The UK’s largest fishing tackle retailer has opened its 23rd store in England and is on track to add another to its bricks and mortar portfolio in the coming weeks.

Angling Direct unveiled its latest retail outlet on Saturday in Guildford, Surrey and revealed that its premises in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire is on track to open soon.

The latest addition occupies 6,500 sqft of display area and is said to be the first ‘destination’ store in the area. “A significant amount of lake and river fishing takes place within the surrounding area and it supports our strategy of rolling out new stores to service popular fishing destinations and angling communities,” said Darren Bailey, the company’s Chief Executive Officer.

“As we cater for all anglers across the UK with a new and modern retail offering, we will continue to strategically expand our geographical footprint, as well as enhance our online offering in terms of products, experience and education to help drive angling recruitment.”
