This is the UK’s first mobile fishing tackle shop and it’s coming to a fishery near you.
Owners of the Tackle Trailer are now taking bookings from fisheries queuing up for the unique service that will bring tackle and bait from some of the biggest brands in the sport to the banks of fishing’s most popular venues.
The innovative franchise has been launched by Mildenhall, Suffolk-based fishing business Tackle Trailer and the mobile extension of its successful operation has already proved a massive hit at some of the sport’s biggest fishing shows.
But now, company co-owner Steve Calder has taken the next step and has now revealed that he’s continually adding to a growing list of fisheries, who will soon be visited by the tackle trailer when it hits the road in the next few weeks.
“This trailer has been a massive success at all of the shows we’ve taken it to, but now we are in a position to provide a great service to those fisheries that don’t provide tackle and bait on site,” Steve told Angling Times.
“This will fill the gap created by the closure of so many high street stores by offering the convenience, personal service and local knowledge you’d expect from a traditional store with the kind of prices that you’d usually associate only with an online business.”
“We are already building our second trailer to ensure we keep up with demand.
Bury-St-Edmund-based fishing fanatic Mark Buckle will be taking the new mobile shop out on the road and he can’t wait to get started in his new venture.
“I’d been in my current job for five years so when this opportunity to run my own business in a sport that’s brought me so much pleasure came up I jumped at the chance,” said Mark.
“I’ve already lined up several venues for what we call ’tackle stops’ and I’d love it if those interested would get in touch as soon as possible.
*The company will be showcasing the new mobile store at the Henham Park Game & Country Fair on Saturday, March 14th and Sunday, March 15th.
