Welcome to Angling Direct:

About Us

Fosters of Birmingham is a family owned business established in 1978 owned and run by brothers Richard and Mark Foster and Mark's wife Gill. We are one of the largest fishing tackle retailers, mail order and on-line specialists in Europe and employ over 20 full and part time staff.

We moved to our new site in March 2007 and currently have over 17000 sq ft of space which is well stocked with a superb Pole Alley, Bivvy Village and all the well known Brand names.

Most of our business centres on Coarse, Match and Specimen fishing tackle, although we also carry significant stocks of both Sea and Game fishing tackle and are expanding in both of these fields rapidly.

Whether you're a novice, an accomplished or an experienced angler, Fosters of Birmingham have what you want when you want it. That's not surprising when you consider we have well over a million pounds worth of stock on display at any one time. We won't disappoint you.

Great Savings

Fishing is an all year round sport, so we have all year round savings on hundreds of items of tackle - many at less than half price! And that's not all, we refuse to be beaten on price, just browse our on-line store, email or ask us for a quotation.

Insurance Claims

We have a dedicated Insurance Claims Department that can supply you with an itemised quote for your stolen tackle free of charge. We can also deal with your claim direct with your Insurance Company or Loss Adjuster. If we can secure a speedy acceptance for the claim from your Insurance Company we can often have your tackle replaced and delivered to you on an overnight carrier within days.

Rod Building

Fosters of Birmingham offer a full custom rod building service. All our rods are expertly built by Bob (the Rod) Davies.Bob has been repairing, restoring and building rods since he joined Fosters when they first opened in 1978. With nearly 30 years experience, it's no surprise that Bob has won several 'Best of' awards (check out our own "Spod Rod") and accolades for his products. The rods he builds are of a top quality finish, second to none. He builds Carp, Pike, Barbel and any other specialist rods you may require, using only top quality blanks and all the current state of the art fittings. For more details on this or any of our other services, please feel free to call us on 0121 344 3333 or email
