I'm headed back to the USA early next month and plan on getting a few must have fishing items that I can't seem to find here. I'd be happy to pick up a few things for club members if there is anything you need. Keep in mind, space is limited in my luggage so... Anyway, let me know.

Just remember no warranties and in some case parts for imported reels.

I would also tread careful bringing to much in mate, otherwise you might be in for a bit of GST... $400NZD they will apply it...
But no doubt about it, the choice over there is way better than you will ever get here... no warranties applies here, but if prepared to send back state side its not an issue, just a pain in the arse not to mention the time it would take, but I do know of some horror stories :!:

Can you take possession of a few lures for me please from a couple of suppliers. Will get them to deliver to you, not many, just around 12 or so. Will PM/phone details.
Cheers

As I am technically here on holiday visa status at the moment, I don't have to worry about GST. I'm just a tourist bringing along some fishing gear with me.

Regarding a reel purchase, I'd be happy to buy a reel. That said, depending on the price I would need cash up front as I can't shell out a ton of money and get stuck with something I don't want/need or can't afford.
