Glasgow Angling Centre's popular three-day Open Weekend

If you are a big fan of Sea Fishing, you don't want to miss Glasgow Angling Centre's popular three-day Open Weekend, held on the 2nd - 4th March at Fishingmegastore.  The event gets bigger and better each year and consistently lives up to its reputation of being "the biggest and best free angling show in the UK.”

During the three days, GAC opens its 30,000sqft store, where anglers travel from all over the UK and further afield to meet some of the biggest names in Sea Fishing, where they will be offering FREE advice on how to improve your catches.  Also, they will be on hand to talk you through the latest developments in sea fishing tackle and clothing.

You can rub shoulders with Paul Young, Steve Souter, George Cunningham, Paul Johnstone, and many more famous UK sea anglers.  They are available throughout the three days to chat about gear and to answer your questions.  Also find out about all the latest beach rods, multiplier reels, sea lures, and LRF gear for 2018 and get an exclusive preview of new products in development or due for release.

This year's event has an impressive line up of sea angling brands including Greys, Penn, Daiwa, TronixPro, Imax, Leeda, Shimano, Sonik, HTO, Shakespeare, Vercelli, Abu Garcia, Savage Gear, and dozens more.  Each brand will have a representative on hand to promote all the latest gear.  So you will have the opportunity to have a play and try things out - that's what this event is all about!

At the event, you can expect to see a vast selection of sea fishing terminal tackle, rigs, and lures for all types of sea fishing situations.  In attendance will be top sea fishing tackle manufacturers Tronixpro, Breakaway, Gemini, Mustad, Suffix, Cox and Rawl, Greys, Sidewinder, and HTO.   So this event is an excellent opportunity to restock those depleted tackle boxes and rig wallets for the coming months.

With so much to see and do, you can spend a whole day in the store, but it's not just about buying shiny new gear.  The team at GAC want to educate anglers too with FREE rig building workshops from the likes of George Cunningham, lure tank demos where you can try all the latest sea lures and LRF kit, fishing taster sessions, and FREE fishing lessons for kids.  There will be loads of FREE parking, clean customer toilets, refreshments on site, and the store is very accessible for wheelchair use.

So don't miss the Glasgow Angling Centre Open Weekend.  Come along and experience the truly unique atmosphere at the event where like-minded sea fisherman come together to indulge their passion and to take part in the "Biggest and Best Free Angling Show in the UK."  The GAC staff will also give you a warm welcome and help you have a great day.
