With summer coming to a close, the beach umbrellas, volleyball nets, and sun-worshippers will be heading inland, leaving the surf and the sand to the fishermen.
Surf fishermen are always seeking new ways to trek their tackle to the water’s edge, without exhausting themselves before it’s time to do battle with the big fish that swim beyond the breakers. Calcutta offers a number of tackle transportation solutions to help surfcasters keep gear organized and close at hand however they prefer to fish the beach.
