We are a family run business established in 1978. We like to specialise in brand name products such as MOSELLA, MIDDY, MAVER, SHIMANO, just to name a few. We pride ourselves in offering quality goods and an excellent service; just ask anyone that has used us.
This website is dedicated to the coarse and match side of fishing in paticular, whilst our sister site
www.carpfishinggear2u.co.uk is all about carp and specialist fishing, this is where you can purchase these products.
We are always at hand to offer friendly advise about tackle, rigs, hook tying and the basics of fishing in general.
We stock a vast amount of baits and groundbaits in an ever growing market.We
offer local knowledge about rivers, canals and commercial venues, like
what rules , what baits are catching at the moment and cost , so you can
be prepared before you venture out.
You can also purchase from here the Notts Anglers Association books
or renew your old one, we also carry the NAA members friends tickets

We have built up over the years a reputation for top quality fresh bait. Previous owner Bill Welch who had the shop for 25 years spent long days and nights picking skins from casters and preparing the maggots for sale, this reputation got around and anglers would travel miles for top bait, Bill the new owner's father (76 now) still plays a role in bait preparation and is still considered as one of the best in the business even now. We stock Red, White, Bronze and Mixed colours and also Disco maggots, we stock Pinkies and squatts depending on the season, Bloodworm and joker is available to order.Worms are sold in handy pots or can be ordered in 1kg size. We have a vast range of deadbaits available all year round but carry more stock in the winter months.
We also repair pole breakages , most "accidents" can be fixed so don't despair, bring it in and we will give you a quote.
We are now breaking into the match scene more vigorously than before , we have sponsored anglers fishing the open matches for us and now have a match team operating under our banner from the shop, and hopefully we can progress to bigger things in the future.
We also offer a mail order service that is based on the same principles as we have in the shop, we are adding new products every week to the website so bear with us, if you cannot find what you want please call us we may be able to help over the phone.
Just pop in, or call us, if its only for advice our friendly staff will be pleased to help.
