Fat Fish Opens

Fat Fish Tackle is exploding onto the scene in the heart of Kent by opening a new tackle shop in Canterbury. With all the major brands, excellent advice and superb customer service as standard, this 3000 square foot angling emporium is set to take angling retail to the next level, dragging it kicking and screaming into the new millennium.
The Fat Fish team are opening their doors to the public at 9am on the 16th June 2011, after which they will be open seven days a week, serving not just the anglers of Kent but everyone who wishes to see exactly how the trade should service the angler of 2011.
When asked why he created Fat Fish Tackle, Andy Reynolds said, “As a carp angler and customer for many years I couldn’t understand why this industry wasn’t offering the levels of service and modern environment expected in all other areas of retail. Why should we, as anglers, have to put up with the old ways of the typical tackle shop when the rest of the world has moved on? I pictured my ideal tackle shop; all the brands I need, top ones as well as niche ones, with good stock levels, a comfortable environment where everyone is made to feel welcome, not just the owners mates. Add to that a polite & professional team on hand with good local knowledge, a loyalty scheme to reward regular customers, out-of-hours advice and all of this builds into the most enjoyable environment for the angler. Well, here it is… welcome to Fat Fish.”
Fat Fish Tackle is holding its official opening event on Saturday 2nd July when the team will be joined by angling and Thinking Tackle stars Danny Fairbrass, Ali Hamidi and Adam Penning. All are welcome during this all-day event to meet the guys and to be inspired.
Fat Fish Tackle can be found at 4 Stour Valley Business Park, Chartham, Canterbury, Kent CT4 7HF. Alternatively, visit their website at www.fatfishtackle.co.uk.
