About Us

Now trading as Going Fishing Tackle


The Matchmen Angling Centre  

established 1978

The Matchmen first opened its doors over 40 years ago. It was a family run business back then and continues to be today. We have met lots of fantastic customers over the years who also have become like part of the family today.

We have seen lots of transformations within fishing, the 150 gallons of maggots a week we used to sell in the 70s and 80s to the almost demise of it today to its humble 5 gals a week. Fishing has changed.

In 2002 we took the shop to the next level with the introduction of online shopping, now selling on our own website and other platforms.

Our constant awareness of the market has kept us on our toes over time and we always try to put the customers needs first.

 Going Fishing Tackle is run by experienced Anglers so if you need any advice on tackle and bait please do not hesitate to ask.

In 2018 our 40th year of trading we took the massive step to change from our traditional Match Fishing roots and move with the times. We are now offering quality Specimen and Carp fishing gear and baits .We stock a variety of ground baits , boilies, pellets and particles in an ever growing market.
Nottinghamshire Anglers and Nottingham Federation books are available here.
