Europe’s biggest tackle show – Efftex – opens its doors tomorrow with rumours of a huge announcement in the sport set to be released.
Insiders believe a world famous company – legendary for acquiring brands - may have been in the market again purchasing two UK brands.
Just last year Rapala shocked the UK scene by snapping up Dynamite Baits for £5million illustrating how attractive the home trade is seen from outside.
The Amsterdam exhibition will also showcase the very best in tackle and 100s of companies will be vying to get their name on the annual awards that cover categories such as Best Bait, Best Hard Lure, Best Fixed Spool Reel and best new Rod where Shimano, Hardy and Abu Garcia are expected to lock horns.
