I really have to check out New Brighton sports next time I am in Christchurch. I did not even know it existed before mulletman started promoting it at the end of his posts.
I really only visit Hamills, Mikes Fishing, The Complete Angler and Fishermans loft (and store next to fisherman loft). I also check out the discount bins in Smith City Super store and Rebels sport.
Tried to visit fishermans warehouse (or whatever it is called) down by the settling ponds but it was closed the one time I found it.
