Welcome to the Fly Shack

Peter Holborn

Hi! I'm Peter Holborn.

Welcome to my fishing tackle shop on the web. I can give you plenty of good reasons for getting your fly fishing tackle from me but the main reason most of my customers come to me is plain old-fashioned personalised SERVICE and knowledge of our wonderful sport.

So, if you need to buy tackle, try us FIRST for Quality, Competitive Prices and Exceptional Deals from the best brands in the market.

With over 30 years experience in fly fishing and having represented Wales in Competitions on Lakes and Rivers in several Countries, and fishing the prime rivers of Wales for Sea Trout and Salmon for many years. I have used my experience to personally select and product test most of what we sell so our knowledge and advice is well informed and experienced.

Price Match

We at Fly Shack believe our prices are fair and competitive commensurate with our service and free advice when required. We are always happy to speak to our customers who need detailed specific advice. We can’t always beat the big name tackle shops on price but we are confident that the big name tackle shops can’t beat us on Quality of Customer Service. However, if you find the same current range product in any bona fide Tackle Shop at a lower price, in stock and which includes postage we will, if at all possible endeavour to match or beat the price. You must supply us with the web address or name and phone number of the competitor in order to do this.

Peter's Fly Fishing Tips


Choosing a Fly Rod [revised 2013]

The first two questions I ask customers who may be looking for a fly rod are: What is your Budget? and what type of fishing are you planning on doing?
