Tackle in TX, Jann's Netcraft in OH, or Lure Parts Online in IL. They all sell some items that are not only for tackle making.

There's others too that I've bought from, that don't come to mind at the moment. I hope this helps you.

Tackle is always perform a good job in fishing and if someone tell me about canoe guide that was use in tackle.
Even if its a little more costly, I try to always support our local tackle shops. And that's not always the case either; sometimes the online price is the same or more than I can buy locally. Honestly I think it all evens out. Some local shops will price match also. Plus, you get to chat with the guys in the shop about local trends and what they've been seeing and hearing. Some of that knowledge can be the difference between a great day on the water and getting skunked.
