Warranty Information

Big Catch has a very good business relationship with all the major suppliers of fishing tackle in South Africa and will act on your behalf to get goods that are defective repaired or replaced.
Reels come with a 1-year warranty from the manufacturer which means that if the reel is faulty they will have it repaired by their authorised repairer; there are a number of these around the country.

Fishing Rods have a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty but due to the nature of the product are only covered if the rod breaks whilst fishing ie whilst being used for the purpose for which it was designed. Rods are not covered if they are dropped, stood on, closed in a door of a car etc. Rod Eyes and Tips do break from time to time but these can be replaced.
