This year angling is taking centre stage – quite literally – at The Game Fair, with a new and improved Fishing Village at the very heart of the event.

Whether you want to see the latest tackle, get some tips from the experts, watch the biggest names in the sport demonstrating their skills or simply cast a line (and catch a fish) then the Fishing Village is for you. Located just off Gunmakers Row®, you will find two casting pools, the location for expert demos and ‘try before you buy’.

When you’ve done in the Fishing Village, head down to the picturesque river where experts will be on hand to offer tips and advice.

The team from National Fishing Month will give you chance to catch a fish or two yourselves – perfect if you’ve never tried the sport before – while the Game Angling Instructors Association experts will teach you to cast a fly rod.

Whether a beginner or improver, there’s something for everyone.

If you’re a dab hand already then why not enter one of the competitions run by the British Fly Casting Club – there are some terrific prizes on offer.
