Welcome all to the latest version of


The old Tackle-Trader has become dated and the need for additional functions is the reason for the new look TT site.  Although work is still being done on this new site, the problems with the old server, have meant that we have had to launch earlier than planned. This is the 4th version of TT since 1998. There will be some teething problems, especially around the logging in process. So please bear with us.


Once you have logged on you can go to your profile page and change your password to a memorable word of your choice.

Your telephone number may not be visible on your ads. To make your telephone number visible, go to your "profile" (top right hand side of page). From here you can elect whether you want your telephone number visible on your ads or not.  Just click on the relevent box to change it. Reverse the process if you don't want your number on your ads.


The new system is far more secure and because of this it will not allow spacers within usersnames. For example, if your username was ONE CARP, on the new site you will have to logon as ONECARP without the space. This will also mean that usernames cannot be duplicated for example we had 42 members who had the username "John". The first member that logs onto thd new site with a duplicated username will keep that username. Any other member with the same name will be given a new username. So for example the first "John" to login will keep "John" the second user who logs in with the same name will be given a new uaername, for example "John1".
Ads will be transferred across from the old site to the new, however private messages will not be transferred over.


If there is a major problem I will revert back to the old site.

The site has several new features which include a feedback system, a more efficient search facility, ad text which no longer requires html code, profile pages, commercial pages (coming soon) etc.

I hope you enjoy the new site. I will help all I can with the transition.  Any problems, just text or call me on 07701 054 538 or email me

Thanks in advance for you patience and continued support.

Most of you know this but for those who are unsure...

If you pay by gift and there is a problem with the sale you will stuggle to get your money back.

If you do decide to gift money at the very least speak to the seller and obtain as many details as you can. If you haven't dealt with that person before I would still recommend that you don’t gift but pay as goods. The commission is 4%, at least you have piece of mind.

If the sellers telephone number is unobtainable or the person who picks the phone up doesn’t know what your talking about then you must start thinking the deal maybe dodgy.

If your still not sure about the user message or ring me ..... Alan ... on 07701 054 538.

Be Careful

Tackle-Trader is like any other classified/auction type platform whether its Loot, Adtrader, a fishing forum or even Ebay there are people out there looking to fleece you. You don't need me to tell you that.

If an item seems cheap, at the very least and before you commit to sending money you must ideally talk to the seller first to establish who they are and where they live.

We all love a bargain and there are genuine bargains to be had, just be careful. I have said before and we all know.... " If it seems to good to be true it probably is" so at the very least contact the seller in person and don't just rely on messages via the site.

I'm not against gift payments through paypal as I prefer it myself, however, if you are going to gift money only do it if you know the person and again at the very least have all there details, full name address home telephone number. If there is a problem its unlikely that you will get your money back without having to get the police involved or taking a civil action against the other party. The same applies to a bank transfer, you need all the persons details you can get. I CAN'T give out details unless its for the police because of the data protection act, so you need to obtain all the relevent information.


If any of you see any ad on here or receive any message that you think maybe a bit dodgey contact me. I will have a look at the user and check his details. I'm also willing to tell anybody the history of any user. The site is setup now so you can see how long a user has been a member and how many posts he has made. You can also view all his older posts regardless of thier status, ie sold, closed etc. Just click on there username to view these details.

If your'e still not sure about someone just contact me and I'll tell you thier history..

I will not give out any personal details (Data protection act) so please do not ask me.


Answering messages

Had a few members mention to me about users sending messages and not getting ant response from the recipient. I appreciate that sometimes some of us are very busy people. There is no rule that you have to respond to messages but please just bear in mind that someone has taken the trouble to message you so a response would be nice even if its a very short response like "No thanks" or "Not interested".

Sold Items

When items are sold can users either put sold on the ad or close the ad save people trying to buy something that's already gone. Thanks.

Hopefully the site will continue to grow as it has done for the last 18 years. I have always considered that the Tackle-Trader community is very tight, long may that continue.

As always thanks for your support.


Reliable Descriptions Of Items For Sale.

Reliable Descriptions Of Items For Sale.


Please try and be as accurate as you can with describing your items for sale.

I don't get many complaints about this, very rarely will someone contact me with issues around inaccurate descriptions of stuff.

How I describe items.

Unused or New means exactly that.

Mint or in unused condition means used but as new condition

Excellent or slightly used means not in as new condition but near that.

Very Good is between above and below this.

Some wear or good is shows signs of wear but still fine.

Heavy wear or well used is exactly that

Poor to me is on its last legs.

Broken is exactly that.

Please be as honest as you can, you can always elaborate on your ad.
