Our Story

Welcome to Ireland's Antique Fishing Tackle's online store, located in the North West of Northern Ireland. We are a family-run business including myself, Andy Doherty and my daughter Sarah. I have practiced game fishing since boyhood and being based here, it is no surprise to have developed a real passion for salmon and trout fishing.

Inevitably this love of fishing has evolved into an interest 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 Allcock's, Hardy's, Young's, 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 acquired 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. Either me or my daughter will endeavor to satisfy any queries that you may have, please feel free to contact us.
