Join the crowd lakeside at Haywards Farm Fishery and be part of the annual celebration of game fishing with all of the leading stars and manufacturers in the sport present to entertain and instruct you. There are free demonstrations, casting lessons and seminars, great competitions, special show deals, a hog roast and all of the latest kit to try and to buy set against a backdrop of one of the finest small stillwater trout fisheries in the UK.

There are cookery demonstrations and a hog roast to tickle the taste buds and a marquee packed with leading tackle brands to try and to buy, with experts on hand to quiz about the latest products and how to best use them.

FREE Goodie Bag
There’s a brilliant FREE** ‘goodie bag’ (limited to one per person) packed with ‘goodies’ from many of the top manufacturers for everyone who spends £25 or more in the shop in a single transaction – what better reason to buy the bits you need!
