We stock an impressive range of fly fishing tackle here at Angling Direct for trout, salmon, and saltwater fishing. As the country’s leading stockist of Daiwa tackle, Angling Direct can offer unique deals across the range. Daiwa’s fly fishing range has been developed with the likes of Hywel Morgan, who has worked closely with the team on their collection of carded flies. We also stock all the other major fly fishing tackle suppliers, including House of Hardy, Greys, Wychwood, Sonik, Snowbee, and Masterline among many others. This vast range of suppliers means we can stock everything you need for UK fly fishing – from fly rods, reels, lines, and the flies themselves, to storage boxes, fly vests, and waders.
Flies are obviously a crucial part of fly fishing and Angling Direct stock a comprehensive range of flies to suit any target, from salmon to trout, from stillwater to saltwater. We have collections from both Daiwa and Fulling Mill, with options for either purchasing multi-packs of individual flies, depending on your needs. To accommodate these, we stock a huge range of fly storage boxes, from Greys, Wychwood, and Snowbee among others to protect your fly fishing accessories.

We also stock a selection of sunglasses from Wychwood, Eyelevel, and Fortis Eyewear. We stock standard sunglasses as well as specialised polarised sunglasses expressly designed for seeing deeper through the water to the fish hidden in the glare below the surface. These glasses come in fashionable styles as well as traditional sporting wraparounds. We also have a selection of tools, including specific debarbing pliers for fly fishing and forceps for those fish whose mouths’ you don’t want to get your fingers too close to!
