I'm not sure why the kids' entertainment unless it's to keep them occupied when you watch the live tutorials :)

hope they have more stock than currently on their website as many brands and even items like reels have apparently disappeared contrasted to even early this year sadly.

The stock levels in the 2 stores nearest to me is not very good either.
Maybe they are waiting for fresh stock after the sales they have kept having.

More than 1,000,000 items in stock,must be selling maggots in singles now :LOL:
Is that the old Castaway premises ? I went there once years ago as I was on the same estate for something else.

The rotherham branch and the barnsley one mate.
The rotheham one was the worst though.
I don't know where the stock is but it's not in the shops.

Just as a matter of interest do you folks think Fishing Republic is loosing out to Angling Direct? I have only once been in an FR shop and I remember clearly the staff giving the impression that I was a bl**dy nuisance even though there was hardly anybody else in. My few experiences with AD have been positive especially at the Preston branch, Ted Carter as was.

The preston stand was sparce,the guru stand had some hooks and other stuff not stocked , the middy stand was ok.They do not stock drennan anymore so that stand was missing.
There was a fella in when i was and asked about 4 items and they had none of them and said if he went on line they "might " have some in stock.
It might have improved since i was in.
That was the rotherham branch.
