Lineaeffe All Black 60 FS Reel is the Reel Deal

The All Black 60 FS Reel from Lineaeffe is loaded with cracking features and is a pleasure to fish with.  It sports 3 bearings to keep everything running smoothly and a freespool system for maximum bait presentation.


It comes preloaded with line, has a gear ratio of 5.2:1, comes with a spare spool and takes 160 yds of 18lb line.  The line lay is exceptional for a reel at this price point and is perfect for Pike angling on a budget.  The free spool adjustment is at the rear and can be set relatively lightly for great sensitivity.
Overall, this is a good, affordable Pike fishing reel that weighs in at approximately 450 gr.

Stillwater Tobix, Mepspin & Dropspin Lures For Less

Whether you fish for Perch, Trout or Pike, it's worthwhile having a good selection of lures to adapt to the conditions. Having different weights, colours, action in the water and designs can make a big difference.


The Stillwater range of Tobix, Dropspin and Mepspin lures are very effective variations of the the original Toby, Droppen and Mepps lures but equally as deadly.  In addition, they are very affordable and sport reliable, quality materials and treble hooks to give you the confidence when fishing for your target species.


Don't miss this excellent offer where you can now buy 3 for 2 on these superb quality lures.  Stock up now while stocks last!

Just Fish and Shoot Gift store joins Fishingmegastore!

We are proud to announce a new addition to the Glasgow Angling Centre family! The Just Fish and Shoot Gift Store is joining the Fishingmegastore group to add an extra dimension to your angling and fieldsports shopping experience!
Just Fish and Shoot are a well known name in fishing and shooting related gifts and homewares, boasting a huge range of products that appeal to anglers and shooters who, lets face it,  probably already have everything!
Established in 1996, Just Fish and Shoot started life as Just Fish, a niche gift shop in the heart of London’s Covent Garden. It was founded by Andrew and Liz Maclean to provide good quality gifts to fishermen – Liz first identified the need for such a shop when she was unable to find a suitable birthday present for Andrew. Spotting a gap in the market, Andrew and Liz built the company, offering a wide choice of fabulous fishing related items.
Over the past 20 years the business has grown and now provides a wonderful range of gifts for country lovers, fishing and shooting enthusiasts. From humorous novelty gifts, to high quality leather goods, chic homewares and glassware, the aim is to have something to appeal to all personalities and budgets. Just Fish and Shoot also carry a wide range of greeting cards to complete the gift experience.
Operating online, and now stocked in the Glasgow Angling Centre, Glasgow Field Sports and Chapmans Angling Stores, we will be able to offer amazing gifts to all regions of the UK and Worldwide via the GAC's award winning mail order service. Items will also be stocked in the recently announced Edinburgh Angling Centre which will be opening in the summer of 2016!
We will soon be adding hundreds of new products to the already huge range of gift ideas, as well as making all items available at fishingmegastore.com so you can order everything in one place. The justfishandshoot.co.uk website will remain as a gifts and homewares only store - an ideal place for non angling and shooting family and friends to browse for the perfect present without the often confusing array of 'proper' fishing gear adding any pressure!

Just Fish and Shoot have a Facebook Page and Twitter feed so you can keep abreast with the latest additions to the range - make sure you follow them so you never miss a trick!
