Handler Fishing Supply 4 YR Anniversary Sale and Event

"I was tired of walking into fishing stores with a staff who didn’t get it. So I decided to put together a store that didn’t suck. That’s what we’re going for. We will never try to sell you something you don’t need." Owner, Adrian Martinez

Handler Fishing Supply, a full service fishing tackle supplier, who recently opened a new store in Merritt Island, FL, celebrates four years of serving Brevard County’s recreational inshore and offshore fishing customers with their annual Shimano product showcase event.

This year’s event and tent sale will boast the addition of local Bote SUP guides and retailers, All Water Adventures, and nautical décor and custom taxidermist, The Fish Mount Store, and be held on both Saturday and Sunday, October 26th and 27th.

Event guests can expect storewide sales, exciting raffle items, and knowledgeable experts on hand to answer questions, demo products, and offer educational experiences.

A showcase of the new Shimano products by the manufacturer rep will be available to check out with a focus on the different applications of all the new tackle and lures to give attendees that extra edge.

Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) displays by All Water Adventures will be on location with the Bote SUP board rep available to answer questions while showcasing the different ways to enjoy using paddle boards in this area. A demonstration on ways to set the boards up to fish off of them will be a highlight as this use of the boards is gaining popularity in Brevard’s waterways. New and used boards will be available and on sale. In addition, real demos will be offered in nearby Sykes Creek for those interested.

The Fish Mount Store, who specializes in fish taxidermy, will also be setting up a display to show how fish mounts are made and showcase the different aspects of what makes a high quality mount.

Raffling off items such as a new Shimano Stradic 8000FJ, a new GoPro camera, and a gorgeous Wee Sailfish mount for a novel $5 raffle ticket are a draw for any outdoor sport or fishing enthusiast. Every person who attends the event gets their first raffle ticket free. Each additional ticket may be purchased for $5, or 5 tickets for $20.

Handler Fishing Supply owner, Adrian Martinez, and his educated staff are focused on creating new happy customers and maintaining their loyal ones through events such as these.
