Vintage Fishing Tackle & Collectable Angling Items

Welcome to the
Classic Vintage Fishing Tackle Website

Specialising in vintage Hardy and Abu Reels as well as unused Abu Reel Parts

Hello, I am Les Shaw. I have been fishing since I was knee high to a Grasshopper and have been collecting vintage & classic fishing tackle for 20 years or so. I am a keen Carp angler and enjoy fishing with my son Jamie whenever we get the chance. After years of collecting I have decided with the help and encouragement of a few friends to start my own website. Some of you will already know me through my EBay Id which is skylark31. I am an honest trader and always treat customers the way that I would like to be treated. I never take anyone's business for granted!

What Buyers from Classic Vintage Fishing Tackle Say

Received the parts shortly after speaking on the phone. Great that you take the time to source parts for what I consider the best fixed spool reel made, Abu Suveran, and because of that my reels will probably outlast me!!!! Hope to see you at the Redditch show later this year.

Reel received today and I'm very impressed. Condition was never a big issue for me as I wanted a reel to fish with but it has far exceeded my expectations. I'd recommend your site to anyone and will be watching for other items.

Thanks Les for your great items.
When I visited your web site and seen you items I almost fell out of my chair.
You have the best items out there.
