About

The Alternative Tackle Company offers a unique range of carefully selected, innovative, high quality, fly fishing tackle.
Many of these products are of little commercial interest to mainstream retailers and so are very hard to find.
This website aims to be a source for those searching for these rare and special items and also to provide a market place and resource for the dedicated and talented individuals who produce them. It’s a tough job, but I think its very important that somebody does it...
Alternative Tackle is a one man enterprise and was born in 2007. It has seen many changes and challenges since its conception, but the passion and commitment to the mission has remained constant. Please get in touch if you'd like to know more about the company, or about me.You can find out more about Alternative Tackle's carefully selected range of bamboo, fibreglass and graphite fly rods, titanium and aluminium fly reels and selection of useful (often) and beautiful (mostly) other stuff, in the SITE MENU.
Wherever practicable, items listed on this website are available for immediate delivery. However some products are only made to order & therefore not held in stock. Individual product pages provide information on whether an item is available from stock, or to order. Additionally as many sample items as I can get hold of are held for you to see and to try. If you’d like to try one of my sample items, then Please CONTACT ME for details.
To keep up to date with all that's happening on the website please, sign up to the newsletter, below. The newsletter will be published one week before the website gets updated so subscribers get advance notification of new products and product availability. (For occasional updates and bulletins you may also want to visit the alternativetackle.com Facebook, pinterest and vimeo pages.)
And finally; if you have, or know of, a product that you think should be added to the site, have any questions, or just want to chat, Please CONTACT ME.

Thank you for your interest,
Mark Leggett.
