WELCOME TO IRELAND'S ANTIQUE FISHING TACKLE
We buy many aspects of antique fishing tackle providing many of the items
are in good condition and are made by some of the good pedigree suppliers
of yester-year,such as Hardy,ABU,Allcocks,P.D.Malloch,Farlows, J.W.Youngs etc..
We also collect Quality Hardy rods,Thomas and Thomas rods ,leonard rods,
Richard walker rods, B James rods,Loop rods, mk1V cane rods and many others.
Having practiced game fishing since boyhood and being based in the North West of Northern Ireland,it is no surprise to have developed a real passion for salmon and trout fishing.
Inevitably this love of fishing has evolved into an addiction for collecting vintage fishing tackle. This all-consuming hobby of many years has led to me being involved in the valuation of period tackle such as products from Hardys,Allcocks,Youngs,Malloch,carved fish and taxidermy etc ,on a daily basis,where I continuously search for these and other rare items.
Consequently the volume of merchandise that I have aquired in Ireland has led to the creation of this website during 2008.I wish to assure potential purchasers that I will warrant my product's description and give an honest, detailed appraisal of the physical condition thereof drawing upon my considerable experience. Obviously as with all antiques, pricing reflects condition.
So feel reassured and relaxed in your choosing. I will endeavour to satisfy any queries that you may have, please feel free to use my contact details below.
