About us

Willow Grange Pet and Animal Feed first opened its doors in 2002, with husband and wife duo Michael and Fiona Dunne.
It was very much solely for animal feed in 2002 until a customer asked if they were able to get a sack of hemp for him, and from here on out Willow Grange grew as a tackle shop. They started off by selling bags of hemp, bread crumb and Vitalin to fishermen and then dipped there toe into tackle with some terminal gear but vowed never to sell rods and bigger items!  Until the day a wholesaler accidently left a box of rods with them, customers started to buy the rods straight out of the box and as they say, the rest is history!

Willow Grange Tackle & Bait is based in Chittering between Cambridge & Ely and is set in a 3,500sqft converted barn, we hold a vast array of all of the top brands in Angling and have the biggest range of bulk bait in East Anglia which includes being a Bait Centre for Mainline, full range of Sticky Baits, full range of Coppens pellets, also Pigeon feed and bulk sacks of Peas, pulses, seeds and so much more.
