Glasgow Angling Centre September 2017 Open Weekend Coming Soon!

It’s almost the end of another great summer of fishing and that can only mean one thing to the avid angler – the Glasgow Angling Centre 2017 Autumn Open Weekend is just around the corner!

Meet the Stars of Fishing
This year Scotland’s largest FREE angling event will be held from September 29th until October 1st, 2017, and this one is set to be the best yet! The team will be making a number of improvements to the format this year, but all your favourite bits of the show will be retained. Every major tackle brand in the industry will be in attendance with their latest products on show and experts will be on hand to talk you through the latest developments in every aspect of fishing. There will be FREE fishing tuition available for all types of angling, from fly casting lessons and coarse fish taster session for kids, to slide shows and rig building workshops. Whatever your preferred style of fishing, there’s something for everyone.

If you are passionate about fishing or the great outdoors, you really don’t want to miss our Autumn event. Dedicated anglers travel to Glasgow from all over the UK and even abroad - and it is easy to see why. There is more to see and do for the keen fisherman than any other angling show in the UK. With almost 30 years in the trade, GAC know exactly what anglers want to see and that’s why we have hundreds of rods and reels set up and on display, for you to touch and try. You can have a go with any fly rod you like on our bespoke casting pool or nearby canal basin if you want to try a salmon fly rod. This is by far the best way to make sure you have chosen the best tool for your needs, be it from Greys, Orvis, Guideline, Wychwood, Scott, Hardy, Vision, Winston, Loop, Sage or any one of the dozens of top brands in stock.

Don't Miss It!
We also have the UK’s biggest range of angling apparel and waders. The walls of our clothing section are jam packed from floor to ceiling with jackets, trousers and waders from Simms, Patagonia, Hodgman, Scierra, Airflo, Vass and much more. We have a huge selection of fishing flies, from every major supplier in the trade. Chose from the likes of Fulling Mill, Fario Fly, Atlantic Flies, Craig Barr, Dragon and Caledonian Flies. So our Autumn event gives you the perfect opportunity to restock those depleted fly boxes with winter patterns for the coming months. We also have a massive range of fly tying gear which takes up a significant portion of the store and our comprehensive Sea and Coarse fishing departments are bulging with goodies from all the best-known brands. Alternatively, if lure fishing is your thing then GAC has more fishing lures in stock and on display than any tackle shop in Europe and has become a Mecca for keen predator anglers in recent years for this very reason. Chose from all the latest and greatest from Savage Gear, Westin, Rapala, Salmo and more.

Loads to See and Do at the Open Weekend


With so much on offer, you can easily spend a whole day in the store, but it is not just about buying shiny new gear. September 2017's event is more focused on you, the angler, learning more and getting more from your equipment. That's why during this event we will have more free tuition, demonstrations and workshops so you are equipped with all the latest knowledge for your next fishing trip.

Guaranteed to be a great day out
Things you can expect include FREE rig building and bait preparation workshops, casting tuition, fly tying demonstrations, lure tank demos, kids activities and fishing taster sessions with Get Hooked on Fishing, fly casting demos and we've brought in the best guys from around the world to show you how!

Meet loads of like minded anglers
With easy FREE parking for 100’s of cars, toilets, seating, on-site catering and refreshments so you can take your time - there’s just so much to see and do at this event! If you shoot as well as fish, then don’t forget that the Glasgow Field Sports store is also located inside GAC, with hunting and shooting equipment and country clothing from top brands like Harkila, Seeland, Jack Pyke, Swarovski and much more, plus a well-stocked gunroom with over 500 new and used Airguns, Shotguns and Rifles for all your hunting and shooting needs. Clyde Outboard services will be attending, with a range of outboard motors and boats plus special offers on repairs and servicing for boat owners.

Free tuition for kids
For the art lovers, we will have John Edwards from Fish Recreations, who will be displaying his amazing fish replicas and explaining how he turns your catch into a work of art after you have released it. Maria Gonzalez from Mayfly Art will be displaying her popular range of fish prints and fine gifts featuring her amazing artwork! The team from Bauer Media, the name behind some great magazine titles like Trout and Salmon, Trout fisherman, Sea Angler and AnglingTimes will be instore with an amazing offer for anyone who takes a subscription out to their favourite magazines on the day, plus you can meet and chat with the editorial staff of your favourite fishing title!

