Since  then we have earned the nickname of "The Fisherman's Candy Store", so much so that we added a listing to the yellow pages under that name because people kept saying that the Candy Store was not listed!


As we grow in business, so does our store.  Several years ago was a roof over, which is helping to provide a more comfortable experience while you shop.  Our new owner, Jimmy Durham, is continually making improvements, while adding to your shopping pleasure, but not taking any more from your wallet than necessary to remain a discount tackle store.  We are now selling all new, never used, rods and reels; an ever-growing selection of lures; apparel, sunglasses, and accessories; and a larger selection of marine products.

Bridgemaster Fishing Products was started some time during 1976 in Jensen Beach, Florida, in a garage by twin brothers, Ron & Don Hardy, building and repairing rods.  As the business grew, an opportunity presented itself for Ron Hardy to move the business to Central Florida while expanding into supplying the store with a multitude of fishing tackle supplies.  Since then, under the former owner's wife, Josie Hardy, the business grew by leaps and bounds in both the retail and wholesale markets, offering new, reconditioned and discontinued merchandise.

Unlike most brick and mortar businesses that have reverted to online sales, we have evolved into offering more of the latest and most innovative rods, reels, and lures the fishing industry has to offer.  We have a huge assortment of fishing rods, reels, combos, freshwater and saltwater lures, terminal tackle, rod building components, marine supplies, shirts, hats, sunglasses, and jewelry for most every type of fishing.  We provide or refer to several services needed in the fishing industry.  We are definitely the largest tackle store in Central Florida, and possibly all of Florida!  Conveniently located right in the middle of the state.  You can't get the feel of a rod and reel in your hands online like you can in person.  The feel makes all the difference - come "try one on for size".
