About Us

Company History
Jackson's Fishing Tackle is a family run company that was established in the early seventies and is still run by one of the original family members. A 'bricks and mortar' company that has been selling Fishing Tackle to the local angling community and visitors since its establishment almost 50 years ago.

Our premises are located in Earby which is situated in the former West Craven area of the West Riding of Yorkshire, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, now sadly part of Lancashire

From here we supply the whole of the UK and beyond through our e-commerce website with a range of fishing tackle covering Coarse, Game - including Trout, Salmon and Sea Trout. We also stock a wide range if items for the Pike angler, including a large choice of Spinners, Plugs and Lures.

Flies and fly tying materials, hooks and tools etc.

We are completely dedicated to your total satisfaction and will do all we can to make your experience of using this site is as easy and trouble free as possible.

Personal shoppers are welcome to our premises where a wider range of goods than those available on this site can be found.

In the beginning
In the early seventies my parents and I decided to start a business, plans were drawn up and the building of an extension to the house commenced and on completion Jackson's Fishing Tackle was born.
At that time I had no intentions of personally running the business, at least not as a full time occupation, but circumstances changed and eventually, I decided that it was time to take over the running of the business in the late seventies.
The business still occupies the original premises that we started with and many customers have said that the building must have rubber walls as no matter how much new stock arrives a space is always found.

The Computer age
In the late eighties the computer age caught up with the business when we acquired our first machine, this revolutionised the running of the shop. Since then most office processes have been computerised, though we have updated the machines a few times since those early days. Now we find ourselves part of an online world where most businesses have Websites and e-mail.

Our site was developed by myself a few years ago and is continually being updated as new products come on stream. I also try to keep up to date with the design of the site, which is continually developing and hopefully improving in the process.

To keep up with this ever changing world I have taken a few IT courses at the local College. This has enabled me to become even more efficient in my day to day running of the business through a greater knowledge of software we use for the business.

The future
I will continue to be available and you will always speak to me personally on the telephone with your questions, queries or complaints, which I hope will be few. I will also continue answering all e-mails personally. Callers to the shop will always be served by me. I will try to offer advise when needed and asked for and of course continue to supply the all important personal touch. The personal approach is at the core of my business commitment and my promise is to continue offering this personal service.
