Get into Fishing at The Game Fair
With more and more people showing an interest in fishing, The Game Fair is working alongside the Angling Trades Association (ATA), the official voice of the UK tackle trade, launch Get Into Fishing (GIF) at The Game Fair.
This brand-new initiative will see top angling brands join forces with key organisations and celebrities to give people the chance to catch their first fish, find out what swims in our waters, learn to cast, see – and buy – all the latest tackle.
Set beside Ragley’s beautiful estate lake and covering all disciplines – game, coarse and carp, predator and sea fishing – GIF will include a range of features from fun kids’ activities to demonstrations from experts and competitions, introducing the joys of angling, to all age levels and abilities with meet and greets, Q&As with celebrity anglers and much more…
Coaches from the Canal and River Trust and experienced instructors will help you catch your first fish or cast your first fly on the lake. Visitors will be able to get up close to some of our native fish species in the Environment Agency fish tank, listen to talks in the Landing Stage theatre, watch angling demonstrations beside the lake and look over some amazing fishing boats boasting all the latest electronics.
Alongside some of the biggest brands in angling, we‘ll be welcoming Game Fair favourites including Marina Gibson, Scott Mackenzie, Hywel Morgan plus other well-known fisherfolk and celebrities.
You’ll also be able to see how angling and conservation go hand in hand and learn about a host of environmental schemes supported by angling, that help to clean up our waterways.
