We’ve been asked to let members know that the ‘Blooming Tails’ pet shop in Market Drayton has started selling some fishing tackle and bait, including maggots. They say they get fresh bait delivered every Tuesday and if any of our members need other bait – such as worms/casters – then they can add them onto their weekly order for you.

This will undoubtedly be a useful local service, so please spread the word and, more importantly, try and support it.

Their shop is open Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday/Saturday 9:00-5:00 and Thursday 9:00-4:00.

P.S. For those that know him, I can confirm that Roy Cooper still sells some tackle/bait from his home, but he welcomes this new facility as he now spends a lot of his [retirement] time ‘on the bank’, i.e. fishing! Lucky man.
