Supplying top quality fishing tackle since the 1960'S

The Past

In the 1960s, active fisherman Jack Charlton started Charltons Fishing. Jack began making tackle and fishing items long before he sold them to the public. He would make sidecast reels and rods for friends and family and sell them in a small shop under his home on Videroni Street Bundamba. The operation soon outgrew the space, so Jack moved it to another house on the highway at Riverview. The Council eventually shut down his business, so he closed the doors to his equipment sales.
Jack’s son, Brian, bought the business from his parents in 1975 and relocated to Brisbane Road at Redbank. He developed the tackle shop into a larger business out of a house he renovated to act as his shop. Seven years later, he upgraded his facility to a former service station at Riverview. The Main Roads Department shut down the operation two years later. 
The business was then re-opened in its current location being one of the first purpose built Tackle stores in Australia.

The Future

The current site on the Ipswich motorway came about after Brian took a holiday and reevaluated his options. He bought the current space in an effort to develop Queensland’s best tackle shop. Since then, the shop has only grown with an increasing supply of high-quality fishing paraphernalia and tackle to meet the growing demand.
