Angling firm moves into Nottingham

Fishing tackle and equipment retailer Angling Direct has expanded into Nottingham with the opening of a new store.

The 4,500 sq ft Nottingham store, which was previously occupied by Majestic Wines, is in Daybrook.

Angling Direct claims the new outlet is the first fishing tackle “destination store” of its kind in the Nottingham area. It will create five full and three part-time positions.

Angling Direct’s chief executive, Darren Bailey, said: “We are very excited to have opened our Nottingham store, which is set in a very popular angling area near the river Trent. The location also offers a good number of local lakes which all cover a broad range of fishing disciplines.”
