We all know that many sites allow you to order on line. Joe doesn't do Internet orders on most shop items, though he does do a "bit" of eBaying specific items from time to time.   Honestly, part of what makes Granite State Rod/Reel Repair & Tackle so special is stopping by and hearing all of the "fish stories"!  You won't get that at those "big box stores".  You may not be able to order on line, but when you come in you'll get advice on what colors work, or where it has worked well.  It's worth the ride!
