GRANTHAM Angling Centre is a one-stop shop for fishermen, supplying everything from clothing and cooking equipment to rods and bait.

The store is located in a retail unit in Bridge End Road, by the junction with London Road.

It was opened a month ago by Grantham man Mark Bellamy, who took the brave decision to turn a hobby into a business.

Fed up with having to traipse to Lincoln or Nottingham for all his specialist fishing gear, he decided to take the plunge and open up a business of his own.

Mark, 39, said: “I had to make a 70-mile round trip if I wanted any specialist gear, because there was nothing in Grantham to speak of.

“I found the location with car parking and what have you, and stuck all my eggs in one basket and thought I’d have a go at it.”

Grantham Angling Centre specialises in carp and course fishing, offering everything a customer would want.

Among the suppliers are Preston Innovations, an elite supplier with a quality reputation, and Korda, another reputable supplier.

If you are a keen fisherman, pop along to the store, in Bridge End Road, to see what it has to offer.
