TACKLE shows inside tackle shops themselves are becoming a growth area, as this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine reports.

Here are some bonus pictures and exclusive video links from  one such event, run by Gone Fishing UK at their impressive Canvey Island, Essex store.

Carp fans had plenty to inspect at the Gone Fishing UK show. If you missed it, it'll be back again next autumn.

Essex man Dean Macey, the popular sports star and angling personality, was one of many famous faces who turned out to talk to everyone. As was big beardy bloke Neil Wayte, all-round specialist angler and guide.

Daiwa's Bob Roberts runs the a ‘guess the four fishes’ combined weight’ contest.

.Middy had a rising young star, Ross McAuley (14) on their stand, fresh from a feature where he hauled 100 lb of Barbel for the camera on the pole.

Never too young to enjoy fishing tackle! Mind you, the bouncy castle was almost as exciting for young 'uns at Gone Fishing UK's day.

INTERVIEW VIDEOS RECORDED AT THE GONE FISHING SHOW ARE ONLINE NOW!
