    No need to be alarmed, it is not a dieing matter... unless I don't get the help I need and can not fish anymore!

    With that said I sould probably explain:

    I am looking to make a couple of purchases in bulk and need some of your advice, and insights as I have not had very good luck getting bulk rates or deals at all.

    I would like to purchase anywhere from 500-1000 6/0 circle hooks and also as many large 3 way swivels. I am running out quickly and the local stores are brushing me off trying to charge me more for having to order so many specially for me.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated! Help a brother stay on the water! Our local stores only have small gear and aren't friendly enough to help me, but they always want to hear my stories and see my pictures!

    HAHA

    i thought i stayed on top of my tackle...i have prob. 2 thousand sinkers molded, and enough hooks for a few years. i guess when you buy, you buy BULK.... do you really need that many at once though? maybe you should take up weekend diving and retrieve some off that stuff.? i fish some snaggy stuff, but you must just snag everything!! lol:cool2:
