I am Marc, a working father of 3 who's lifelong passion has been angling. This passion began in 1990 when I was invited along with my cousins to go fishing for eels in my local canal. Shortly after, I bought my very first rod from a small fishing tackle shop called Powells in Redditch. I was soon catching roach and bream on the local lake. Over the years, I like many others have dreamt of that big fish...the one that got away. Now, for me at least, it's more about WHERE I am fishing rather than what I'm hoping to catch. Fly fishing is the ultimate type of angling for someone who enjoys the outdoors. I feel hugely privileged to have been able to spend the days I have in the places I have. Trout truly do live in beautiful places.
It's now my aim to promote what we have on our doorstep. The UK is brimming with sunny, green corners of countryside for the ultimate relaxing day away from the rat race. All you need is a rod, reel and line (not forgetting your licence and permit of course).
We can help with it all. From the kit you need to information about places to go and licences etc. Whether you're an experienced angler or new starter, we can offer you the supplies and knowledge you need to make the most of the UK's river and lake fishing.
We are also proud to make junior angling once of our main focusses. We aim to stock an ever growing range of waders, rods, reels and lines aimed at those little lads and ladies who wish to accompany mum or dad on the river. Our sport needs need blood. We need todays children to experience the outdoors, not the TV screen.
