Daiwa at Mill Tackle

Members of the Daiwa team including Steve Ringer and Sandra Scotthorne recently attended an open day to celebrate the new Mill Tackle shop in Heanor, Derbyshire.

The shop is owned and ran by Sam Wildsmith. Known as 'Big Sam ' he is a well known character within the UK match scene and is the main supplier of bloodworm and joker which he collects from different parts of Europe on a weekly basis.

Sam has been doing his weekly bait run for the last 13 years and has notched up thousands of road miles to keep the UK match scene supplied with the bait.

He has also been an instrumental member of the Barnsley Blacks side and has fished with them for the last 12 years. He competed at the highest level in 2011 when fishing in the World Club Championships in Serbia.

Sam purchased the original Mill Tackle in 2008 and due to the success of his business has been forced into bigger and better premises. The new shop is very well laid out and has endless amounts of terminal tackle for match and specimen anglers to browse. It is well situated and has brilliant parking facilities at the rear of the shop.
