About The Tackle Box

The Tackle Box has now been in business for over 30 years. We supply the best carp fishing tackle and equipment that can be found and we complement that with other specialist tackle for species such as barbel, bream and tench and predator tackle for catfish and pike.

We have 4000 sq ft of retail space, which is packed to the rafters (literally) with stock, so over the years it has become known as the fishing tackle industry’s ‘Aladdin’s cave’. We also run a thriving mail order business and are happy to send orders to anywhere in the world (following the necessary payment security checks etc).

We do our very best to maintain an extremely high level of customer service. Whether you are just the other side of the counter, or dealing with us online or by phone, you can be assured of the same detailed level of attention to your requirements.

Why Choose Us?

Based on customer comments and our knowledge of the business we have put together a few reasons why customers buy from us:

Happy Customers

Have a look at some of our reviews below. The majority of our customers come back and buy again.

The Best Products

We do the research so you don’t have to. We are actively involved in the development of many major items. We only stock products we would be happy to use ourselves.

Plenty of Stock

If it’s in stock with the supplier we’ll usually have it. If we haven’t we’ll get it for you as quickly as possible. We can also usually obtain items we don’t normally stock. Whatever you want we’ll try and get it for you.

Competitive Prices

We won’t discount just to secure an order from you, which we then can’t fulfill. You don’t pay over the odds, but fair prices mean we can maintain stock levels, our award winning after sales back up and excellent knowledgeable staff.

Sound Advice

Nearly all our shop staff are experienced anglers, so you are in the best possible place to get exactly the right tackle and advice.

No Hard Sell

We are not interested in selling you anything you are not completely happy with. We are very pleased to just answer your questions.

Conscientious Mail Order

Careful selection of goods, attention to detail, secure packaging and fast despatch make our worldwide mail order service hard to beat.

Speedy Problem Solving

In both the shop and the mail order department, any problems will be dealt with courteously, as fast as possible. We will not string you along or avoid sorting anything out.

Predominantly carp tackle, but they do have a few bits of match gear. However they do stock most baits for match fishing, and I have to say, the staff are very friendly and extremely helpful
