Gallery: Northern Angling Show

The Manchester crowds were wowed this weekend, but not for once by its football teams!

Instead, there was a line-up of fishing’s finest stars and manufacturers, who put on a stunning two day performance as the Trafford Centre opened its doors to anglers who had come to see, learn and listen to the best that fishing has on offer.

There was a huge amount of stalls spread over a massive hall showcasing everything from the tastiest Boilies and the comfiest of bed chairs, through to the stiffest of poles and sexiest of seat boxes so there really was something for everyone.

Plus, if that wasn’t enough you could meet stars like Dean Macey and Ali Hamidi from the brilliant ‘Big Fish Off’ TV show, match aces such as Steve Ringer, Tommy Pickering and Des Shipp, not to mention some of biggest names in the sport such as Danny Fairbrass, Rob Hughes, Alan Blair, Adam Penning and Bob Nudd all revealing secrets to packed seminars - it really was ‘ShowTime’.

See this week's Angling Times for our pick of all the latest and best gear on display.
