About Us



Specimen Fishing UK is located in the picturesque Coventry Canal Basin. We are a shop that aims to cater for the specimen angler, hence the name.The shop has been born out of the webshops Catfishing UK and Pikefishing UK, but now offers products for specimen anglers of all persuasions. We offer a range of quality tackle and bait from many leading manufacturers and hold probably the largest selection of lures in Warwickshire. Light lures are something of a speciality of ours with products sourced from the U.S., Japan and across Europe. If the drop shot and jigging scene is your thing then we will have products on the shelf that you would struggle to find elsewhere.  We are confident that there is something for everybody whether you target, carp, catfish, pike or barbel. Most of our products will be available via the websites, alternatively, just pop in and see us in store. We can also take orders via the telephone.

Shop owner, Dave Mutton is also a qualified level 2 Angling coach and can offer tuition in all disciplines to groups and individuals and can tailor coaching and guiding from as short as 2 hours on the canal outside the shop front right up to a weeks guided carp or catfishing in France.

Specimen Fishing UK control the fishing rights to the canal basin and offer free fishing to customers, make sure you get permission before starting fishing. priority will always be given to coaching and demo events which are held regularly by the team in the shop and partner suppliers.
