• Lang’s store proves big success

    by  • January 11, 2013 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    Motre than 50% of the items in Lang’s Store’s latest posting had sold within 24 hours of appearing. Hundreds of lots were listed, included Abu reels, Abbeyt & Imbrie rods, frog harnesses, decoys, floats and books, everything on a first-come-first-served basis. The store closes on January 29, but by then I suspect most of the lots will have been sold. Lang’s has said it will not run another listing until next year. At one stage, it planned to run continuous sales but found the work involved was affecting its core business. Take a look here. Some good stuff is still available.


    Editor and publisher of Classic Angling magazine. Founder member of UK Angling Writers' Association and current chairman. Former winner of Writer of the Year. I wrote a weekly angling column for The Independent for 23 years, having previously written columns for The Guardian and Sunday Mirror. If it swims, I'll fish for it: marlin or mackerel, trout or tench, salmon or snook. I've written several books on fishing, from one for the Duke of Edinburgh's award to the notorious Catchmore Sharks (don't look at the pictures) and Bob Nudd's autobiography, How to be the World's Best Fisherman. I love exotic travel for fishing (been to Mongolia and Ecuador, the Great Barrier Reef and Arunachal Pradesh) and wish I could afford to do such trips more often. My favourite fish? Anything with fins, though I have a special love for mahseer, and I'm chairman of The Mahseer Trust.
