Discount Fishing - a must visit for any Angler!

Mike decided to restock the Fish Creek Spinners, so I loaded up a bunch of bins of 3 packs and headed down to Discount Fishing - Santa Fe Drive, Denver CO.

I always get excited making the trip. I gotta say that it's a must visit for any fisherman. Talk about Angling sensory overload. There's something very special about the place, cultivated over years and years of Colorado fishing.

Here's Mike pricing some trolling cowbells (older picture - I missed running into Mike this trip)

Here's the FCS Real Estate today.

Fish Creek Spinners at Discount Fishing - Santa Fe Drive - Denver, Colorado

I've got to hand it to Mike, he knows how to build a good team. His staff's outstanding and always helpful. You have questions they'll take the time to get answers. Need to find something, they know where it is, including fish and fishing locations.

Where to catch what, and what to use to catch them.

Wander around and enjoy the tradition, bring a friend or younger fishing partner. Take my word for it, it's rewarding time you'll not find in very many places.

What can beat a bag full of new fishing tackle?

Well.. maybe a couple Fish Creek Spinners in it, would be worth a try - Get'em Wet!

The guys I met today, are a great asset to the business. They're anxious to help and you'll usually find them paired with a customer answering questions and communicating about fishing.

Caught a break and took a couple quick pictures.

Take that time, when they're busy, to wander around and check out the place.

Sure is a feast your eyes; all the products, techniques, tackle and fishing tradition. Lots of tackle!

In my opinion, Discount Fishing is a must stop for any fisherman that needs to charge his batteries and maybe part with a Ben Franklin or two!

Unlike the plastic outdoors mega marts, this place has 'true' character. Years and years of angling history hanging around to be figured out and enjoyed.

The business occupies a pretty good sized space and it's filled with tackle and gear wall to wall and top to bottom. It's on the floor, it's on the ceiling, it's on the walls. And guess what? The walls seat a near endless array of pegboard displays that pivot and swing from side to side, each side covered with tackle and gear.

Did I mention the pegboards hang from walls, also covered from floor to ceiling with fishing tackle and gear?

Austin Parr was nice enough to send me a few pictures, the walleyes fresh off the water this morning.

Awesome! Just Sayin!


Don't be in a hurry when you stop, there's just 'too' much take in!

Wander around, get in the zone.

I usually walk out with a tackle buzz - Just sayin!
