Fishing Tackle, antiques and taxidermy
 
Taxidermy by the best fosh taxidermist in Scotland

The shop is run by Chris. You will find racks of rods, many at special offer prices. His flies are very well tied - not at all over dressed. One wall is dedicated to antique fishing tackle. You will find lots of old reels - Hardy Perfects etc...dating from the last two centuries. Some interesting antique lures are also on display and for sale.

 

You will see lots of examples of the taxidermy by Chris. A competent taxidermist for fish is a rarity these days. Chris is not only competent - he is genuinely one of the very best. Not only does he do salmonids (He did Harry Camp's 28lb salmon from the 2000 opening as well as brown trout to 15lb caught on Loch Rannoch) but also treats coarse species. His mounting of grayling is superb. For the non-angler you can also buy examples of mammals and birds.

Also included in the Shop are lots of crafts. Chris promotes local craftsmen. Items such as horn carvings are in abundance.
