The Hardy Brothers of Alnwick

The books on this page are all about the most famous fishing tackle manufacturer in the world. Written by James L. Hardy, John James Hardy and respected experts in the field of angling history, they cover all aspects of the firm, from its humble origins from a small shop in Alnwick, Northumberland in 1872 to its position at the forefront of the angling industry. The success of the firm was largely due to the entrepreneurial qualities of the original Hardy brothers, coupled with the output of some highly skilled craftsmen and women.

These beautifully produced books are of interest to anyone who owns a Hardy rod, reel, lure or other angling ephemera but will also be of great value to those fascinated by British angling history over the last century.
