We caught up with family man, electritian and entrepreneur Craig Sapsford.
Craig is the visionary behind one of the fastest growing terminal tackle companies in the UK battling against the likes of Korda, Nash and Fox, yet holding his own! Here’s the Rigworx story so far…
”Im a full time Electrician and have been for 15 years now. I have two children, one boy who is ten years old and a little girl who is three years old.
I’ve always loved fishing and have been fishing since I was five, mainly float and ledgering on rivers such as the Ouse and the Thames.
When I was 15 I briefly started carp fishing for about two years. I carried on coarse fishing and in 2015 took up Carp fishing again.
In 2018 I decided to start up Rigworx while carrying on my full time electrical job to have a crack at running a business, as my father and grandfather were both business owners.
I thought, why not start something in a hobby and sport I love! Everyone wants their dream job right?
After two months of deciding on a name and contacting various logo designers Rigworx and its iconic logo was born! A logo and a name both original and something I felt had real character and depth to it.
I set out to supply top quality tackle the same quality if not better than your Kordas and Nash bits but at lower and more fair prices for your average family man and angler like myself, without compromising quality.
Extensive testing and sampling finally got me a few products to sell and from there we have sustainably been adding to our range and boast a very impressive range of tackle with 60+ team members and consultants who all confidently promote our tackle.”
Rigworx offer a range of terminal tackle from hooks, swivels and tungsten rig putty to silicone sleeves, zig aligners and hook kickers.
So if you’re looking to tie a blowback rig or quickly knock up a Ronnie rig, Rigworx have got you covered.
