In the past many members will have purchased maggots and other baits from our former Vice Chairman/Match Secretary, Roy Cooper (RIP).

Angling shops are fairly thin on the ground these days, but as an alternative there is a fairly local venue from which fishing baits (only) can be obtained, namely Pets 2000 in Whitchurch.

They sell a range of maggots (but not casters), worms, pellets in different sizes, hemp seed and groundbait.

They are located at 1 Watergate, Whitchurch. SY13 1DP. Nearest parking by Tesco.

Open Mon – Sat, 0900 – 1700. Tel 01948 665403.

Note. If you are aware of other local sources of bait/tackle please get in touch and we can share info with our members.
