About Us


The Tackle Company was established in 2007 and is located in the Avonside Enterprise Park in Melksham, Wiltshire. This location was chosen as it is easily accessible for customers with parking not far from centre of Melksham town.

Stuart Atkins decided to open a tackle shop specialising in carp and coarse fishing, as he has always had a love for angling since a young age, and it has always been a huge passion of his.

The shop has made massive growth in the 16 years that it has been open with a very loyal customer base, which means the shop see's the same friendly faces week in and week out.

If you follow us on social media we often post amusing (sometimes questionable) videos and we have various competitions throughout the year.

We are always on hand to help with any questions that need answering and are always able to help anybody, from beginners to experienced anglers.

We pride ourselves on good customer service and the fact there is always a very relaxed atmosphere in the shop. There is a never a dull moment as Stu and team are always up for a laugh; you can see that for yourself if you check out The Tackle Company's Facebook videos!
