“For some time Fox International has wanted to run its own show, giving anglers the chance to use Fox gear to ensure their next purchase is the right one.

“The show will also give anglers the chance to mix with some of the World’s best carp anglers. All Fox UK consultants and sponsored anglers will be in attendance, offering their expert advice to help others catch more and bigger carp,” commented Steve Cole, Fox International media and publicity manager.

In 2007 Fox International ran its first ever Carp Experience day in Holland. The event was a huge success and has lead to the UK version being born. A second Dutch event will also take place later in September 2008.
