Vintage Carp Fishing Tackle offers a comprehensive range of classic carp tackle and antique fishing books from yesteryear, from the first split cane carp rods of the 1950-60s through to the ‘old school’ years of the 1970-90s. So, if it’s something special from those pioneering years, or you simply want a trip down memory lane and to fish with the old gear you used to use ‘back in the day’, we hope you’ll be able to find it here on our site.

We offer the finest, Richard Walker inspired, split cane carp fishing rods from makers such as B James & Son and Oliver’s of Knebworth, along with iconic glass and carbon carp rods, including examples made by the leaders of the day, such as Bruce & Walker, Hardy and North Western. And, of course, those classic rods need to be paired up with Mitchell or ABU reels or a lovely centrepin…all of which you can find right here. We can even supply the old canvas and leather rod holdalls, wax jackets, Trilby hats and Kelly kettles, just to make your collection even more enviable.
