The Home of Quality Vintage Fishing Tackle  –   View Shopping Cart


Welcome to The Vintage Fishing Company

The Vintage Fishing Company is dedicated to fishing using vintage tackle and traditional methods and aims to make available quality, affordable vintage tackle to the traditional angler. Buying vintage tackle, usually via online auction sites can be a real minefield. I’ve lost count of the number of rods that turned out to be not quite as described – the worst having poor repairs and defects that made them unusable – or reels that weren’t up to snuff on arrival. The Vintage Fishing Company has established a superb reputation over its lifetime for providing accurate descriptions, realistic prices and high quality items:

By purchasing through The Vintage Fishing Company you are assured of quality vintage tackle that has been checked, inspected and if necessary serviced before being offered for sale. In addition you will benefit from a “no quibble” 14 day money-back guarantee. Those searching for a gift for angling partners, relations or friends can benefit from our “gift matching” service – that will make sure that you have the perfect gift, within your budget, for any angler: just get in touch giving us as much information as to the intended recipient’s (fishing) habits as possible via the “Contact Us” page and we’ll get onto it for you.

The VFC shop is “The Emporium”.

The VFC is also keen to support vintage angling (or “vangling” as we know it here!) in as many ways as possible – at the moment there is a general blog  “On the riverbank”. In addition we are activley seeking and supporting artisans in the vintage fishing area: to carry their products and retain their skills: we currently (2012) carry handmade floats, turned wooden float tubes/safes and beautifully crafted landing net handles made from old rod parts all made by a variety of craftsmen. We are always seeking more – so if you have a product that may be of interest to us then get in touch!

For younger anglers a free children’s story book released by chapter is available here: “River Tales – a Children’s Storybook”  whilst for grown ups (?) there are the VFC Guides to support those using vintage fishing tackle “The VFC Guides”.
