Fish Fest 2010 Show

Posted by Editor On March - 21 - 2010

2010 sure is turning out to be a hot year for fishing shows. Next event in your calendar should be Chapmans Angling's Fish Fest 2010. A massive three day extravaganza will see a huge array of angling gurus and celebrities represent their prospective fishing tackle manufacturers at the Chapmans Angling Hull store, from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th March.

Amongst the Fish Fest 2010 highlights are live Bait and Rig Making Demos, Q&A Sessions with angling's top stars, a Bivvy Village, the Latest 2010 Products and Bargains Galore. They'll also be a number of very special competitions available to those that attend the show - including the opportunity to fish with angling superheroes (including legend John Wilson!)

If the chance to win some once-in-a-lifetime competition prizes wasn't enough of a draw, the bargains shouldn't be missed. Check these out:

  • Wychwood Maximiser Bivvy - Half Price - Just £199.99 [1 available each day]
  • MAP Matchtek 16m Pole - Half Price - Just £799.99 [1 available each day]
  • 1 Set of 3 Greys Prodigy SX Carp Rods - Just £150.00 [only available on Friday]
  • 1 Hardy Marksman Rod worth up to £240 - Just £119.99 [only available on Saturday]
  • 1 Chub Visor 2 Man Bivvy - Save £200 - Just £149.99 [only available on Sunday]
  • Spend over £150 on any Garbolino pole and get an academy day out with Garbolino's consultants
  • plus many, many more!
