Boomtown fishing tackle shop is found out on the north side of the city within the Meechok Plaza complex. They stock a decent range of tackle for a small shop and the owner is knowledgeable and helpful. When I last visited he had no “baitrunner” type reels in stock, but he has sold them in the past (not Shimano, but a high quality reel with the “baitrunner” feature) and apparently plans to carry them in the future. He also speaks excellent english – something of a rarity in Chiang Mai tackle shops.
They sell a range of tour packages and provide a fishing lessons service – even for children; now that is brave! I am not aware of anywhere else in Chiang Mai offering this service.
Be aware that as well as being a tackle shop he sells “exotic pets” (reptiles and the like), so be prepared for an initial assault on the senses – that lovely odour la pet shop… Don’t let that put you off though, it’s not bad, and he is a very friendly guy with a well chosen range of tackle on offer; and did I mention… he speaks excellent English!
You can call them on: 081-6981964 , 053-852739 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
They also have their own website: click here to visit
