Let's go fishing!
Compleat Angler began more than 50 years ago, when a group of passionate fishermen got together with the aim of establishing a business where their collective buying power would afford them buying advantages over other independent fishing and tackle retailers.
Since the first store opened in 1967 Compleat Angler had grown and in 2004 joined the ARL group. This meant that Compleat Angler members could be more aggressive at a retail level and active during all fishing, outdoor and adventure retailing periods throughout the year.
Over time the Compleat Angler brand has become synonymous with the tackle industry. It’s a brand that has immediate recognition with consumers, which in turn provides the members with instant credibility.
