Big shout out to Gardner. Had bought a v2 deluxe receiver from Johnson Ross, who then didn't receive it in their Gardner order. They asked Gardner to send directly to me. Rang Gardner who said they were working on 7 day shipping. Explained the urgency (having ordered 2 weeks before at JR) and it was on my doorstep the next morning. Judging by the voice I think I spoke with the lad from their promo videos.

I know not a shop, but was amazing customer service. Also not a criticism of JR, as it was all out of their control.

Whilst I am at it, England Angling. Getting stuff through quickly when others struggle.

Don't tell Knickerwetter that one of them won the British carp championships - he will have them down as a noddy shop.

Avoid Ann Summers at all costs. it is owned by the same porn barons that own West Ham. The sooner they go bust and sell up the better.

Bankside in Gloucestershire isn't to shoddy, free spirit stockists and always have stock, couple of good guys that have been there and done it, yet always willing to offer advice and help

I have just purchased some end tackle, spombs, leads, pellets and particles from Blakes and received it the next day with a load of advice from one of the lads there. Mega impressed.

Hundred percent agree. Using them for years. Not sure about the stitch up comment though.


Probably because their sales spiel is so good you end up buying more than you need...

I have used Johnson Ross and Tackle Box quite a bit and I know a few of the guys in Johnson Ross from my time on Nazeing, they treat all customers well, they know their stuff, and will sell you right.

Tackle Box, I have driven down a few times to have a proper look at items I needed, and browsed round the shop, yes, you can easily end up with more than you went in for. Again they know what they are doing. A retail store with staff who can talk the talk.

I have been in a few Angling Direct stores and it feels like they are just 'stick it through the till and next', almost like a fishing tackle Primark, but at premium prices
