While traveling to SE Oklahoma from Dallas, I found what is probably the best stocked, pure fishing store in the Midwest/Southwest - Brannan's Bass Shop. I had the opportunity to meet Kathy Brannan and she clearly knows everything about all things bass fishing. She informed me that most of her customers travel to Lake Fork in Texas and she makes sure that the shop has everything the fisherman needs to land a lunker while there.
I canvassed the store both coming and going from my trip to Lake Broken Bow and Mountain Fork River, and found it to be VERY WELL STOCKED ACROSS THE BOARD, including hard-to-find specialty bass items.
Brannan's Bass Shop is located just north of Paris, TX, just south of Hugo, OK in Powderly, TX on Hwy 271 (next to Lake Pat Mayse). I highly recommend that you stop in if you are anywhere close - it is well worth the stop!!
Avid fishermen thank you Kathy and your staff for such a comprehensive store!
