The shops need to learn to sell online as well as being a shop, or sell other stuff as well -
eg. Budgie Burgess shop also trades online https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheThamesTackleTrader/
eg. Percy Chapmans - pet food and garden stuff with fishing tackle at the back

I can confirm the Fishing Shack, a few hundred yards towards Egham from Thorpe Lee fishery,  is up and running. Mark and Jeff (I think, but I've got a dreadful memeory for names) are very friendly, up for a chat and sell a good pint or several of maggots, wide range of other baits and a decent selection of tackle from their little shed.

They're doing OK (gone a bit quiet recently) but do need support from anglers, especially as they were burgled a few months back and have had to seriously upgrade their security as well as bear significant losses insurers won't cover. So if you're heading to Thorpe/Twynersh or Thames around Runnymede to Chertsey, do consider spending some of your cash there.

I'm pretty certain it's gone west (metaphorically, not moved to Windsor) as I regularly drive past it - don't always crane my neck round to see their unit - and not once seen it open in well over a year.

It's now re-emerged as the Fishing Shack, open Saturdays and Sundays 10am-4pm for sale of tackle and bait (including maggots), according to information my wife found on a local information web site. I've seen the board outside, but not had a chance nor reason to visit it yet, but have found this Facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/search/107823805911869/places-in/175333089178368/places/intersect/

Very handy for Thorpe Lee & Twynersh and not too bad for Runnymede-Staines-Chertsey reaches of the Thames if you don't fancy risking the trafic wardens outside Davies Tackle or want to avoid Staines Bridge (depending on your origin/destination).
