The Drennan tackle company was founded in 1967 when its current Managing
Director, Peter Drennan, began producing a small range of Balsawood
floats in his mother's garage. Having served his angling apprenticeship
with some of the finest anglers of that era; Dick Walker, Peter Stone,
the Taylor Brothers and England's first World Champion, Bill Lane, the
young Peter Drennan was already recognised as something of a tackle
expert. With the ability to design superior floats and the craft skill
to make them, the original one man business expanded steadily from those
humble garage beginnings.
Drennan International now offers more than 2500 individual products,
employs over 350 people and supplies over 2000 tackle shops direct from
its headquarters in England. Those shops are spread across the UK,
France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands and beyond this area
Drennan tackle has distributors in most other European countries.
