They used to have them at Haydock around then Kev,
I've got a feeling it was Stockport way? Definitely October 2003, though.
It was one of those where you go, thinking "Oh I'll look at some new rods and classy gear" but it's all tat, seatbox attachments and buckets of feeders. And loads of blokes dressed as if they were actually going fishing, not shopping - always tickles me, that.
Dress sense is still the same at these shows, even the little kids are in camo.
