Tackle and other equipment


A number of local tackle suppliers specialise in providing anglers with all the necessary kit. They will ensure that your equipment is up to standard and in some cases can hire equipment if you need it only for a short outing on the water. The three main suppliers in and around Turangi township and the riverside are:
Creel Tackle House and Café (also the best coffee on the riverside) 
Sporting Life Turangi
Greig Sports                    

Further afield, in Taupo, you will not go wrong with:
Taupo Rod and Tackle 
Taupo Fly and Gun (part of Hunting and Fishing NZ)
