    In a nutshell M'Lud, Nop.
    My mate told me today that local tackle shop that closed Jan this year has reopened with a different name. Will have to check it out. It's the only tackle shop local to me that doesn't mean a car journey.

    I think this is way tackle shops are going. Industrial units are hard to get tenants for with the economic downturn . I have seen these type of angling superstores in France , huge space, ample parking and more like a supermarket to be frank.
    Shame it will take away that familiar smell and banter of a proper tackle shop .

    jimmy, not from the ashes of Bennets. Changed from "The Rod Rest" to "Tight Lines". Only a small shop which seems to be a problem these days, no numbers of stock and little variety. Big is better, but not personal.

    Isn't that the outfit tied up with the Angling Trust

    Two old type tackle shops have closed locally this year, we do of course have Fishing Republic in nearby Sunderland
