About Us

Stuart & Becky of Firthmill Fisheries opened BEX Bait & Tackle in Ipswich in December 2020, after transforming the former Hairdressing Salon during lockdown 2020.  The property was Becky’s father’s Salon Roberterry, a business that opened the year Becky was born in 1977.  

Located to the East of Ipswich town centre, there’s a carpark just behind the shop and a 2 minute walk from Sainsburys on Upper Brook Street! Single yellow lines outside the shop mean its easy to park up for click & collect collections and for blue badge holders!


You might know Stuart & Becky from Suffolk Water Park which Stuart ran for 3 years before Becky joined him for a further 7 years.  After leaving the Water Park during lockdown they decided to take BEX Bait & Tackle into town and open a boutique Bait & Tackle Shop, offering a good quality, select range of Carp & Course Bait, Tackle & Clothing.

There is already a range of Carp terminal tackle, rigs, Bait and accessories from NASH, ESP and Gardner in store with the introduction of Cult Carp luggage.


Coarse anglers can enjoy a range of terminal tackle from Drennan and Maver and Bait from Mainline.


Clothing, headwear and Footwear from Navitas and NASH has always proven popular with anglers and non-anglers and there are many new designs coming in every month!


If you do pop in to the shop when we re-open to visitors, there are plenty of offers and deals available such as Rod & Reel deals, Chairs, luggage and bait deals!


Meanwhile, enjoy browsing our online store!
