My name is Tim Lennon. I have been collecting and using vintage tackle for more than thirty years, ever since my late uncle kindly gave me his battered old Rapidex reel.
From that time forward I’ve used centrepin reels whenever practical and have always found that they provide much better control whilst playing fish. Amongst my favourite centrepins are the Allcock Aerials, so consequently you will usually find a few for sale within these pages.
I’ve been a fanatical angler for even longer than I’ve been collecting vintage tackle! For 45 years I’ve been catching fish, mostly barbel. Other favourite species are tench, roach, and grayling.
