What Our Customers Say
'Fortunate in having three angling shops near me but only having started in 2017 after a 55 year gap my son in law and I tend to gravitate to Anglers Den. Why - Because it is so easy to park outside and parking is free, they offer a good range of tackle, clothing, etc. at competitive prices and the guys that run it are not only helpful to a newbie like me when I need advice, but perhaps just as importantly are always friendly whenever I call in.
Ok, easy to buy on the Net but why do that when you have shops like this local and you can see what you are buying. Use them or lose them I say.' (5 Star ***** Google Review )Ted Edwards 26th July 2018

I recently had an accident with one of my old bass spinning rods and asked the Guys to replace the broken eye for me. The finished eye is finished off exactly like the originals and only cost me £5-50. Incredible setvice and such a welcoming non judgemental team working there. It is my unequevicable pleasure to highly recommend Anglers Den to anyone novice or experienced alike. You will not be made to feel stupid if you ask for any advice.
Cheers Guys. Richard (Richard Cowderoy. Comments and Feedback e-form 14th May 2017)

Great tackle and bait shop and helpful staff for the novice or expert fisherman. (5 Star ***** Facebook Review ) David Cole 3rd April 2017
My girlfriend and I recently had a casting lesson with Glyn. He was very friendly and an excellent teacher. Our fees all went to McMillan Cancer charity. I've been self taught for two years and through an understanding of the technique I should have been using, my cast became much more fluid and my casting distance went up dramatically using a lot less power than I had before. It was my girlfriends first proper time casting with a her first rod. Glyn was extremely patient with her and made her feel comfortable that her first few casts weren't great and helped her focused on the positives and not the negatives. As he helped her, her casts were getting better and better and by the end of the hour, he'd taught her a cast with a lovely technique and the distances were climbing. I can't recommend Glyn enough to anyone wanting to improve their casting.

First class service from the off. An e mail enquiry was promptly replied to, with Glyn willing to discuss over the phone my potential purchase. Upon ordering the item on Tuesday afternoon it arrived less than 48 hours later, Fantastic service and I would not hesitate to use Anglers Den again and would certainly recommend them to fellow anglers.

Also enjoyed the instructional videos on You Tube. Very informative and useful for someone like me, who is trying to teach himself to fish.
Thanks and will definitely return for more gear.'

I arranged a beachcasting lesson for 2 adults and 9 year old. Glyn was very helpful right from the start and offered a session that suited us perfectly. The lesson itself was excellent - informative, practical and great fun. Glyn explained everything very clearly and gave lots of positive encouragement. Rods were provided so we didn't need to worry about getting our own kit.
The staff at Anglers Den were friendly, helpful and informative and I would definitely recommend them.

'I Just wanted to thank you for your friendly advice on fishing marks and giving directions as i,ve never fished the area before. I Had a great days fishing on Thursday at Langney Point. I love sea fishing but because I live in Aylesbury and freetime is always short I can,t go very often. I chose your shop for bait and a few bits of tackle over other shops because your websiteprovided a lot of information and ienjoyedthe videos especially onwhat species to catch and what season. Many thanks, hope will see you again soon. Ivan Smith, Email -12th Feb 2016.

'Having looked on the internet for local fishing tackle shops I decided Anglers Den Sussex was the place to go, what a great decision!My partner and I visited the store on the morning of Saturday 5 September (due to an invite to go boat fishing the next day) We were met with a warm welcome and were guided through what was appropriate tackle, rod and reel and even how to use it and where.Having returned home rather excited with my new toys I set to work making up the traces (as instructed to the best of my limited knowledge), now even more excited in wanting to try them out.Sunday came and we set off from Eastbourne marina to drift fish near the tower and were rewarded with: several mackerel...a 'ballan wrasse'.. bream...2 dogfish..2 powting.So thanks again, really appreciate your patience in talking us through the basics and we will certainly be back to replace items still clinging on to rocks and to expand my basic kit.' Kevin Watts 10th Sept 2015.

'Kevin and Glyn went out of there way to help me.
I'm a beginner and know very little about fishing so I was very happy to see the enthusiasm they showed me. They took the time to talk to me and even showed me how to tie a shock leader.
I will definitely be going back as I start to build up my fishing gear.
Awesome shop, awesome people.' (5 Star ***** Facebook Review Comments) Tollmart Greybeard (Nov 2014).
Brilliant. Recently moved to Eastbourne, and never tried fishing before. I went to the Angler's Den after finding the website, only intending to buy the beginners kit, but came away with my head buzzing with information and tips. After watching the youtube videos and reading everything on the site about marks etc, went down to White Horses only intending to practice casting, but caught three mackerel in a very short time on the 4 feather lure in the kit. Time to go back to the Den to get some bait and advice on catching bigger stuff! Totally hooked :-) Iain (Sept 2014).

'Nothing too much trouble for the boys, will all ways give sound advice on tackle and where to fish...' (5 Star ***** Facebook Review Comments) Rod Reynolds (Feb2014).
'As a beginner in the spring of 2013 I found Kevin and Glynn very knowledgeable. They will go out of their way to help you with anything you need from tackle to answering the most basic or advanced questions.The Anderida club which runs out of the Anglers Den have competitions roughly every two weeks approximately 15-20 taking part, competitive but fun at the same time. Met some great characters and thoroughly enjoy the fishing. Worth a visit from beginner to advanced level.' (5 Star ***** Facebook Review Comments) Paul McKay (Jan 2014).
'In one one-hour session, he taught my sons and I how to cast, how to tie knots, and the different tackle used for catching different species of fish. His enthusiasm is infectious, his instruction is clearly expressed, his patience is saintly, and, like all good teachers, he appreciates the importance of giving praise when it is due...Book a lesson with Glyn; it will increase your ambition and enjoyment ten-fold.'
