Once upon a time in Arcadia, ladies and gentlemen abroad on the streets of Subtopia in search of 'The Finest Fishing Rods and Tackle' could call in at Harolds Gun & Fishing Tackle Stores on Botwell Lane in Hayes in the district of Middlesex. So highly thought of was the Harolds' stock that they boasted the reputation, 'We Are the People'.
Should you be a lady or a gentleman abroad on the streets of London or a day return refugee from Subtopia in search of 'The Finest Fishing Rods and Tackle' you are advised that the door to Harolds has sadly long since closed like so many of London's old fishing tackle shops. But do not fret for every Thursday between the hours of 8am and 3pm I sell 'Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul' from my stall at Spitalfields Antiques Market on Commercial Street in the district of London known as E.1. Regular callers and passers-by are always welcome. Thank-you.
