Best place for tackle shopping is in Singapore! you get the best of Jap and other tackles there. Don't forget to check out Anglers Outfitter also at beach road, talk to Alvin... they are the pioneer in jigging and popping.
Just in case anybody was wondering what time it is in Singapore. Right now, it is Tuesday 11:17am Central in Texas. It is 12:17am Wednesday morning in Singapore. Here is a world clock site. Singapore is 13 hours ahead of us. Bad case of jet lag in Minnows future. Hope you are having fun, I hear Singapore is a fantastic city. One of these days, I hope to visit. http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/
