Martin Tackle Mfg - Online Sales
Welcome to the home of the original Reel Magic Lure
You will find the vast majority of what was once sold from the Martin Tackle facility on Minor Avenue in Seattle back in the 1980's available here. Inventory from days gone by still remains and we make it available on a first-come, first-served basis. In some cases, items that are sold out will never be replenished, so get it while it lasts. Whether you are a serious collector or an avid angler, the lures still work in open water today! If you don't see something you once knew was available, just send us an email - it doesn't hurt to ask! Most all of what you see here is original inventory from the 80's. Some items were never packaged and remain in bulk, in which case there will be "aftermarket" packaging. Let us know if you have any questions about any of our items.
Ordering is easy!
Browse our web pages to find the colors and sizes you desire. Send us an email with the following info on the items you are interested in:
We will make sure that we have what you want, in the size you want it, in the specified color, in the quantity you need without any obligation to buy. Emails are checked daily.
If you prefer to fax your order, you may do so at 509-671-9971. Please DO NOT send us your credit card information this way. Indicate all the same information as you would if you were emailing your requests.
Accepted Payment Methods
We currently accept Paypal and Postal Money Orders, but please understand that shipment of your order will not take place until payment is verified - with Paypal this is a lot faster. Money orders have to be deposited first.
Once we have come to an agreement, a Paypal Invoice will be generated and emailed to you for payment and once the payment has cleared, the package will be shipped.
We are looking into less expensive methods of accepting credit card purchases for those who are interested in making purchases over the phone. Updates will be posted here.
The prices reflected here are less than what we have listed on our E-bay store. If you inquire through our private email (below), you will get the lower prices shown here on our website. If you send us questions through E-bay, we are obligated to sell to you through that website (at the higher prices listed there).
At this time, we do not have a wholesale or reseller program.
Shipping and Sales Tax
We are an online business only, there are no customer pickups. If we sell to a customer in Washington State, we will have to charge you the sales tax for your area. The Washington State DOR has a utility that we use in determining the correct sales tax amount and tax is charged on both the price of the merchandise and the shipping and handling total. This is a state requirement.
There are no minimum orders, however, to make it most cost-effective for the customer, you will want to order several instead of a few. Most packages are sent via Priority Mail with delivery confirmation and insurance, which means I have to charge at least $5-6 for shipping. That said, you can get up to $50.00 worth of Reel Magics for that one shipping and handling charge. I will always quote you the final price with sales tax, shipping and merchandise before the sale, just so there are no surprises.
