Start your own fishing tackle and bait business

Escape the 9-5 and achieve financial independence with your own Tackle Trailer fishing tackle and bait business.

Fishing remains a hugely popular sport and hobby, with many participants extremely passionate about it, and seeking high quality equipment to help them raise their game.

The rise of online tackle retailers has seen many local fishing shops disappear, but the reality is that many people serious about angling prefer the local service experience, and as a Tackle Trailer franchise owner, you will have the advantage of being able to offer them the same competitive price points as the online giants, and build up a loyal, appreciative customer-base.

A lot of those who enjoy fishing may not have even considered turning their hobby into a career, but Tackle Trailer offers just that opportunity for entrepreneurial anglers, with its franchise opportunity that promises an end to the daily 9-5 grind.

The good news is that you needn’t risk your home, your entire life savings – or even your standard of living – to start your own low-risk, low-overhead fishing tackle and bait business, and you won’t even need to give up the day job, until you are ready.


The Tackle trailer opportunity will suit all sorts of people’s circumstances, whether you have recently been made redundant and are looking for a new income stream, are seeking more flexible hours, are semi-retired, starting a family or are simply looking for a fresh start running your own business.

A Tackle Trailer franchise is tuned to help you overcome the three main ‘barriers to entry’ into the fishing tackle trade – specifically:

  • The prohibitive (estimated £220,000+) start-up investment
  • Large premises costs, rents and rates - and, most critically
  • Lack of stock: the inability to purchase brand name tackle to resell
