Glasgow Angling Centre's aim has always been to be a one stop shop for all anglers offering a vast range of tackle, for every aspect of angling, not just specialising in one discipline like many of its competitors. This is reflected in the staff at GAC. In the last 12-months staff have stalked wild trout in highland streams, chased tarpon in Florida, heaved up huge halibut in Norway and battled carp in France. GAC have extremely experienced staff, anglers to give the best advice to anglers. They pride themselves on their vast knowledge of all aspects of angling, and their enviable customer service levels.

They also have 4 members of staff who have proudly represented Scotland internationally in Fly Fishing and Coarse Angling. In addition 3 fully qualified instructors and coaches, therefore, if you need any advice GAC always has someone with the necessary skills and experience to help.

Company description
The Glasgow Angling Centre story begins over 21 years ago in the famous Barrowland Market in Glasgow.

The Managing Director and owner Paul Devlin started with a small market stall in the Barras selling mostly second hand tackle but quickly progressed, due to demand, to a larger market stall.

The first shop opened in the village of Cumbernauld, on the outskirts of Glasgow, which is still open to this day and is as welcoming as when it first opened.

As the shop was quite small every inch of space was taken up with as much choice as possible. It soon became the Mecca for anglers from all over the central belt of Scotland and beyond. The first shop was often described as an Aladdin's cave of fishing tackle. The business now employs over 90 full time staff. In addition to the main Glasgow Angling store, Glasgow Field Sports and PD Fishing Tackle & Guns the group also owns the coarse and carp specialists Chapman's Angling in both Scunthorpe and Hull.
