Last weekend Colin, our National sales manager and I managed to get to the Glasgow Angling Center open weekend to help promote their Airflo fly fishing tackle stock. Over the three day open weekend we met many guys in the trade, other exhibitors and plenty of great customers, which we hopefully helped them make an informed choice on their new fly lines. One thing which … Continue reading GAC Open Weekend

It’s not fishing that well by all accounts, but its worth a go. A mixture of rabbit strips in 5 different colours and some glass rattles would sure add some ‘Eat Me’ characteristics to my flies? That’s what I’m hoping anyway. With … Continue reading Fry time?
Sorry for the picture-full post!
