Watching river monsters reminds me to get down to fishing republic... Next time Stephen attends Sharesoc I'll suggest he sponsors the advertising breaks.

I think FISH management would want to see the market cap at least double its current value before they sold but you are correct that they could become a target for Angling Direct given their larger scale and the fact that such an acquisition would make them the largest UK retailer by a long stretch.I anticipated another player coming to the market and am pleased it's Angling Direct as they seem to be a quality outfit (I have purchased from them before and stock/pricing always good).Interesting times and further demonstrates these are viable businesses with a big customer base having money to spend.

Ah, your right. Thanks, I'm a client and they circulated this just after I had posted. Angling Direct – the biggest retailer of fishing products in Europe. Fishing is still one of the UK’s largest participation sports attracting approximately 4m new participants over recent years. The UK market alone is worth £3.5bn a year in direct and indirect sales. Currently the high street retail sector is highly fragmented, predominantly comprising a large number of independent retailers and very few established chains. Strong management team who see expansion of both retail outlet stores and of course on line (current revenue split is 50/50). Currently 16 stores with a target of 40 and online is doubling every year. The website (http://www.anglingdirect.co.uk/) is the 15th most visited sports website in the UK. Turnover to year just ended was £20m and the business is profitable. New monies will be growth capex and a touch of old. Market Cap post money will be c.£30m. Assuming it goes well it should be good news for FISH I think. More exposure for the sector etc. Plus a possible acquirer to boot!

This sums up the progress nicely. Fishing Republic - FY. Reported profit before tax up to £403,000 (2015: £6,000). A year of strong progress in line with Board's goal of building a significant position in the fishing tackle marketplace. Revenue up by 41% to £5,799,000 (2015: £4,124,000) - reflecting store expansion programme and organic growth. It has been another encouraging year of progress. The new funds we raised in late June 2016 helped to support the continuing development and expansion of our store network and have also enabled us to accelerate our plans to develop the Group's online platform and digital strategy, and transition online sales to our own websites, away from our historical model of third party platforms. Our store expansion is progressing very well and we have a further three stores earmarked for opening over the coming months which will take the total number of our outlets to 18. The main fishing season, which typically starts in the second quarter of the year, has begun well and we view prospects for ongoing growth very positively as we capitalise on our 'first mover' advantage.

As expected, a solid set of results and importantly expansion continues. The outlook was reported as very positive, so perhaps we might get a separate Trading Update in the not too distant future.

Good set of results. I particularly like the 16% increase in LFL sales, the move towards the companies own website away from third parties and the ongoing store opening programme. Could be the platform for a move north of 50p?

I picked up some shares in this minow (pun intended) last month, so very pleased with the recent update and today's price action. The 2 new recently opened stores and imminent opening of two more before the end of Q1 should add further to sales momentum, which may become evident by the time we get the Results in April, as we will get a further update on trading. In short, it was a confident Trading Update!

Think this stock is a disaster waiting to happen. Not sure why Gervais Williams has invested. Not impressed. Too much stock. Profitability suspect. Hobby stock in decline. Its never going to make much of a profit in my view and will probably need serious cash to get to a critical mass. Not worth £15m.

Bounced off support, promising to break 40p next week. With no newsflow so leak of better than expended year end, or current trading?

In fact its very resiliant with 36p being a strong support level for some time now.

Abarclay, it doesn't say that. One of the corporate entities could be him. Or he could hold below the threshold quoted. BTW I have no idea if he still holds but i cant imagine why he would invest and sell so soon when the company is still executing on its plans as stated at the time of the placing.

Company also lost credibility by using a name of Bill Currie, Iain McDonald and Sir Terry Leahy to ramp.Did they get his permission to use their name in RNS? What did each invest? £10,000? PISH! And why have they also got this line " Operating profit before exceptional costs of IPO 165,731" IPO wasn't in 2016?

Further to my post above (147) another thought has occurred to me on FISH. It seems Sir Terry Leahy participated in the placement at c.35p (I'm open to correction on that, but that was how I understood the various RNS). If anybody should understand sector consolidation in the retail markets and the "tanks on the lawn" school of business it is him. Since that is exactly what he did very successfully with Tesco over a period of many years, building an absolute juggernaut of a company at the expense of smaller local retailers who simply could not compete with the economies of scale generated. I realise that Tesco and FISH have obvious differences. But the principles of consolidating and taking market share remain the same. Sir Terry obviously likes what he sees here and that's good enough for me. I'm in profit already on paper, but think I'll tuck these away for a while now. GLA FC
