I have been to Coeymans Landing, Conroy's in Watervliet, Hudson River Bait in Renssealer, River Basin in Catskill. All of these places are very easy and helpful to do business with! Don't forget Riverview Marine in Catskill, too! Right on the Catskill Creek, and an avid fisherman! But I had never heard of Flying Arrow, and will give them a try!
It is nice to do business with the local stores, as they are more knowledgeable about what is needed.....when you go to Dick's, it is hard to even find a salesperson, let alone one that knows ANYTHING!
