Reel treat in store for anglers at British Carp and Angling Show

ALL the biggest names in fishing are lined up for this weekend’s inaugural British Carp and Angling Show at the Royal Norfolk Showground.

The show takes place over Saturday January 21 and Sunday January 22, and will play host to angling legends John Wilson and Rob Maylin and huge manufacturer names including Korda and Guru.

The 50,000 sq ft exhibition hall will be filled with fishing tackle, bait, equipment, apparel, accessories, demonstrations and freebies, catering not just for carp anglers but also for coarse anglers, fly and sea fisherman.

The show offers everything, from well-known company’s product launches, to angling celebrities and experts on hand with their tips and advice.

Key retailers and bait companies Carp Zone, Fishing Republic, Advanced Technology Tackle, I-Carp, Peg One and Bait Zone will all be there, and top angler Matt Hayes be promoting his new clothing range as well as helping with all your angling queries.

Rob Maylin will unveil his sixth book ‘Big Carp Legends’ and sign copies for fans, and top angling magazines including Total Carp will also be on hand.

The show is not only a great opportunity to acquire new skills and mingle with anglers, but with so many trade stands attending, the show is also a great chance to stock up on reduced rate essentials.

Find everything you require for your next fishing trip – including baits ranging from boilies and liquids, to maggots and pellets.

Many companies will be showcasing new products, offering special discounted prices and sampling freebies to use on your next angling adventure.

For the keen young anglers, Norfolk Anglers Conservation Association will be offering children free coaching sessions all weekend; here they can develop their casting technique or learn the importance of fishery conservation.

Placed in the delightfully rural setting of Norfolk, the Royal Norfolk Showground is a hub surrounded by lakes, rivers and an enormous coastline – perfect for indulging your passion for angling!
