Store Opening Times

Our Winforton Store is Temporarily Closed
The wellbeing of our customers and staff is of the utmost importance
to us and because of this we feel it is now in the best
interests of both to close our store until further notice.
We continue to operate our online, call/collect (see more below) and mail order service.

Call and Collect Service

We are delighted to now be able to offer a safe and socially–distanced call and collect service at our Winforton store from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

To use the service, call us on 01544 327 111 and we will process, pick and pack your order ready for same day collection outside the premises. We regret we cannot allow store access, fitting of waders and clothing, or testing of rods at this time, but if you are local, or fishing in the Wye Valley, we are here to help!

How To Find Us

Our store is easy to find, situated on the A438 between Hereford and Brecon in the pretty village of Winforton close to the famous river Wye. We are a short drive away from the popular tourist town of Hay-On-Wye, so why not combine a visit to our Angling Superstore with a visit to the many book shops in Hay-on-Wye. View our entire product range under one roof and then try any rod on our 30m casting pool. We also have access to the River Wye at Whitney Court for you to try salmon rods. Easy parking and a warm welcome come as standard.

About Sportfish Winforton

Situated close to Hereford in the heart of the delightful Wye Valley, the Sportfish Winforton game fishing superstore always carries an extensive range of products from all leading manufacturers, showcasing the very finest in fishing tackle, clothing, waders and accessories.

If you want to try before you buy, there is a 30m on-site casting pool and access to the River Wye at Whitney Court is possible by prior arrangement if you wish to try salmon rods.

With easy parking, hot coffee and a warm welcome it’s a great stop off for any game fisherman but if you are unable to call in, don’t worry, our award-winning internet and mail order service is second to none and we endeavour to get all orders dispatched in full within one business day.

Steve Hunt

Senior Sales & Technical Advisor at Sportfish Winforton

I would describe myself as an all round angler, but I am happiest with a fly rod in my hand. I have been lucky to fish a number of destinations over the years; Cuba, Belize, Australia and Norway to name but a few, however I still have one or two destinations on my to-do list these include the Seychelles and Russia. Prior to working at Sportfish I served my country in the Armed Forces.
