Early Black Friday Fishing Sales
We expect to see many early bird deals on fishing gear earlier than in previous years.
With the current economy and the increasing high-interest rates, there are likely to be some very good discounts this November. Over the past year supply chain issues have caused a lot of issues in stocking fishing gear, and many customers are finding out-of-stock problems, especially with newly released products. We believe that there will be a big push from online stores to lower inventories for any older fishing tackle.
When Are The Black Friday Ads Released?
Based on past years, usually, retailers will start to publish their Black Friday deals in the first two weeks of October.
What Are The Best Fishing Deals During Black Friday?
The best deals are going to be in three areas:
Out-of-season fishing apparel
Excess stocks of certain tackle
The previous stock has been updated or there is a new model has been just released
Don’t expect great discounts on the latest fishing gear releases.

Black Friday Sales – Buy Online vs Visit the Store?
If you are like us we would prefer to be out fishing rather than queuing up outside a store in the early hours! So we prefer to avoid the madness and buy online.
However, you could miss out on certain super flash sales by not visiting the store. Those one-off super black Friday bargains can be awesome although rare to find.
If you are not planning to go fishing, then do some homework beforehand through the internet and at the same time take a trip down to the store and see if you can “catch” that bargain basement rod or reel that you were looking for. These offers are real-time, and many are not advertised!
Don’t miss out this year on getting that rod or reel you have been eying for months. The chances are that it will be at the lowest price for the entire year.
Look for the older product ranges and models, this is where the deep discounts are to be found!
