VINTAGE FISHING TACKLE

Image: A collection of high quality vintage fishing tackle.

Do you remember that vintage fishing rod you had when you were young but now sadly sits up in the loft or shed in disrepair? Do you remember your father or grandfather using a particular reel which was cherished but sadly now looks the worse for wear? Then take some time out to browse my site. You may have an old rod in the garage that you promised to restore 40 years ago or an old reel thats seen better days.
Restoring vintage rods and reels has been a passion of mine for a number of years now. All the rods are sympathetically restored to the nearest exact specifications of the original rod. Specifications like rod length, style of ferrule, whipping colour, grade and placement, style of rings and positions, reel and butt fittings, logo decals or hand written logos are matched as close as possible to the original if missing or unsalvagable.


Vintage Reels of all shapes, ages and styles are also able to be repaired and restored to their original specifcations.


I hope you find the site interesting and if I can be of service give me a call or send me an e.mail for a chat.


My services are offered worldwide no job too big, small or in between! 


As time goes by I will be expanding the site by adding more information, restores, befores and afters, photos, items etc.


Enjoy the site and re-visit regularly as I am adding items and information on a weekly basis

I am always on the look out for vintage tackle no matter what condition, so if you have some for sale or to clear, ie rods, reels and accessories drop me a line.
