The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
With more than 7,500 square feet, TW’s new store in Nags Head is chock full of a wide selection of fishing and hunting gear. Racks of popular clothing lines, including Aftco Bluewater Wear, Salt Life and Pelagic, and sunglasses and hats are available in the attractive and sunny store. Hunting apparel from Browning and Columbia, as well as supplies like ammunition and other hunting accessories are in stock along with an extensive range of fishing rods, reels and tackle. Fish-y gifts, jewelry and décor, and fun clothing items for infants and women, can also be purchased. There’s even a fully-stocked beverage cooler so anglers can pick up their cold drinks before heading out for a long day on the water.
Since the first TW’s opened in 1981, the family business has now expanded to three Outer Banks locations. In addition to Nags Head, TW’s can be found in Kitty Hawk and Corolla. A complete selection of fresh, frozen and live bait can be purchased at each store, and custom rods and hand-tied flies are also available.
