Last weekend I picked up a cane fly rod upon which is written in ink...

Watsons Northampton Ltd
272 Wellingborough Road

I'm familiar with several (now closed) Northampton tackle shops, plus Gilders on the Wellingborough Road that are still going, but have not heard of Watsons. Does anyone have any information - or better still memories - of the shop?
