Kim at Angling Essentials, Witham is retiring this coming Friday 24 November.  Fortunately, the business has been purchased very recently by a Bob Saich.  There will be a period of transition as the new owner will be changing the layout in the shop and adding new ranges of tackle. Kim has been selling KDAA memberships for many years and we wish him all the best in his retirement. Angling Essentials Facebook

Phil Milsom, owner of Elmstead Tackle and Colchester Bait and Tackle has taken over the shop unit previously used by Wass Tackle in Copford, Colchester.  It is trading under the name of Copford Angling.  The shop has been newly stocked and is now open with the same telephone number.  They have a new Facebook Page and a new website is under development.

This is good news that there will still be tackle shops in Copford and Witham.
