Yes, a lot of very low-end of market tackle offers, that damned bloke on the mic selling off his dragon rubbish stuff, a handful of decent stalls selling a good range at decent prices. Bargains can be found, depends on what you are looking for and willing to pay. Some years the terminal tackle is a bit rubbish, last year I thought it had improved. Still too much carp orientation for me but still worth a rummage around I'll be there.

You also have to pay 5 or 6 quid to get in just to look at the dragon rubbish,no thanks not for me.

Went last year and can safely say I would rather put red hot pokers in my eye's than return.... I would personally support the local tackle shops and save the entry fee

I would go to these shows not looking for a bargain but more to see what new gear companies where looking to release and getting to try / test the gear. (Not sure which companies will be at this show). If you manage to grab a bargain then great but if you go expecting a bargain you may well be disappointed.

You could offer the discounted tickets to me and i still wouldnt go,if you buy cheap rubbish means you buy twice coz it will drop to bits after using it the 1st time,stay well clear and buy the best you can afford.
