marina walls and shop get new management and owners
A message from Dave and a changing of the guard
Well I’m sure most of you out there have heard the rumours of my intention to relinquish the management of the marina fishing arms.
Well here it is officially!
From Tuesday 16th of may one of my wardens, namely Mark Robinson takes over that responsibility.
Mark has worked hard over the last four years to earn this chance to manage what is in effect one of the biggest sea fishing venues anywhere that is open to the public, and I’m sure you will all wish him every success.
Also on that same day I will be saying goodbye to my shop “The Famous Tackle Box”. The new owner is Philip Metcalf who has a good knowledge of all things sea fishing and will retain all my wonderful staff through this transition.
I would like to say a massive thanks to all my wardens who have helped over the last 28 years, YOU Know who you are, and the many others. Without their help I could never have carried on for so long.
Thank you also to all of my staff, past and present in the tackle shop and of course all of my many customers old and new, both on the walls and in the shop in all of its locations.
At this point I would also like to thank the many friends that I have made along the way, I will miss you all.
Special thanks also for all the help with the social media and maintenance issues goes out to good friends
Frank Parker/ Craig Gosling/ Robin (fishyRob) Howard/ Steve Cooper and anyone else I have no doubt that I have missed out here.
I will still be about the marina, Jet washing (surprise surprise) and assisting Mark with some of the maintenance jobs.
I can’t wait to do some fishing on the walls so I may well see some you all down there one day soon.
Last of all my thanks to the marina directors John Davey, Andrew Knight, and Colin Tribe for all of their support and backing over the years and thanks also to their security and cleaning staff
Thank you all

A note from myself (frank)
I like a few out there have know these changes were coming but to see it actually in text on the website still comes with stirred emotions.
Ive know Dave as long as Ive known the marina, either to fish it or as a warden or indeed at times in the shop but much much more than that as a friend to myself and family and to the many anglers he has helped so freely in so many ways.
Obviously I wish Philip Metcalf and Mark Robinson the greatest success with the shop and walls which have been since I was aware of them:) but boy does it seem strange that there is now a changing of the guard so to speak!
Needless to say any help to both I can give will be given and this website will continue for the benefit of the tacklebox and the marina fishing walls.
Dave, your familiar face will be missed in the shop and on the walls not only as a boss and familiar face to many but mostly as a friend by the many whose lives (Including mine) you have touched. Hope to see you out there fishing really soon.
regards to all
Final words from Dave can be found on the blog dated 13th May 20023
