Locally Owned and Family-Operated

All of us here have a love of fishing and the outdoors and that is a passion we want to share with you. Whether you have been fishing for years, have never picked up a rod before, or are looking for that perfect gift to take back home, we are here for every step of your journey.

We primarily sell fishing gear but have now expanded into clothing, giftware/souvenirs, ammunition, hunting and camping accessories. Brands include Simms, Gibbs, Penn, Ugly Stick, Federal Ammunition, Under Armour, Still North Design, Hatley, Led Lenser, Leatherman, SOG and Kelty.

Kitimat’s original hand-tied barbless marabou salmon jig is exclusive to our store and when you pay us a visit, you are likely going to see one of us sitting at our table tying away.


Whether fishing the river, lake, or ocean, a fishing license is one of those must-haves. Licenses can be purchased online or through any licensed vendor. Here at Bradley’s, we want to make your fishing adventures as easy as possible, we are licensed to sell both freshwater and saltwater licenses. If you have an old license bring it along to make things move a little quicker.
