Meet the team

A tackle shop is nothing without a good team behind it. Whether it be the staff in the shop, the bait suppliers, rod builders, pro team or simply the regular customer base, each and every person involved plays an integral part in our success.

We have a wealth of knowledge at our disposal, boasting several members of the English national set up on hand to offer advice and share their knowledge to anyone who asks.

Tom Bagnall

Chief, Skipper, Boss, Senior Tea Drinker, or whatever you want to call him really. He is a current member of the England Squad and has three silver medals to his name, he loves competing in beach matches, winning numerous medals and trophies both at home and abroad.

Toby Oldfield

Toby started with us as a work experience lad at the age of 14, since then he has become a full time senior member of staff and represented England at Junior, Youth and Senior levels no fewer than 8 times, winning an impressive 7 medals in the process.


Abby Bagnall

Do you want to talk to the man in charge or the woman who knows what’s going on… A familiar phrase and very apt for us. Abby is Tom’s wife and co-owner of the business. Although her knowledge of fishing may not be up there with the rest, her organisational skills ensure the shop runs like clockwork on a daily basis.
