“This is the first Carp and Coarse Spectacular Show at the Ricoh Arena and we have pulled out all the stops to make it bigger and better than ever,” he said.
“The event is packed with the cream of angling’s manufacturers and retailers and as well as being able to hear stars from the angling and carp worlds give talks, there is the opportunity to win two holidays.
“We are delighted Bob Nudd who is a legend in the sport will be on hand to talk to visitors, which is sure to be one of the highlights.
“There will also be books, holidays, photography, fisheries and fishery management as we cover the whole angling world.
“Whether you have a massive interest in the sport or want to find out a bit more, there is plenty to keep everyone interested – this is the biggest event in carp and coarse fishing and its free!”
Paul Dowling, event manager at the Ricoh Arena said it was the first time the venue had staged an angling show.
“We are expecting this to be a great family day out because angling is a sport which can be enjoyed whatever your age,” he said.
“Holding the Carp and Coarse Spectacular Show highlights the versatility of our exhibition facilities as well as the reputation we have built over the last six years for holding niche UK-wide shows such as this.”
