Bristol Angling Centre

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.

In June 2014 we open a new extension to the shop to give us more room to display the larger items like bivvies and bed chairs. The extra space came in very handy for the ever growing stock needed for the rapidly expanding internet site.

On the 7th June last year we had an open day and had a host of carp angling celebrities along for the day, it was one of the best days we have ever had in 36 years.
