Meet North Devon Tackle

Having gained this knowledge during his previous employment for a bait manufacturing company he is an expert at helping you decide which bait is right for your needs.
Jamie is an experienced course and sea fisherman with his biggest catch being a mirror carp weighing 47.4Lb and regularly catching carp of 20 / 30 Lb
Chris is an employee at north Devon tackle. He has been fishing ever since he was old enough to hold a fishing rod. He started out pike fishing with his grandad but couldn't help but notice the big carp swimming around, and this is what has kept him hooked on fishing from a young age.
Having worked in the same bait industry as Jamie , Chris is able to offer the same expert advice and share his experiences of catching large carp. He has also worked in several tackle shops and can assist in many different types of fishing situations.
He likes to keep him self to himself when on the bank, but is never one to hide his tactics etc so if u need any advice on local waters he is more than willing to help as much as he can. Chris's current P.B is a mirror carp called blackspot at 32lb 12oz from local fishery furzebray carp lakes.
