Tackle Reviews

Here at Essex Anglers we like to help new Anglers find the right gear and tackle for them, so below are the Tackle Reviews have done, a lot of the below is gear we use all the time and have got ourselves, but we do get the odd chance to review other Tackle. Hopefully this helps all you Anglers decide whether a piece of Tackle is the match for you.
