When you are looking for a stiffer rod with a 'tippy' action for uptide fishing, one that will comfortably handle up to 8oz or 10oz lead and a decent sized bait without any problems, the Shimano Forcemaster AX Uptide Rod is a serious contender.

It can effectively lob your rig/lead beyond the scare area and is the perfect rod for beginning uptiders.
The whole point of uptiding is to anchor your bait uptide of where you are fishing and the Forcemaster AX, with it's sensitive tip section allows the rod to 'move' with the boat and doesn't break the grip lead out from the sea bed.
The Forcemaster is available in 2 models (4-8oz and 6-10z) and features a stiff butt section to cope with a wide range of situations.  Normally the Shimano Forcemaster Uptide retails for up to £89.99 but you can now get your hands on this excellent rod for only £50.00!  However we have a limited number in stock so don't miss out and grab yours today !

Insect Shield Buffs Now On Sale @ GAC!

As most anglers and shooters will know, the pleasure of being out and about on a summers evening can often be spoilt by a near invisible menace - MIDGES! But now we have a new solution from Buff that could change all that...
Nobody likes being pestered, or worse still, stung or bitten by insects which is why the boffins at Original Buff SA have invented High UV with Insect Shield BUFFĂ‚®. Based on High UV Protection Buff® (so it offers at least 93% protection from harmful UV rays) NEW Insect Shield Buff® has been impregnated with a special long lasting, effective, odourless and convenient form of insect repellent.
The treatment is effective for at least 50 washes against mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, fleas, chiggers and even Scottish midges. Insect Shield technology is a man-made version of the active ingredient found in some chrysanthemums but only the bugs will know its there - not you.

The High UV Insect Shield BUFF is a seamless, multifunctional tubular accessory ideal for many warm and hot weather activities. Made with Coolmax Extreme, High UV Insect Shield BUFF will wick moisture (sweat) away from your skin faster than any other fabric whilst offering protection from pesky insects and bugs. Designed to fit adult heads 53 - 62 cm.
USES
High UV Insect Shield BUFF can be worn as a neckerchief, headband, wristband, mask, hairband, balaclava, scarf, scrunchie, saharaine, pirate cap, beanie or bandana.

TECHNICAL FEATURES
Made with 100% Coolmax Extreme - this special four channel fibre forms a transport system that pulls moisture away from the skin to the outer layer of the fabric. It then dries that moisture faster than any other fabric and thermoregulates the body.

High UV Insect Shield BUFF weighs 38g or 1.3 oz and measures 51cm x 24.5cm or 20.1 inches x 9.6 inches - designed to fit most adults, with heads measuring 53 - 62cm.
There are no irritating seams or hems and High UV Insect Shield BUFF is machine washable and non iron.
BUFF headwear will not lose its elasticity, is colour fast and will not fade and as it is treated with Polygiene your BUFF headwear will remain fresh as the silver ions prevent the buildup of bacteria in the fabric
Treated with Insect Shield technology to give you long lasting protection from flying bugs and insects
Certified to meet Oeko-Tex Standard 100

The High UV Insect Shield BUFF is available to purchase from Glasgow Angling Centre now in a range of colours and styles - click HERE to buy now!
