Open Weekend 5th & 6th April 2014

The staff here at Angling Active would like to thank everyone who attended our 2014 open weekend on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th of April 2014.

The weekend was a massive success, with customers enjoying fly tying demo’s as well as casting tuition that was provided free by qualified SGAIC instructors.

The return of our discount lottery was very well received with many of our customers snapping up some incredible deals ranging from a humble 1/2 pint of bait to our star winner, photographed below, whose wife treated him to a top of the line Mackenzie Double Handed Fly Rod when she drew the lucky 50% discount voucher.

We hope to see you all again later this year for the Stirling International Angling Festival 2014 which will see anglers from around the world focus upon Stirling for this unique event. One that shouldn’t be missed!

Open Weekend 2014


The Angling Active Open Weekend 2014 will take place on Saturday the 5th and Sunday the 6th of April at our 7000 square foot showroom by the river Teith  in Stirling.

This date has been chosen to compliment the opening of the 2014 Scottish fishing season. Our Open Weekend is regarded by many as the perfect opportunity to stock up the essential tackle needed to make the most of the forthcoming season. Having spent the first few months of the year getting to know 2014′s newest products, our team will be on hand to offer their opinion of the latest gear and let you get your hands on the items.

Key attractions this year include the return of our popular “Discount Prize Draw” where each customer will receive a lucky discount voucher, entitling the bearer to a discount off their purchases on that day. The generous discounts will mostly range from 10% to 20% although one lucky customer will receive a lucky ticket worth a massive 50% OFF.

As usual we will have a range of experts from across the sport available over the weekend, willing to give out their time and advice free of charge as well as the opportunity to “Try Before You Buy” some of the latest tackle at our exclusive casting area on the banks of the River Teith.

Throughout the weekend you can witness fly tying demonstrations from some of the best in the game, giving you the chance to discuss the latest techniques and materials with those in the know. Our demonstrations will on at various times throughout the weekend from experts such as Euan Miller (competition Trout), Alex Wilkie (Trout and Pike), Barry Duffy (Salmon), Andrew McAdam (modern Trout), Scott Kane (Clyde Style), Dave Lindsay (Pike).

Last year saw the introduction of our free children’s fishing tuition and once again we will be offering free places to under 16 who wish to learn the basics of our fantastic sport, the short course will cover essentials like waterside safety, through to knots and fly casting. The tuition will begin at 10.30am on both the Saturday and Sunday and last for one hour. Spaces will be limited so please book in advance using the form below.

Additionally we are pleased to offer our customers one to one casting tuition, free of charge, from local SGAIC casting instructors (Scottish game anglers instructors certificate).

These bite-sized lessons will take place at our exclusive casting area on the banks of the River Teith and will be of benefit to both beginners and experienced anglers alike. Slots may be available on the day but to avoid disappointment please book a time slot using the form below.
