Welcome to the Slate Run Tackle Shop!


A Little About Us

Phillip Tomb established Slate Run in 1794. Vast virgin white pine and hemlock forests covered the steep mountains and valleys, inspiring settlers to call this area The Black Forest. Elk, mountain lions, and wolves roamed these enchanted wild lands. The lumber industry discovered the area, a lumber boom ensued, and the first store in Slate Run was born. One acre of forest produced 120,000 board feet of lumber in those days. Logs were floated down river until a railway was established in 1883. The lumber boom ended, but the store remained.

Our store's mission is simple: To provide polite, friendly service to each customer that enters the store and to make sure that his or her vacation is better because of us. In other words, we aim to treat every customer the way we would like to be treated when we are on vacation. Very simple!
