Somers’ Fishing Tackle


Somers Fishing Tackle has been at the heart of the angling community in the North East of Scotland for decades. Jim Somers opened his shop in 1951 on Thistle Street in Aberdeen and soon established a strong reputation. Somers was the manufacturer of the famous Grant Vibration Green Heart Rod, which many anglers, of a certain vintage, claim to be one of the best roads ever created. This rod cemented Somers Fishing as a quality manufacturer of products for the angling industry in the UK. Unfortunately, as Jims health declined he made the decision to sell the shop to the current owner, David Craik.

The shop, now managed by Colin Craik, stocks all the major angling brands and has a first class fly tying section. The shop staff know their products intimately and can help and guide customers ensuring the highest standards of service and expertise.

“We pride ourselves on having the best product range and the highest standards of customer service at Somers. We are all passionate fishers in the shop, so we understand our customers and take great pride in making sure they are well looked after. I am always on the lookout for new products and like to think we are ahead of the game in providing the very best tackle, clothing and fly tying materials.”
