What is TackleSpy?

TackleSpy is an online marketplace where people make, sell, and buy fishing tackle & goods. We’re a community advocating for small businesses & individuals, not big box stores. When you become a Vendor on, you unlock the ability to sell whatever it is you make – be it an awesome Ned rig, irresitable football jigs, or “the best swimbait your fishing buddies have ever used” – to a growing community of thousands of enthusastic anglers around the country.

TackleSpy allows you to gain access to customers beyond your local fishing club. We are fishermen ourselves, on the weekend. Monday through Friday? We’re tech gurus and digital marketers. We aren’t masters at making incredible lures – but you are. TackleSpy is where we can team up.

We’ve got the platform. You’ve got the lures. Let’s be partners.
