PAC Convention traders latest

You might think we'd struggle to attract the usual number of traders what with all the recession doom and gloom.

But the latest word from organiser Colin Goodge is we've got nearly 30 large and small attending this year's show at Kettering, on October 1.

That means there'll be a hall full of tackle to browse and stock up on all those essential bits and pieces for the season ahead - along with stacks of books and other pike-related stuff.

Fox are bringing along a large tank, so you can try out their lures and see their action before you buy. And we're not sure if they're trying to tell us something about the kind of weather we can expect this winter, but we've also got an ice fishing guide coming over from Canada.

So far, the list looks a bit like this...

Fox International, Vale Royal Angling, the Tackle Shop (Gainsborough), Zoota Lures, Franglais Fishing, Dave Garner (lures), Dave Lumb Specialist Tackle, Baitbox, Pikepro, Eddie Turner, Coch-y-Bonddhu (books), Derrick Amies (book), Karen Sarkar (art), Zandervan, Chico's Lures, the Pike Shop, Dave Smith Ultralures, Esox on Ice, Bob Buteaux, Fenland Pike (book), Graham Booth (book), Mick Brown (book), David Miller Art and Catfish Pro.

Don't forget we'll also have the second-hand tackle and lure stalls - if you've got a few jerkbaits too many or a couple of old rods you no longer use, why not bring 'em along to flog.
