About Us

"DeCoro Fishing Supplies has been supplying gear and equipment to both commercial and recreational anglers for the past 20 years"
                                                                                                         
Based in Te Puke initially, DeCoro Fishing Supplies moved to 149 Totara Street, Mt Maunganui, Tauranga  in 1992. As major suppliers to the Tauranga and Mt Maunganui commercial and recreational fishing fleet and visiting boats, the essence of DeCoro Fishing Supplies business is service and convenience. The new, bigger location provides both.

DeCoro was, at first, a maker of fishing gill nets and still retails a full range of nets from standard to custom made throughout New Zealand. However, the use of nets commercial and recreational is less prevalent today, with other methods, particularly long-lining, producing a better quality of catch. DeCoro imports commercial and recreational fishing gear and accessories from all around the globe and is one of New Zealands largest wholesalers of a wide range of products to clients locally and as far afield as Australia and throughout the Pacific Islands.
                                                                                                                                        
With the fishing industry in New Zealand undergoing constant change, a substantial warehouse stocked with high quality and diverse product allows DeCoro to be flexible and focus on end user requirements. It is essential to fisherpeople, casual or professional, that equipment is reliable, supply is direct, efficient, and comes with good service.

DeCoro as a company is required to be up to speed with the constant changes in the fishing industry, by monitoring changing requirements and evaluating and sourcing the best new products at the best possible prices. An extensive showroom allows for a large range of product on display and serves as a retail store conveniently located for all clients.

Tauranga is the base for some major tuna producers and DeCoro specialists in long line fishing requirements both for tuna boats and those chasing other species, being recreational fishermen all staff are passionate about fishing, the team at DeCoro ensures that the business supports all local fisherpersons from the sports fisher to the kids on the wharfs. In fact the recreational tackle side of our business would be the fastest growing division of Decoro.
                                                                                                                                            
People have fished throughout the last millennium and will doubtlessly do so throughout the next. DeCoro Fishing Supplies has every intention of continuing to be at the cutting edge of the industry, continuing to supply the right product at the right time for all fisherpeople.
