Tackle Shop

Definitely not your ‘run of the mill’ fly shop!  You can try before you buy at our tackle testing facility next to the river – in fact, we encourage you to do so.   

We’ve used our vast knowledge and experience to carefully select our favourite and most utilised tackle and clothing that we wouldn't be without on the river.  You won't find 20 options of the same thing, just a curated selection of products that we know and trust from the very best suppliers.  

We can advise on the most suitable tackle and gear to make your time on the water not only more productive but as enjoyable as possible. 

Pop in and see us – the coffee is always good and always on! And if you are not in the vicinity then do browse our online shop, we’d be delighted to help with any questions.
