About Us

Fergo's Tackle World has been a family owned business since 1960 that's always focused on providing you with knowledge and gear to ensure you have the most fun possible out on the water.

Yes we have great prices & specials, yes we have a huge range of fishing and spearfishing products, and yes we will price match any Australian based retailer, but we're more than that.

At Fergo's our main focus is providing the knowledge and expertise we've gathered over the many years of fishing and spearfishing we've done ourselves. Why? Well because at the end of the day if you walk out of our store and you're happy with any advice you've been given on the products or where/how to use them, and then you go out and it actually works, chances are you'll be back in next time to find out more info. It keeps our business running and ensures you're having a great time, it's a win win!

We love what we do and we want to pass that on to you. So come into either of our Wollongong or Taren Point stores today, talk to our staff and walk out feeling confident about your next fishing or spearfishing adventure!
