We thought you might be interested to see some of the vintage and antique items we have in stock at our Thomas Turner Fishing Antiques online store right now.

Quite a few items have been winging their way across the Atlantic to both the USA and Canada this year with vintage collectible rods and reels like Hardy Perfects, but also high-end modern variations on the theme like the famous Farlows of Pall Mall, London's 175th Anniversary 'Regal' reel - a beautiful contemporary classic made with modern materials and precision.
