Angling Times (UK) - - NEWS -

AN­OTHER part of Lon­don’s angling his­tory is about to bite the dust as Judds of Hilling­don pre­pares to close its doors for the fi­nal time.

Judds, along with Simp­sons of Turn­ford, Ash­poles of Stoke New­ing­ton, Youngs of Har­row, Don’s of Ed­mon­ton and Woodys of Wem­b­ley, formed an awe­some group of deal­ers, with Woodys now the sole sur­vivor of what was once the hub of the Lon­don fish­ing tackle scene.

The shop will still be open for a while yet, def­i­nitely Fri­days and Satur­days, to clear its stocks at rock-bot­tom prices.

It’s al­ways sad to see a tackle shop go, but when it’s been such a part of Lon­don’s scene for so long it’s par­tic­u­larly poignant. I wish Den­nis Har­ri­gan and brother Chris a happy re­tire­ment and, per­haps, more time on the bank.
