Another Glasgow Angling Centre September Open Weekend has come and gone, and yet again, anglers flocked to our massive 30,000 sq ft store to meet the biggest names in fishing and to grab a bargain from our huge selection of special deals. It's undoubtedly the biggest free fishing show in the UK and continues to exceed everyone's expectations.
September's Open Weekend was a fishing extravaganza where anglers from all over the UK came to meet the likes of Paul Young, Ian Gordon, Mike Thrussell, Hywel Morgan, Steve Souter, Paul Little, Scott MacKenzie and Stevie Munn - to name but a few! Judging by the fantastic foot-fall and excellent feedback we received from our suppliers and customers, the weekend certainly lived up to it's reputation as the biggest and best free angling event in the UK!
The Open Weekend is synonymous with great deals and big names but there was loads to see and do over the 3 days. Ideas were exchanged and loads of customers utilised the opportunity to glean as much information from best in the sport. For example RNLI Scotland Sea Safety Unit were available to offer free lifejacket checks, Angling Charity Get Hooked on Fishing were running free taster sessions for kids and SGIAC fly casting instructors were on hand to offer fly casting tips and advice. At the fly tying benches, all the latest materials, hooks and techniques were on display giving new and experienced tiers new skills to take away.
