Fishing Republic at Clavering Lakes

Big fish. Beautiful surroundings. Great food. And a 5,000ft2 Fishing Republic tackle and bait superstore. No wonder anglers (and their families) are beating a path to this popular Essex fishery.

Fishing Tackle Essex

Top brand tackle and the most prolific winter fishing  - just a short hop from the M11.

But, as local anglers ‘in the know’ agree, a visit to Fishing Republic Clavering is more than worthwhile. And since the road in question runs past four well-stocked lakes and a fully licensed restaurant, it gives anglers the chance to get their ‘fix’ and treat the family at the same time.

Fishing Shop Location

Some Of The Fishing Tackle Brands We Stock

Despite its rural location - in the heart of the north Essex countryside - Fishing Republic’s new superstore at Clavering Lakes is just 25 minutes from junction 8 of the M11; around 30 minutes from Bishop’s Storford, Harlow, Haverhill and Cambridge.

One of seven stores located in East Anglia and the Home Counties, Fishing Republic Essex carries 1,000s of product lines spanning the most popular angling disciplines; from carp and coarse, to predator, match and fly fishing. Like its sister stores, it’s open seven days a week - till late on Thursdays and Fridays. And it’s stocked, quite literally, to the rafters with fishing tackle and bait, clothing, camping gear, cookware and accessories from the top manufacturers, including Fox, Shimano, Daiwa, Avid, Nash, Korda and many more.

Interest Free Finance is available on all purchases over £300. And the company’s Click-Try-Buy facility even allows anglers to browse products online - then have those products delivered to the store for them to try-out before parting with their cash.

Enjoy a free ‘tackle test-drive’ with Click Try Buy

Even a store as large as Fishing Republic Clavering couldn’t hope to carry every make, model and variant of tackle. Which is why the company recently introduced Click-Try-Buy: a unique facility which allows anglers to select the products they’re interested in online, then have those products delivered to their local store for them to appraise before parting with their cash.

Assistant Manager

The secret to Fishing Republic’s success is really no secret at all: it’s our people. Every member of staff in our stores is passionate about angling. And they’re equally committed to introducing and supporting newcomers to the sport.

Clavering is no exception: Manager Harry has been carp fishing for more years than he’d care to remember. And Assistant Manager Glynn fishes at every opportunity, and for anything that swims - from rudd and tench in summer, to perch and pike in winter. So they’re perfectly qualified to advise beginners and experienced anglers alike on the going baits, rigs and venues.

Lakeside Dining

at the Clavering Lodge Cafe

Given all this it’s small wonder that Fishing Republic Essex is fast becoming the ‘destination tackle store’ for anglers throughout the region.

Whatever takes your fancy (and however big your appetite), you’ll find a warm welcome - and a mouthwatering menu - at the Clavering Lodge restaurant. With its attractive decking area overlooking the lakes, it’s also great place to enjoy a glass of wine, and watch the water, before you return to your swim.
