About Us

Basildon Angling Centre has been the 'local tackle shop' since it started trading in 1985, and is now our family business.

We stock tackle from a wide range of manufacturers including Daiwa, Drennan, ESP, Fox, Korda, Nash, Preston, Shimano and many more. We'll sometimes accept some of your existing items of tackle in part exchange for new items (just ask). Because of this we occasionally have used items for sale.

For those items which we might not have in stock (the shop is only so big!), we can get them for you.

We don't do mail order - we prefer to see our customers face-to-face.

So, whether you're a Carp angler, a Predator angler, a Catfish angler, a Match angler, a Novice angler, or just a plain ordinary Angler, we'll make you welcome.

Unfortunately we don't stock Sea fishing tackle or ragworm/lugworm.
