Massive Japanese manufacturer brings new products to UK tackle shops.
The world’s biggest independent line company, Sunline, has made a return to UK and Ireland tackle shops after a decade.
Being distributed by Nice Fish! Distributions, the UK will be seeing a wide range of Sunline products, including the Japanese company’s four and eight-strand braids, fluorocarbons and monos back on the shelves.
The news is thanks to one man’s enthusiasm for the company’s products. Adam White, owner of Nice Fish! Distributions is a self proclaimed fan of the brand and has been using the line for many years.
“I’ve been using Sunline products for ages, but about 10 years ago it stopped distributing in the UK, so I started sourcing it myself from Japan for my own personal use,” said Adam. “Slowly the orders became bigger and bigger as my fishing friends want line as well. I already worked in the tackle trade so in the end I contacted Sunline about becoming an exclusive distributor over here. The rest is history.”
At present the Sunline products that are available in the UK are only a small selection of the company’s available lines. Although according to Adam we could see much more in the future.
“Sunline produces so many products that it’s simply impossible for us to carry them all,” he continued. “We will also only stock what we know will sell, but as our reputation grows we’ll look at expanding our range in the future.”
