We will be adjusting these posts soon. This is to make way for a directory function on our dedicated site.

Teman Setia Tackle (The one on the Main Road)


There are funnily two shops with the same name in Port Klang. This could mean: They are related, an ugly old feud or both of them together. Lets assume the most exciting on till we are made in the know.

Where to buy fishing supplies in Malaysia / KL / Young Pudu

Shops a very old one.

Situated in a central part of KL this place has been around forever. This is one of the oldest shops in the city, possibly the oldest dedicated towards fishing. Suspected family business.

Like many antiquated looking shops, these chaps also turned down the opportunity to be photographed. Fearing their luck will run away with the pictures and the competition will get an upper hand by knowing their “secrets”  the requests were adhered too.

Taylor’s Lake, Private Colleges should be like this.

I’m from Taylors too. Look at where its gotten me…

Situated or more like cordoned of in one part of Sunway this establishment is proof that all those years slugging in shop lots and drab blocks has finally paid off. The students here have an environment unlike any other. The chaps in the fishing club are quite lucky.

Funny how a single word can floor a rebel. I guess kudos to the chaps who paid attention to detail. We respect that.

if not private, public then?
