Alternative Tackle Fly Rods

The Anarchic Fly Fishing Collective

Alternative Tackle

Our reason for being

The Alternative Tackle Company offers a unique range of carefully selected, innovative, high quality, fly fishing tackle and accessories. 

Starting in 2007 as a small niche website selling a limited range of (mainly) custom made tackle, Alternative Tackle has grown and evolved into a mutually supportive community of like minded individuals and crafts people. 

Our collective is an inclusive one and we are always keen to recruit new members. If you are (or know of) someone who would like to join us, know of a product you think should be added to the website, or if you’d just like to find out more about us, or the artisan makers we work with, please get in touch.

We keep a unique stock of fly fishing tackle and accessories, which is available for immediate purchase. We also offer bespoke, custom order fly rods and reels including limited edition, rare, unique & specialist items. Please get in touch and we’ll happily talk you through our stock and the custom order process.

More detail about how this all works can be found on the About page.
