    A customer was looking to buy fishing tackle as he knew we had a fishing tackle room just off the main shop, well we did last time he was in the shop.
    We did used to sell fishing tackle, and a lot of it, when the town had a thriving holiday camp of over 500 caravans that attracted literally thousands of holidaymakers every fortnight over the summer, but the last caravan left over 20 years ago and in its place is a 350-home residential estate.
    As the holiday market changed from two-week stays to day visitors the sale of fishing tackle dried up and we stopped selling it completely nearly 12 years ago. As for a dedicated fishing tackle room, I had almost forgotten about it, it was so long ago. I now use the room as an office and space to weigh up loose birdseed.
