Tibshelf Angling Centre

Introduced by Andrew Kennedy



Addendum:
I'm sorry to say that as of early 2012, Tibshelf Angling Centre is no more. This highlights even more the need to Support Your Local Tackle Shop by buying as many of your essentials there as possible, as often as you can. The large, mail order companies certainly have their place but when you need that essential item of terminal tackle that you forgot you'd run out of, you need to have a local shop to pop down to. If your local tackle shops have closed due to a shortage of trade, then you're in a bind. At least if you have supported your local shops, you have contributed to keeping them open.


My local tackle shop, where I spend the majority of my tackle & bait budget is Phil's Bait and Tackle, whose contact details are as follows:

Phil's Bait & Tackle

Unit 2, Market Place, Sutton-In-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
NG17 1AQ
Tel: 01623 554654
Website: www.philsbaitandtackle.co.uk

Phil's Bait & Tackle is a well stocked little shop with a good range of every day items of tackle and bait, with plenty of rods and poles on display too.&nsp; Since it opened Phil's has always been very well priced.  Tackle-wise, they have the full complement of Korum, Preston Innovations, Greys Prowla, Middy and Maver terminal tackle covering carp, pike and match type fishing, along with Kamasan hooks and a slection of other brands, including Chub luggage and nets.  Baits stocked include Dynamite Baits, Sensas, Sonubaits, Marukyu, Ringers and Van Den Eynde, with Baitbox deadbaits and maggots, casters and worms also stocked.  Besides the aforementioned brands, they stock rods & reels by Shimano and Daiwa too.

Anglers around the Derbyshire village of Tibshelf have finally been given the local tackle shop they have longed for.

Tibshelf Angling Centre opened its doors to the public at the beginning of April, and it's already proving to be just what locals have been waiting for.  With several popular day ticket fisheries in the area, hundreds of anglers must pass the prominent main road location of this shop each week (it's even on my way to work!).

Step inside and you won't be disappointed.  The bait selection is vast, and besides the every day maggots and casters, you'll find comprehensive groundbait, pellet and boilie ranges from the likes of CC Moore, Quest Baits, Dynamite Baits, Sensas and Mainline.   Tackle to cover all aspects of coarse angling is stocked - from match rods, to pike tackle, to bivvies and bite alarms.  Expect to find items from the Fox, Drennan, ESP, JRC, Shakespeare and Mustad stables.

I was pleasantly surprised to find the owner, Mark Marriot, places a strong emphasis on helping youngsters and novices; offering both guidance and practical assistance to anyone who asked.  I have visited too many tackle shops where the shop assistants show no enthusiasm towards helping their customers, so it was refreshing to note the open approach taken by Tibshelf Angling Centre staff.

So if you're looking for quality brands at competitive prices, you've forgotten your day's bait, or if you're just starting out and need a few helpful pointers, call in and speak to Mark or one of his staff at Tibshelf Angling Centre.

Tibshelf Angling Centre is open from 8.00 until 17.30, Monday to Saturday and 8.00 until mid-day on Sundays.

UPDATE - January 2009
Tibshelf Angling Centre now stocks a comprehensive range of specialist CC Moore and Quest Baits boilies and baits.
