Angling Direct lures European custom in growth plan

Angling Direct PLC (LON:ANG), the leading fishing tackle retailers in the UK tells Proactive London how from humble beginnings in Norfolk, the company now dominates the UK fishing tackle market and seeks to dominate the European and wider-yet global angling market too.
With over 30 years in the fishing trade plus their next day delivery it's easy to see why Angling Direct has become so successful and as CEO Darren Bailey explains, why their online business constitutes 55% of the business. A full UK store roll out is planned for 2019, risk-reversed by a thorough referencing of clusters where keen anglers choose to live and footfall is reportedly strong.
Further acquisitions are also on the cards after Angling Direct swallowed up Chapmans Angling for a sum of £1.40 million.
