Excuse my ignorance but it's opening again as a tackle shop (which sounds obvious from the picture). But I'm always wary on April Fool's day!

No not opening as a tackle shop, it,s now a residential property but the new owners kept the old shop name.

It's a bit of a shame as under the sign featured on the Fallon's Angler cover the owner discovered an even older sign, it was wonderful, they should have simply sealed it and kept it as is. Saying that the young couple who now own the property are very pleasant and kept the front as they understood its important to many locals.
