Gallery: The Big One Show 2015

The clue is in the name. The largest fishing show in Britain - The Big One - threw open its doors to an estimated 17,000 anglers at the weekend in a two-day fishing tackle extravaganza.

For many visitors this was the once-in-a-season opportunity to see all the year's new kit for themselves, attend instructional seminars, meet the stars of the angling world, as well as grabbing a bargain or two along the way at the numerous retailer stands.

Although much of the new gear on show has already graced the pages of Angling Times via our exclusive reviews, with just about every major tackle manufacturer showcasing their latest products in Farnborough, there was still lots to see.

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