Mike & Tracy welcome you to Challis Tackle
Our family run shop has been trading in Andover since 1984 catering for coarse, sea, game, match and the specialist angler. In-store we have a large selection of poles, rods, reels, luggage and terminal tackle from most manufacturers. We are a Garbolino. We stock fresh maggots, worms, pinkies, squat and casters, also a large selection of shelf life and frozen carp, pike and sea baits. Take a look at our online shop for a selection of our huge range of stock. Challenge Challis - if we don't stock it, we'll source it, and always at a competitive price!

Reels are taken in for repair or servicing and are back within 10 days. We also offer a pole elastication service for a small charge per top set using standard or hollow elastics.
