American Legacy Fishing Company – NEWS FLASH – November 14, 2010
This Issue: Megabass 40% OFF Sale, Open Water Tackle Bags, Tuf-Line XP, Plus Lots More…..
Well, it looks like Christmas season has begun in earnest. Almost every day our local newspaper has two or three times the sales flyers or inserts that it normally does. The actual ads in the paper itself are more numerous than usual as well. Even the Wall Street Journal seems thicker than normal. I suspect this is due to more advertisements rather than added in depth reporting on financial concerns or events. Yep, I think the Christmas season has begun for sure.
Now the gang at American Legacy Fishing hasn’t been asleep through all this. Nope, we figured it out just about as quickly as the rest of you. We all know Christmas is a time when everyone sort of turns up the spend-o-meters. And you know what? It’s lots of fun to do! Kinda’ like dieting for a long time and then tossing not only the diet, but caution to the wind. Ummmm, it’s so much fun!
My take is when we do this we all enjoy it far more than if we haven’t been restrained or conservative, on a diet so-to-speak, beforehand. Christmas season is a time when we make ourselves take time to think of others and how much we love them. Maybe it’s the “legitimate” excuse we all need to slow down and enjoy our family and friends the way we should be doing all year round.
Whatever, I personally love the Christmas season and the goodwill that it ushers in. People seem friendlier, more patient, happier. Well, maybe not if you’re going to, at, or leaving the shopping mall, but otherwise I think this is the case. Yes, Christmas is a great time if you will take the time.
So we have some spectacular Christmas offers. Matter of fact, we have been so busy putting all of these together that we just didn’t have the time (or the space) to include a story this issue. We hope you understand and assure all of you we’ll be back after the holidays with some great stuff and really interesting articles. But for now, it’s time to get to the business at hand.
We have a spectacular Megabass sale just started and running for two weeks only. Absolutely a killer of a sale. Prices have never been this low. Be sure to read about this below. It’s first come-first served! We also have an incredible new line of tackle bags and organizers, Open Water, that we think are truly the best-of-the-best. See below for the details. There’s lots more was well, so be sure not to miss a word of this newsletter!
Finally, a very special “thank you” to all of our wonderful customers. October was a record month for American Legacy Fishing and it’s all due to you. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We truly appreciate your friendship and the confidence you place in us. You ARE the reason we are here.

Here’s the situation: The Japanese Yen has increased in value by over 20% which means our cost for Megabass Lures has Gone Up almost 25%! This is not good.

DISCLAIMER: We cannot be responsible for marital stress, arguments, or the fact that your spouse may not understand why you are buying far more fishing gear than she/he thinks necessary.

This can be fatal (older voice of experience here!).
Open Water Tackle Bags and Accessories Best of the Best and Now In Stock………………
Open Water Tackle Bags won the 2010 ICAST Best Tackle Management Equipment Award. We were impressed! Open Water at one time made Shimano’s Tackle bags and accessories, so we were even more impressed. We’re not sure why the two companies parted ways, but are sure glad they did since Shimano’s loss has proven to be our gain.
When G. Loomis discontinued their Escape Line of Tackle Bags two years ago we knew we would eventually have to find a high quality replacement. And we have been looking ever since. Without much success. That is, until this year. We found Open Water at ICAST and immediately knew this was far better than any tackle management system we had ever looked at. Far, far better!
It isn’t an expansive line, but what is offered is just so well designed and functional. There are only 34 part numbers, and if you take out the utility boxes and rod wraps there are only 28. But, they all rock and we are convinced these will definitely answer a need most of us have for a real high quality tackle management system that makes sense. And folks, these bags make sense!
Beyond nine different tackle bags there is also two duffle bags, four reel storage bags (one for the largest big game reels), jig storage bags, surf bags, lure warp bags, binders, and even a fighting belt. Every bag and accessory is so well made using only the highest quality materials. 900 or 600 denier material, oversize zippers and buckles, EVA water resistant bottoms, extremely comfortable and useful handles and straps, and purely functional designs. These bags are simply the best we have ever found.
We’re sure everyone of you already has several tackle bags, but also suspect they may not meet your needs today or may even be a “best compromise”. If that’s the case then you owe it to yourself to take a look at Open Water. Good stuff, reasonably priced, and available now. They also would make fantastic Christmas gifts for someone you know, even it that person is the one you see in the mirror every morning! Take a look. You’ll be glad you did.
Tuf-Line XP Joins the American Legacy Fishing Company Line-Up…………………..
We’ve been carrying Western Filament’s Tuf-Line XP for about two years in our store, but haven’t offered it on our web site up until now. Recently many, many customers have asked us to do this, so we listened and now every Tuf-Line XP line test and spool size is available on line.
Tuf-Line XP is a more compact, smaller diameter braided line that packs extremely well on reels. Our experience is that XP answers the need for a braided line that has superior knot performance and resists “micro knots” extremely well. These lines cast remarkably far and seem to resist abrasion better than many other brands of braided line while being priced very competitively.
Tuf-Line XP is available in 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 65, 80, 100, 130, 150, 200, and 250 lb test with four non-bleeding (fading) color choices: Green, Red, Yellow, and White. Each line comes in 100, 150, 300, 600, 1200, and 1500 yard spools. Currently we have all of these in stock. We can also order ANY Western Filament line for you. Just ask.
We know choosing a line can be confusing, especially when it comes to a braided line. Our take is there are only a handful of braided lines that really deliver the performance serious anglers are after and are actually made in the USA. We think we now carry the two best brands, Tuf-Line XP and Power Pro. Both have features that make them special and worth considering by any angler who is serious about his or her sport. We are always ready to help you choose what line best suits your needs, Just drop us a note or give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you make sure you’ve got the best line for your application.
Shimano Tiralejo Surf Rods are Now In Stock……………
OK, we know the G. Loomis surf rods are expensive. They’re the world’s Best surf rods, but can certainly be “budget busters” with their premium price. Many of you ask us why we didn’t offer a more reasonably priced surf rod for those of you who don’t want to spend the bucks on the Loomis IMX surf rods. So we did some research and found some absolutely fantastic, more reasonably priced surf rods right in our own “backyard”. The Shimano Tiralejo (who chose this name?) rods certainly fill this need.
There are 13 spinning models ranging from 7’6″ long to 12′ long and 5 casting models from 8′ long to 12′ long. All feature an adjustable reel seat that can be moved up or down the grip. All are Shimano’s innovative TC4K blank material and come with Fuji New Concept Alconite guides and tip top. All but 3 rods are fast action. Best of all, they all carry Shimano’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. Prices range from $219.99 to $349.99 which we consider a heck of a deal; given these rods premium components and extremely light overall weight.
Right now we have every Shimano Tiralejo Surf Rod in stock and can ship immediately. If you’re a big surf fisherman these rods are definitely worth a look.
FREE Genuine G. Loomis Hat with EVERY New G. Loomis Rod…..
We like our customers! If you come in the store we can easily tell you just how much we like you. But, if you order on-line or phone an order in it’s tougher to do. That’s why we include a FREE G. Loomis hat with each and every new G. Loomis rod you buy. Just our way of saying “Thanks!”
