Glasgow Angling Centre
The Glasgow Angling Center is known in the fishing community as the largest retailer of fishing tackle and quality rods and reels in the country. They have a very powerful and well-established on-line store and sell to the whole of Europe, allowing them to run a changing range of special offers. Their stock is as comprehensive as you can find and the prices are hard to beat. In fact, they promise to match any lower-priced item advertised locally.

Ordered some fishing kit from the GAC Web site. Received no email confirmation. Phoned up after 5 days to find out what was happening with the order, and spoke to a rude person, who tried to blame me or my service provider for the lack of email. Will not be using again due to poor customer service.
I made an online order for some salmon fishing gear in April that were to be shipped to my address in Australia before my July trip to Scandinavia. The day after I got an email asking for some clarification, which I obviously provided. Then nothing happened and after 6 weeks I still had not received the order. After several emails and now a phone call to there offices I'm informed that the company have decided to cancel my order as they 'felt' something was wrong, however they did this without informing me. That mean that I can't get the fishing gear I need before my overseas fishing trip.
The lesson from that ... NEVER USE GLASGOW ANGLING CENTRE for overseas purchases as they might just not send it and they probably wont tell you about the decision leaving you to wait and wait for no good reason, and like in my case time may have run out and fishing trips will be spoiled.
This establishment must be by far the countrys largest fishermans cave. Full of every concievable piece of tackle an angler could want. I was instore today 26/7/09. , there are amazing products on display, items for everyone, the range includes ,what I woud class, as budget items, through to the most expensive products available to any fisherman.
I think this is a good example of what is available to the angling fraternity today, and its practically on my doorstep. Therefor, it may come as some surprise, to know that looking for one particular item, a wader bag a Simms wader bag, not the most expensive piece of fishing equipment on the market, that this item was not in stock. You may be thinking why did he not phone in advance to find out if it was in stock?. Well I did the next best thing, thinking this system is unfallible, I mean foolproof. If you go online you can search for any product on sale instore, I did exactly this and was happy to find the item IN STOCK as indicated on their online CHECK STOCK symbol. Well much to my surprise when I was in the centre looking frantically for this Simms wader bag I could not find it, I went and asked one of the assistants for some help in finding what I was looking for, and wait for it , Ionce albeit a long time ago, worked in a supermarket and trust me if a customer asked me where a particular item was I would take them to the product on display. This assistant as far as Im concerned walked by the aisle that had wader bags on display and went straight for a computer, he went online yes online to his own shop to determine if, this item was IN STOCK. Much to my surprise they had none in stock, I was told "We sold that one today" did you order one ? No I replied, I was amazed to hear that "We only buy in one at a time, you dont sell many of these you know." I couldnt believe this, it is hardly going to bust the shop I mean well under £30 I know there is a reccession but to have items on display well in excess of £600 and not stocking things for the everyday bread and butter guy beggers belief. The assistant then went on to ask would you like to order one ? No I replied, I bought an alternative item only because my sister bought me gift vouchers for this shop I won't be returning because I was not impressed by other members of staff in this shop ,I found them to be unhelpfull and to an extent unpleasant. Other customers may disagree, This a true account of my experience.
PS let this be a lesson to modern technology dont trust computers today go back to basics phone first and if in stock reserve it before its sold because when I got home and checked their website the item was still shown as IN STOCK!!!!
This was the best shop I have ever been in the shop was fantastic the managers and the staff were brilliant.the MD was one of the most kindist people I have ever met. I would advise this shop to everyone
Got a rod off these guys, it broke, they replaced it as it was a fault, the new one broke the next week..! took it back, and said it was me this time, very ignorant, will never go near them again, Customer service non existant, this store i well known about amongst anglers, for badd service...
I was recently bowled over by the new Fishing Megastore up in Possil. I had originally thought that the store in the Gallowgate was an Aladins cave for fisherman but the new store tops that. About time as the other store was getting overcrowded, if you have been before you will know what I mean. This place however, has everything at your disposal, it is easy to see and select products from rods to bedchairs. All the rods are extended making it very easy to get a feel for the item before buying. I found the staff very attentative and they dealt with my queries to a satisfactory level. I got all the stuff that i went in for and also found a few products that i did not realise were available, the choice was superb. I highly recommend a visit if just to see this milestone for fishing in Europe.
