Many of these companies are choosing to only exhibit at our carp show; Aqua products and Nash Tackle being just a two examples. On view will be the latest baits, gadgets, end tackle, rods, shelters and holidays from Canada to Europe and beyond.





We also have a number of syndicates exhibiting for the first time, one which holds 45 English 30lb+ fish and is holding an open day for show visitors as it’s only 20 minutes away!!


We also have some of the biggest retailers in the country on hand with bigger stands than ever before, so hopefully you will be able to buy anything you crave, at a show stopping price.
