The underlying principles of innovation product quality and service are the cornerstone of Sharpes of Aberdeen who can trace a history dating back to 1920 when J S Sharpe set up his tackle business in John Street Aberdeen. The Sharpes of Aberdeen built a reputation for quality and innovation in the design and manufacture of split cane rods and this continues today with the award winning Gordon series of fly rods. This extensive range continues to receive excellent customer and trade feedback. Besides the Gordon series we also have the beautifully finished Plus 3 fly rod series with all the salmon rods manufactured in 6 pieces for ease of travelling. Sharpes of Aberdeen landing nets (we made the original Gye nets and they are made to the same exacting standards and materials today as when they were first made) and wading staffs that faithfully follow a long standing design and are widely regarded as the industry standard and market leaders. Sharpes of Aberdeen is now located at Artloch Fishery near Huntly Aberdeenshire adjacent to the River Deveron both of which are a natural asset and thorough test ground for products in all weathers.
