Thanks for reviewing and it was a pleasure to get you sorted out! Hope the rest of your trip was enjoyable and thanks for using Island Cycles.

May seem an odd combination - cycling and angling - but there is a reasonable selection of fishing tackle sold here. I found the owner very helpful and he provided excellent advice on fishing in the area, plus on nearby islands.

Many thanks for that, appreciate the review! It is indeed a little "one stop shop" as you say, an odd combination which has worked pretty well for us. Glad we could help and hope you had a great trip in the area.
