Get to grips with fly fishing at the Northern Ireland Game Fair

Some of the best angling instructors in Ireland will be on hand to give visitors to the BASC Northern Ireland Game Fair some top tips this May.

The Association of Professional Game Angling Instructors (APGAI) Ireland have agreed to get involved with the game fair at Ballywalter Park in County Down on 2-3 May.

APGAI will be running a series of workshops on fly-tying, material and tools, entomology (fly and bug life), tackle and knots, fish life cycle and pike fishing.  There will also be fly and bait casting clinics and a well-stocked fishing merchandise pavilion.

BASC Northern Ireland’s Amanda McCallion said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to take up fly fishing or improve their game angling and fly-casting skills. There will also be various distance and accuracy competitions for those keen to demonstrate their skills and win a top prize.“
