I've just received a flyer through the post for the Vintage Fishing Tackle Fair housed at Romsey Community School in Romsey, Hampshire. The date this year is Sunday 10th October, from 9am to 3pm. I've been many times before and always enjoy working through the various stands and meeting exhibitioners - there's some true experts at these events. Buying, selling, swapping and valuations are invited.
This vintage tackle fair features everything from split cane rods and centre pin reels from the classic manufacturers; there's vintage plugs and artificial baits as well as many curious accessories and knick knacks to rummage through. There is always a library's worth of collectible angling books and I've had some great finds over the years. And if fish taxidermy is your thing then there are normally a few professionally cased fish for sale.
Entry to the tackle fair on the day is just £2 with free onsite parking and refreshments are available.
Address : Romsey Community School, Romsey, Hampshire. SO51 8ZB
