Bob's Bait & Tackle
4863 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19129
They're located right by the Wissahickon Transfer Station. Also right by the Schuylkill River and Wissahickon creek.
I've been going to this shop ever since I was about 10 years old. They're not the biggest shop by far but they usually have in stock all the basics and the classic gear you might need. The main guy who runs the place is a older guy named Doug, he's my Yoda 😃 for fishing. He's friendly and packed full of knowledge, the guys been fishing the Tri-state area for longer than I've been alive! He's a great resource to have as an angler.
Check them out and keep an old mom and pop bait and tackle store running!
The only bad part is that they're only open from late February to the end of November-December depending.
Any days a good day for fishing! Tight lines,
