Welcome to our store!

Welcome to the home of quality vintage fishing tackle: tackle from the golden age of pleasure angling that still have much joy to give today! If sitting back under a willow, cane rod in hand and watching a beautiful handmade float sounds like the perfect afternoon to you then you are in the right place.

(If you were looking for a “guaranteed” carp bagging tactic for use on an overstocked stew-pond then you aren’t!)

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any queries or if you would like more pictures of a particular product etc. See our “Terms and Conditions” page for information regarding returns and shipping cost etc.

A word on our philosophy: we aim at The VFC to give reasonable prices – if you think a price is unreasonable then get in touch – you never know: you might convince us! In general though I think you will find our items priced considerably below other tackle dealers. To keep prices down we do all that we can – re-use packing materials, find the cheapest postage/ courier and keep overhauls of items to a minimum. We always check items for working condition, and repair any minor faults we find. items with major faults simply won’t be offered for sale (generally they are met with a shrug of the shoulders and tossed into the parts box!). We NEVER repaint items or touch up paint work on reels, and don’t cover rods in thick layers of varnish to disguise any imperfections: we believe that the battle scars that tackle has acquired become a part of it. That being said we do often offer items in unused condition, and of course these can attract premium prices as they appeal to collectors and will have cost us more to acquire.

I like this one! At 5″ long and only around 1″ wide at its widest point this is a large spoon for distance but won’t need loads of cranking to get her back in. Perfect for pike or bass I think! In unused condition. As always we will try and combine postage on items wherever […]