Learn loads of new tips and tricks from the experts
Other key highlights over the weekend: our famous 'fly tyers row' will be busy as ever with the best fly tiers in the UK, showcasing all the latest materials and techniques, the Rangers from Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park will be onsite, informing and educating on the fishing and other outdoor activities that are available in the 720 square miles of the park which is less than an hour’s drive away for more than half of Scotland’s population! You can also visit the SGAIC instructor team, who will be providing free fly casting lessons to anglers of all ages and abilities for the entire weekend plus a chance to learn how to tie your own flies! The world’s finest fly-casters and instructors, including Hywel Morgan, Scott MacKenzie, Ian Gordon, Jim Curry, Andrew Toft, Jim Fearne and Stevie Munn will be on hand to help you improve your technique and get the most from your tackle! What better way to choose a new rod than under the watchful eye of a qualified instructor or fly rod designer?

OPEN WEEKEND OFFERS


On top of all the exceptional weekend-only super deals on offer, GAC will give you back £5 in the form of a gift voucher for every £50 spent in-store.  And on top of all that, if you register your attendance you will receive a FREE golden ticket in your email.

GETTING THERE


Just a couple of minutes drive from Glasgow’s M8 motorway, you will easily find the huge store.  It's an angler’s paradise with its own spacious car park and more than 50 trained, knowledgeable staff, eager to help you tackle your angling problems, whatever your interest may be. The store is the nearest thing you will ever get to a fishing tackle Aladdin’s cave, boasting a mind-boggling 40,000 different products on display. It is one rare opportunity where you can see and touch rods, reels and equipment you might want to buy and fish with, all under one roof.


Loads of Free Parking
There are refreshments on site, so you can enjoy a coffee and a bite to eat. Most tackle-shops can't offer their customers the same level of service as the GAC. Not only does it stock the single-largest range of tackle and clothing in Europe, but there is ample space in which customers can try before they buy.
The store is just two minutes drive from Glasgow's M8 motorway and is easily found. It also has its own large car park. Inside you can hold and compare tackle under one high ceiling. There are more than 1,500 rods on display, and you are welcome to get them off the racks and try them out on the 30m casting pool or the neighbouring canal basin. The same goes for the hundreds of reels and fly-lines. If you are an armchair angler you can pick up the latest books, DVDs and catalogues.

In the last couple of years GAC has hosted some memorable Open Weekends, with the last one in March 2017 being the biggest and best attended yet breaking all records and attracting over 2000 anglers from all over the country. We anticipate another fantastically attended event this Autumn so don't miss out.  Get yourself along to the September 2017 Open Weekend, indulge yourself and join us for Scotland's Biggest Free Angling Event.

New Hardy Fly Fishing Gear for 2018 - Special Preview!

We always look forward to those first glimpses at the new fishing gear from Hardy at this time of year and once again the new additions for next years range will blow you away!
2018 will be the year that you will see the first ever carbon hybrid fly reel from Hardy, the use of the game changing SINTRIX material in every single hardy rod on the market - not just at the top end - and a great new lower price point in rods. Plus a comeback from some of the favourite Hardy names of the past like ultralite and Demon rods and the Cascapedia reels and a complete new range of fly lines!
It's going to be a big year for Hardy and you can see, try and buy almost all of the new stuff for the very first time at the Glasgow Angling Centre Open Weekend Event on the last weekend of September 2017, plus you can meet with and chat to the guys who helped design and develop it who can answer all of your questions! But first let us introduce you to some of the new gear...
Hardy Ultralite MTX Fly Reel

This strong, light and stunning reel features a powerful carbon fibre drag system with a 340 degree colour coded regulator, captive spool release and high line capacity. As soon as we held this reel in our hand we knew Hardy were onto a winner with this one and we were surprised at the price tag - much less than expected for such a high performance piece of kit!

The full barstock frame and spool of the Hardy SDSL reel is also lightweight enough for long days on the water and features a stunning silver and blue colour scheme and captive spool release system. There hasn't been a Hardy saltwater fly reel as impressive as this since the bestselling Zane series - and we fully expect the Hardy SDSL to outsell all of it's predecessors!
