Bristol Angling Centre first opened in 1982 where the present owner Paul Dicks took over a lease on a small shop. Since then the business has steadily grown (in to one of Europes largest fishing tackle and equipment shops!). In 1984 Paul bought the shop next door and knocked the two into one giving a sales area of 2000 square feet. In 1985 HTV gave Paul the Young Business Man of the Year Award for his achievements. Three years later he built a large two storey extension on the back of the shop. In 1987 he opened an upstairs showroom giving a total sales area of 6000 square feet. Angling is a minefield for people new to the sport. Where can I go? What licence do I need? What rod do I need? What fishing – carp, pike, etc. Our staff are experienced anglers and can offer good advice regarding all these questions. We also run angling classes to help our customers catch more fish throughout the year. We have a number of celebrity anglers, such as John Wilson, who visits the shop to help customers with questions. If you would like more information about any of these events call in the shop or give us a ring. We stock a wide range of live Bait including Maggot’s, Pinkie’s, Squats, Caster’s, Worm’s, Rag Worm, Lug Worm, Peeler Crabs, and lots more..
