My name is Andrew Doherty, and have practised game fishing since boyhood and being based in the North West of Northern Ireland, it is no surprise to have developed a real passion for salmon and trout fishing. Inevitably this love of fishing has evolved into an addiction for collecting vintage fishing tackle. This all-consuming hobby of many years has led to me being involved in the valuation of period tackle such as products from Allcocks, Hardys, Youngs, Malloch, carved fish and taxidermy etc ,on a daily basis,where I continuously search for these and other rare
items, Consequently the volume of merchandise that I have acquired in Ireland has led to the creation of this website during 2008. I wish to assure potential purchasers that I will warrant my product's description and give an honest, detailed appraisal of the physical condition thereof drawing upon my considerable experience. Obviously as with all antiques, pricing reflects condition.
So feel reassured and relaxed in your choosing. I will endeavour to satisfy any queries that you may have, please feel free to contact us.
My friend Aaron Day has guided me through the creation of my web site and through his constant support we have managed to get it up and running in Autumn 2008.
I would like to convey my thanks to Aaron and recommend him to anyone wishing an enthusiastic endorsement in the love of vintage fishing tackle collecting.
