The Lure Lodge has been trading on eBay for well over a decade now, and in December 2013 I decided the next step (and my own personal dream) would be to open a fishing tackle shop to the general public. As always money was scarce, but an opportunity for a premises came up that I simply could not ignore.
In July 2014 my dreams became a reality and The Lure Lodge Ltd was opened, and we have gone from strength to strength. We were humbled by the suppliers who were willing to give us a chance, and proud of those which we have secured along the way. We have had the foresight to expand at a rate that means we're not getting too big for our waders, but with the knowledge you can never have too much stock!
We are pleased to be able to cater for all aspects of fishing. Whilst we don’t promise we have everything for everyone, we are most definitely working on it!. We are always on the hunt for new and innovative products focused on the fishing tackle market, and have introduced some suppliers not even heard of here!
We would like you to visit us, as we are no ordinary tackle shop. Most of our fixtures and fittings have come from recycled material, and our aim to always keep an airy ambiance wherever possible. We hope to see you soon!
This photo was taken 2 days after we received the keys. The first of the fixtures and fittings were going in.
Sorry for the delirious face!
Busy with the cleaning, and notice on the window. More fixtures going in as we acquired them. It was as hot as an oven in there!
This was the beginnings of our pallet wall….now frequently used by other shops!
And the pallet wall is complete!
In keeping with the theme, we panelled out the backs of our units to mirror the pallet wall….starting to take shape.
With the pallet wall finished, we started on the wallpaper to give it a more homely feel. We hoped to banish the starkness of it all!
Wallpaper was now finished.
With some of the slatwall up, we started to fill with the stock we already had.

It has been evident from our research that within the natural marine habitat that colours produced by Biofluorescence and colours produced by bioluminescence plays a major role to the bait and its attraction. Scientific research has proved how important visually bait needs to be presented. We have therefore produced glowing bait elastic that mirrors the vision of fish and their prey in their natural environment.
We are happy to announce that we have become a Sticky Baits stockist.
The range with Sticky Baits is vast and has an avid loyal user base.
The range includes:
We stock the 1kg and 5kg bags of boilies in the following flavours:
