Under New Ownership

Hello my name is Jeff Davis, I have recently purchased West Malling Angling.

Shop Frontage Old

I have lived in the Maidstone area for 25 years and have been an active part of the Kent and Sussex match fishing scene for all of that time. I have been a keen fisherman from the age of 5 and started match fishing at the age of 15 (that’s 40 years). I have fished at national level and have achieved both individual and section placements. I have been part of the successful Papermakers (now Tonbridge Cardinals) match group for most of that time.

My family are an active part of my angling life, my wife Mary achieved success at ladies national level, and my son and his wife have achieved and continue to achieve match fishing success both locally and at national level.

For those of you who are not “match fishing” orientated, you might be relieved to hear I also have a great general interest in fishing. I am very keen in the introduction to and the encouragement of young people to our sport. I am actively involved in fishing and fishery management being the secretary of the Len Valley Preservation & Angling Society. In that capacity I have the opportunity to deal with the Environment Agency, the Angling Trust, local fishery management companies and also Parish and Borough Councils. Whilst my main skill and expertise will lie in the match fishing area, I fully intend to provide a knowledgeable service in all other aspects of our great pastime including Carp, Fly and Predator Angling.

My aim is to build on the achievements of West Malling Angling over the last four years by both maintaining and improving the quality of service you have previously experienced. I intend to ensure that you can find the right product on the shelves at all times and at the right price. I will be asking for your help in this regard as I will welcome your suggestions for improvements or additions to ranges already stocked. If I don’t have what you are looking for I will make every effort to source it within a few days (stock availability permitting).

 I will be restructuring the inside of the shop to allow more open space where product can be more easily seen and handled, somewhere where you can sit on and try out a tackle box seat or bivvy bed, or try on footwear for size. Don’t worry I won’t be closing the shop to do this, it will be “work in progress” and I hope to keep disruption to an absolute minimum.

 I will also be re-designing the shop web site, and will be listing all of the products held in stock, this will not only allow me to sell on line but also allow existing shop customers to check stock availability at any time. I hope also to list all local matches and events coming up and report recent match results. There will be a bait ordering form to complete which will save you a day time telephone call or if you can only order out of shop opening hours.
