Product Service 

On top of our extensive inventory, we also expert line spooling on our in-house Triangle Sport HD140 Line Winder. We can spool anything from a 1000 size reel, all the way up to offshore big game reels.  We carry a wide variety of line types and brands from hollow or solid braids, to monofilament and fluorocarbon. For big game anglers, we offer multiple types of rigging options, from a standard served connection to a monofilament top-shot, splicing loops into hollow line to allow for loop to loop connections using a wind-on top-shot.  For the jigging and popping crowd, Tomo’s Tackle also stock’s pre-made jigging and casting wind-on’s using Seaguar Premier, and we can also rig reels using friction knots such as the PR or FG knot.  If your preferences are otherwise, we can always custom make any wind-on you would like, as we carry multiple lines from Jinkai, Momoi, Seaguar, and Yo-Zuri.

Tomo's Tackle also offers rod service, and we can even repair rod tips while you while you wait in the store.  We can also repair the running guides, as well as any damage your rod might have encountered.  Please call or come in for an estimate on rod repair!
