So I went to check out the new “Glasgow Angling Centre” down in port dundas today. Now, everyone knows I moan about the original GAC being too big and being like a fishing stuff tesco but the new shop….
makes the old shop look like a cosy corner shop by comparison. It is like going into a cash n carry superstore……it even has a little place with tables where you can sit down after a strenuous time browsing the Hardy rods…or possibly to leave the old ball n chain if she goes with you….no cafe however, it has some vending machines thank goodness ………real men vend!!!!!
Anyway, as much as I slag the place off I have to grudgingly say that it has got a fantastic range of fly tying materials and fishing stuff in general. So I stood for a while waving a Hardy rod about trying to look casual ….the old ball n chain was with me as well and insisted on embaressing me any time someone walked by…
#walk past bivy tents#
“those tenty things…..do you sit in one of them?”
#looking at fly tying materials#
“whats that stuff for…..do you actually know how to use that?”
“OOoohhhhhh look at that sparkly stuff…you could make some nice flies out of that”
– people titter all around
Im still dreading the day I am paying by switch and someone says” oh your the bloke with the website…..bugger off out our shop ya bam!!”
I did treat myself to a fair amount of fly tying materials as well as a nice Grizzly Neck..
…….which I will be using the next few days to tie up some of those usd duns!!
Oh as a side note, you may have noticed that the photo gallery is gone. That is because I am putting a new one in place so at some point you may find all the photos on the blog disapear……well some of them anyway…just for a day or so!!
