About Us

We are a South Wales based company and have been in business for over forty years, with an online store for the past fifteen years. We have three shops, two in Cardiff and one in Newport.

The Cardiff shops are next door but one to each other. At 105 Whitchurch Road we have a shop totally dedicated to fly fishing. Should you visit us you will find a comprehensive stock of fly rods, reels, lines, clothing and an enormous range of flies (everything from pike, tarpon, bonefish and bass flies to a huge array of trout and salmon flies).

At 109 Whitchurch Road we have a shop dedicated to coarse, carp, spinning and sea fishing. Here you will find everything you could possibly need to go spinning or bait fishing, from rods, reels and terminal tackle, to lures, fresh baits and clothing.

Our Newport shop is on two floors. Upstairs is entirely fly fishing, whilst downstairs is dedicated to spinning and bait fishing. If you can visit us, we look forward to seeing you.

If you have any fishing questions or require any advice on tackle or places to fish, please ring us, as we will be pleased to help. All our members of staff are keen and knowledgeable fishermen, and between us we have a vast knowledge of fishing around the world.

Myself, Colin, Richard, Martyn, and Andrew are based at the Cardiff shops (02920 619828/692968); Clive and Matthew are based at our Newport shop (01633 855086). Should you wish to place an order by telephone, please speak to any member of our Cardiff team. You will not have to speak to a “tele-sales assistant” whose only knowledge of fishing tackle is the computer code!

Tight Lines,

Garry
 

The  Team

 
Fly & Game.jpg Garry Evans
Garry has been keen on fishing since the age of 8 and has fished all over the world. He started his working life in accountancy, but swapped the desk and opened the shop forty years ago. After an early career coarse match fishing, he now fishes for rainbows and grayling in the winter, and salmon, sea trout and brown trout in the summer. He still likes to keep his hand in coarse fishing, and has landed over fifty pike and a 36lb carp this season.

Colin has worked with Garry for the past forty years. He enjoys all types of fishing, including, fly, sea and coarse, and won a World Championship Gold Medal in Bulgaria in 1989. He was one of the original pioneers of the Cuban saltwater revolution and is a very experienced and helpful angler. He fishes the river Ebro in Spain for catfish at least once a year.
   
Carp & Specimen.jpg Richard Cox
Richard started river fishing on the Taff at a very early age, and is a well-known specialist barbel angler. He also enjoys carp fishing, both at home and abroad, and currently organises the annual Welsh Carp Championship.

Martyn is the manager of our specialist game fishing shop and is a very experienced all-round angler. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the sport, from stillwater fly fishing for trout to lure fishing for tarpon in the Caribbean. Martyn is also an expert fly tyer, and has a wealth of knowledge about the latest fishing tackle.
   
Andy with Barbel 5.jpg Andrew Hawkesley
Andrew enjoys all types of fishing. He fly fishes for trout during the coarse fishing close season, but come June 16th he mainly targets barbel. Andrew also does a great deal of sea fishing from the boat and shore.
   
  Clive Vedmore
Clive is one of the most experienced sea fishing match anglers in South Wales, and was captain of the Gold medal winning Welsh team that won the World Beach Fishing Championship. Clive also won the Sea Master Final (in fact, he was the first man to win it twice!)
