Welcome to the Game Angling Consultancy (not the Glasgow Angling Centre)

Not to be confused with the Glasgow Angling Consultancy, we are the “One Stop Centre” for any serious Fly Angler or Fly Tyer in England. With well over three hundred rods, two hundred reels and ten and half thousand items for fly tying all out on display you know that a visit to our fly fishing tackle shop will be a great experience.
“The Game Angling Consultancy is the best specialist fly shop in the whole of the UK.” - (Sean O’Driscoll, Managing Editor of Tackle & Gun).
At the GAC Derby’s fishing mega-store our aim is to provide a solution for every fly anglers needs by providing all the major fly fishing brands under one roof backed up by some of the most expert staff currently in the fly fishing industry.
We have been appointed main agents and have “Pro Shop” status for most of the major brands in the fly fishing world. Please do not confuse us with the Glasgow Angling Centre. Our fly fishing mega-store and showroom is based in Derby, where we have unlimited parking, a warm welcome from our expert and knowledgeable staff, and facilities to cast any rod with lines ready loaded so you can try before you buy.
Our intention is to be the kind of place where any fly fisherman or women will want to come to swap ideas and information rather than just somewhere to shop. The GAC Derby’s emphasis is always on providing the very best in customer service and after-sales back up available. Ask any of our many satisfied customers and they will tell you we do have an “old fashioned” view of customer care of which we are very proud of.
Included in our fishing mega-store we have a great wader and clothing room which is proving a big hit with our customers as we stock over twenty different patterns of waders, including two full ranges of ladies waders and boots, from both Simms and Redington, plus a wide selection of wading jackets, wading boots, waterproof clothing and many other items of clothing to serve every need from our own winter climate here in the UK, up to and including every thing you may need to fly fish the Cuban Salt Flats.
Some of the brands you will find at the GAC are Hardy Grey’s, Simms, Orvis, Abel, Loop, Guideline, Temple Fork, Rio, Turrals, Fulling Mill, Veniard, UTC, Metz, Tiemco, Lamson, H20, Montana Fly, Polar, Davy Wottan, Hareline, Mossy Creek, Scierra, Snowbee, Nautilus, Wychwood, Vision, Funky, Natures Spirit, Regal, Kamasan, Partridge, Sonic and many others. We also have a HUGE range of rare furs capes, saddles and hackles which is constantly being updated and added to. We also offer to price match any lower price available*.
So if it’s a rod, a reel, tippet or that illusive piece of material for a particular fly then we will be only too pleased to help and if we do not have it in stock , we can usually obtain it you within a few days. Our product range is constantly under review and is always growing in order to provide the level of service and satisfaction demanded by both our regular customers and Tony.
