THE BIG ONE SHOW is the biggest of its kind in Europe, and Angler’s Mail – No.1 for shows coverage – is on the case yet again!

The Big One is held at Hampshire’s Farnborough Five venue (sat nav GU14 6XL). And this year’s event (Saturday and Sunday, February 23 and 24)  is expected to be even bigger!

Angler’s Mail will be there, with a brilliant subscription discount offer and free gift.

Not only will you get a great price on your best fishing weekly you’ll also get the choice of TWO free gifts! A 30Plus 26″ Robo specimen net and handle or a Fox Rage Lure set – both worth over £30!

John Bailey will be on the Angler’s Mail stand all weekend so make sure you pop by and say hi!

Make sure you pop by and catch TV star of the Mr Crabtree tribute series, John Bailey. He will be on our stand all weekend.

John will be on hand to answer your burning angling questions as well as to sign copies of his book Fishing in the Footsteps of Mr Crabtree and pose for pictures.

We’ll be holding talks with John at 11am and 2:30pm for all the behind the scenes gossip on making a great fishing TV show!

Get your photo professionally taken with Koi Hodgson, our mascot, for a new special online gallery coming soon!

Plus this is your big chance to be photographed professionally as a “cover star” with our giant mascot Koi Hodgson.

This unmissable photo opportunity with Koi Hodgson (right) is being run by Mail contributor and now professional angling guide Ben Hervey-Murray, so go and say “hello” and get your picture taken.

Don’t forget to “say cheese!” And you can be in for winning one of three sets of Marukyu goodies worth £100!

Also in attendance will be a lot of the angling trade and 20,000-plus anglers. It’s a cracking event.

Below is a taster of what to expect – a video shot by Mail bloggers Carl and Alex at the 2012 event.
