Christmas Gifts for the North Devon Angler

These are difficult times on the High Street with many shops struggling as many shop online to secure the best deals. This is understandable but we must not forget the local tackle shop for they provide us with an invaluable service. Fresh bait, tubs of maggots, the chance to pick up and look at the product and that social benefit of meeting fellow anglers. Tackle shops have always been at the hub of the angling world a place to learn and become motivated by fellow anglers. If your thinking of what to buy the angler for Christmas   why not head to your local tackle shop of which we have a great choice in North Devon.

Danny Watson runs High Street Tackle in Ilfracombe with his partner Pauline and has a passion for lure fishing that is reflected in the huge range of lures on offer in the shop. They also stock qaulity Ammo frozen bait along with sea angling tackle and essential items for the coarse angler.

Ryan Willshire from Bude  has now had six different 20lb plus carp from Upper Tamar in two weeks! This time Ryan braved the awful weather and fished the Lookout Tower swim which produced three fish. A cracking common of 23.04, a fish known as ‘Steve’s Mirror’ which was 21.04 and another mirror of 19.00. The two mirrors fell to Mainline IB pop ups and the Common to pop up corn and all over a bed of Mainline Hybrid boilies.
