IM spoiled being from Kansas City i have a Bass Pro, and a Cabelas and I think there was also a redhed but never went there. Right where I lived. Now Im here in nc the only place to get tackle here is walmart( never has the good stuff) or dicks sporting goods( always way over priced)

but they are building a Gander Mountain in the old sams club building on skibo road. Which means quality stuff here in Fayetteville. Finally!

It will be nice to a wider selection than Wal Mart or Dick's has to offer. I understand that they are planning a Grand opening sometime around May 30th.

You should check out Tarheel Fish & Game on Raeford Road or A.K. McCallum. Both have pretty good tackle selections. I've been particullary impressed with how AKs has expanded their offerings.

I noticed a lot of cars out front of the New Gander this morning and decided to stop by and see how things were coming. Looks like they're planning their soft opening for May 21st. I thought maybe Wellcraft Dave may need to get the Tackle Monkey off his back.

While driving on I95 I saw that there was a billboard advertising the new gander mountain. Saying they were now hiring. Looking good for the home team.

That's right Forrest,, Unanimous!! Tackle Monkey Junkies stand and be counted!!! Unite in the name of.... err.. somethin.. or other... but whatever it is... I'm sure it's important!! :)

Hmmm.... there's gotta be some kind of special ring or special handshake to identify our fellow brotheren TM Junkies... oh wait... that's right,,, the NCAngler.com hat!! :)

Ya know on them WWII planes they'd put a Jap flag on the side to designate a kill... Hmm.. wonder what the criteria would be to have a TM added to the side of the NCAngler hat???? any thoughts... (one monkey would equal per $1,000 spent?? or tackle from 5 different places I.e. Dick's, Sports Authority, Local tackle shop, Walmart, Bass Pro and have it verifiable would count towards the monkey insignia award....

:D

12 Step Tackle Monkey Junkie requirement

1. Have the burning desire to own every lure manufactured or produced
2. Must have feelings of tackle inadequecy for any fishing situation
3. Be diligent in the effort of One-up's-manship with your fishin neighbor/bud
4. Forsight to find your chi by having the proper balance of new and classic collection of tackle
5. Display respect for fellow Junkies, hate the game - but not the players
6. You become a Seasoned TMJ when you're down to one credit card and no-one knows about it, even your closest tackle monkey friends - when you gotta have it now TMJ purchase power - tactic used very competitively amongst savy TMJ's -- your one purchase will send all the other TMJ's into a frenzied furvor... ;)
7. When shop owners and clerks greet you by name - You've achieved VIP TMJ status
8. When you hit your kid up for some cash for a lure/line/rod-reel combo... TMJ!
9. If you thought about makin babies to sell to Chinese couples to increase TMJ cash flow - you could then be considered a TMJ ( I hear they pay $10K for baby boys!) :eek:
10. You qualify as a TMJ if you have more insurance on your tackle than your home
11. Grand TMJ status achieved when you can make Ray Charles flinch from the sight of your tackle
12. Almost without saying, you must involve youngsters into the vicious cycle
