Who We Are
Fishing Republic is one of the largest retailers of fishing tackle in the UK. The Fishing Republic Group’s origins date back to 1985 when the company’s founder and Chief Executive, Steve Gross, aged 13 years, established a business selling fishing flies and fly tying materials to fishing tackle wholesalers. Operating from physical stores and online, the company today caters for all types of anglers (coarse, carp, game and sea fishing), supplying a comprehensive range of products, including all the leading brands. The company currently operates a chain of seven retail outlets in the north of England, with a combined footprint of approximately 61,500 square feet of retail and warehousing space. Stores are typically located in out-of town, light industrial sites which mean lower rents so Fishing Republic can offer better prices. All stores have car parking facilities. All Fishing Republic sales staff are able to provide advice on products and share an interest in fishing. Fishing Republic have also developed a range of own brand products, including Klobba for clothing and Theseus for fishing tackle.
