Scottish Youth Fly Fishing Team Win Gold at Grafham 2014

13 is an unlucky number for some  -  not for the Scottish Youth Fly Fishing Team.

With a man down (the team captain fell ill, on the eve of the event) they lifted the the Gold medals at Grafham water in England.

A well received Gold, congratulations to Arther (team manager) and the team.

And get well soon the captain Calum.

At Angling Active we can offer you the opportunity to try out any Rio Scandi shooting head on your own rod at our riverside location.

When choosing a fly line the process can often be a challenge as what suits one angler may not suit the other.  After trying out one, two or three different  heads at our riverside store you will be satisfied that you have made the correct choice.

All sizes are available to try by prior arrangement – to book please call the shop on 01786 430 400 or email

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!
