A seatbox is one of the most important pieces of tackle to get right.
You sit on it for anything up to 9 hours on a normal day session, it contains all of your prized terminal tackle and securely protects those rigs you spend hours on getting to perfection.
This is why I needed and upgrade from my old shakespeare box that I’ve had since starting pole fishing. Yes it’s served me well and they are probably the best box to buy a young budding angler. They can fit loads inside, and are lightweight only being made from plastic. But that’s what they are, cheap, light and basically for beginners. Fair enough right?
OK, I decided my current netting gear needed upgrading so I needed a new Landing Net and landing net Handle. I searched on all the various online shops looking for the best deals I could, being the tight wad I am; Ted Carter, Angling Direct, Chapman’s Angling & Fosters of Birmingham all good sites don’t get me wrong, but I then came across this gem of a site; BobCo tackle!
An hour or so later having been browsing through all of their product categories, I got to what I came here for. My products of choice were the very well priced Preston Quick Dry Landing Net and Daiwa Sweepfire Handle. These two together should stand me in good stead for the forceable future. I also had to chuck a few baits in my basket to try, of which I will probably review in a post soon.
I placed my order with BobCo Tackle at about 2 o’clock on Thursday AND the items arrived at 9.40 am the next day! How good is that? To add to that, postage was only £1.99! I order loads online, and £1.99 for next day delivery is quality, and nearly unheard of!
A couple of my items weren’t in stock so I emailed asking when they would be delivered, I got a response within half an hour! SPOT ON! We sorted the 2 items and with helpful advise from one of the guys and they got them dispatched the very same day, arriving today! All the items were exactly how described and pictured on the website, as-well as being packaged extremely well. What great service!
I would highly recommend the guys at BobCo tackle to anyone, especially anglers in Yorkshire with them being based in Leeds. They’re ACE and I will be using them from now on for all my online tackle needs!

One of my first purchases was a Carp Unhooking Mat. These are a vital piece of kit for the safety and well-being of the fish, instead of placing them on grass etc. Not only that, but most commercials now days expect all anglers to have unhooking mats.
I bought my Carp Unhooking Mat off eBay. Its well padded and easy big enough for any fish you will catch and it only cost me a tenner, No Excuses!
