Our family run fishing tackle shop has been trading in Andover since 1984 catering for coarse, sea, game, match and the specialist angler. In-store we have a large selection of poles, rods, reels, luggage and terminal tackle from most manufacturers. We are a Garbolino star dealer. We stock fresh maggots, worms, pinkies, squat and casters, also a large selection of shelf life and frozen carp, pike and sea baits. Take a look at our online shop for a selection of stock held at our fishing tackle shop. Challenge Challis – if we don’t stock it, we’ll source it, and always at a competitive price!

We offer a pole and rod repair service and keep some spares, such as rod rings, in stock. The rod and pole repair service works on a 2 to 3 week turn-around. We also offer a pole elastication service for a small charge per top set using standard or hollow elastics.
