Mr de With said this fishing season would shape up as one of the best due to large amounts of wet season rain in the catchments of popular fishing spots across the Katherine region. Dont get caught short on the water without your favourite lures and tackle, stock up now, Mr de With said. The dedicated fisho said the Victoria River had received some of the best rain in ten years and conditions were perfect. Shop assistant Sandy Fraser said the store will be fully stocked with fishing and camping gear ready for the Easter catalogue sale, which is one of Rod and Rifle Tackleworlds busiest times of year. Everyone loves a bargain and our catalogues supersede most with amazing discounts, particularly the camping catalogues, Ms Fraser said. Mr de With said not only is Rod and Rifle Tackleworld the one stop fishing and camping shop, it is also Katherines major supplier of bikes and accessories. New in store at Rod and Rifle Tackleworld are now lockaway gun safes, truck boxes, tool chests and trollies. This is innovative security, featuring swing and slide technology, unique anti-pry technology and fully welded design, Mr de With said. These premium high security safes are fire and water resistant. Another great product that recently arrived in store is the new trail cameras. A motion sensor camouflaged camera that can be hidden effectively to keep your car and its contents safe while you are living it up on the water, Mr de With said. The cameras have black LED technology which means they take undetected imagery at night. The team love the idea of the new digital camera binoculars, which works by magnifying the image, capturing it and saving it. Rod and Rifle Tackleworld also have a members scheme which is free to join and gives customers discounts and special offers. Being a member of Rod and Rifles VIP Club means an invitation to the stores VIP nights, which are great fun with sausage sizzles, giveaways, prizes and fantastic specials. So if you are a local and live in Katherine make sure you go and see the team to join up. Right now is the perfect time to get into Rod and Rifle Tackleworld so you dont miss out on one of the best opportunities to get on the water, Mr de With said. Were here to help with knowledge, advice and definitely the right price. Rod and Rifle Tackleworld is located on Giles Street.
