Game Tackle (Second Hand & Unused)

Woody’s have sold fly fishing tackle suitable for both salmon and trout fishing for nearly fifty years. During that time John has built up a significant collection of vintage and antique tackle and has written and produced the book Hardy Brothers The Masters, the Men and Their Reels. Chris, John’s son is an avid salmon and trout fisher, successfully pursuing fish in both the U.K. and Canada.

John’s position as one of the U.K.’s foremost collector of antique and vintage tackle allows him the opportunity to access far more second hand game tackle than the average tackle shop. Many items have never been used and all that we offer is either in good or excellent condition. Many of our game fishing customers prefer to fish with the more traditional designs of tackle, not necessarily wanting to fish with a reel that resembles something that has fallen off Darth Vader’s helmet! We invite you therefore to study some of the items that we have in stock. If you are wanting something specific then please telephone or email on before visiting, to check current availability.
