Veals Mail Order (VMO) are sea fishing tackle specialists.
It was way back in 1846 when Veals was first established as a retail business in Bristol. Over the years ‘Veals’ became Bristol’s premier fishing tackle retailer. In the 1960’s a small mail order service was introduced and this subsequently developed to the extent that by the early 90’s it was proving very difficult to combine the needs of both a bustling retail shop and a rapidly growing mail order business within the same now cramped building. So in 1992, ‘Veals Mail Order’ was formed as a totally separate company and relocated to a specially designed warehouse on the southern outskirts of Bristol. From where they could provide a dedicated sea angling mail order service. This move has allowed Veals Mail Order to expand the range of sea fishing tackle we stock and also greatly improve the speed and efficiency of our service.

Our principles remain the same now as they were back then and that is to try and provide a service for our customers that is second to none.

  • Whenever possible orders are despatched the same day.
  • We sell reliable 'fit for purpose' tackle.
  • We hold large stocks to try and minimise stock shortages as much as possible.
  • We try to treat you, as we would like to be treated ourselves.
  • Competitive pricing.
  • A truly comprehensive range including exclusive and hard to obtain tackle.

To provide the service levels needed we have always invested in technology

  • 1989 Invested in an Amstrad computer ( upgraded 1 megabyte model!! ).
  • 1998 One of the first, if not the first, UK fishing web site.
  • 1999 Built our first on-line shopping cart to allow secure orders to be placed at any time .
  • 2000 As a welcome to the 21st Century we introduced our 'members' area to reward loyal customers.
  • 2003 Published our first comprehensive 'in house' sea catalogue with its mix of tackle and informative articles.
  • 2006 A new web site designed to be more informative and inter-active.
  • 2010 Revised software to try and provide an even faster turnaround on online orders.
  • 2014 Redesigned and further improved web-site.

We will always strive to give you great service, products, and deals in the same friendly, efficient way that has seen Veals Mail Order become the leading saltwater tackle supplier in Britain.
