The last thing any self-respecting angler wants to do is hurt or damage a fish. The majority of this damage happens during the unhooking process when the fish is flapping and thrashing around. For this reason, we have a large range of padded unhooking mats to better care for the fish you catch while you unhook them. We also have a range of weighing and retention slings to properly care for the fish during the weighing and releasing process. Take a look below so you can find the right carp unhooking mat for you.
Fishing Republic dates back to 1985 when the company’s founder and Executive Director, Steve Gross, established a business selling fishing flies and fly tying materials to fishing tackle wholesalers. In 2005, Fishing Republic opened our first store in Barnsley. Since then the company has grown to be the Largest Fishing Tackle retailer in the UK.
With the extensive angling knowledge within our company and the exceptional customer service we offer both in store and online, it’s clear to see why Fishing Republic is Number 1.
