From what I have seen there is virtually nothing for the angler, so I for one will not be going. Having said that, fishing is poorly represented at the Countryfile show at Blenheim and shooting not at all, so I won't be going to that one either.

The latter seems to be aimed at people whose idea of a day in the country is a visit to the local park.

Fully concur Bob - nothing like the days of old with a proper fishing village. We went last year and I think there was less than half a dozen fishing outlets. The old story of outlandish rents being charged.

We went to the game fair last year and it was a good day out, but I agree, the angling was very disappointing. Not going this time as much more awkward to get to for me. If you're interested in all country matters it still looks worth it but set your expectations low for the fishing.
