Fisherman’s Row leads from the Game Fair show arena down to the bank of the Tay and the centre of fishing activity where we welcome thousands of anglers each year. There’s lots to see and browse in 2018 including the return of the bustling ‘Fly Fishing Mall’ as well as the usual trade outlets and activities.
There will be the usual fly casting tuition, competitions and demonstrations but all with some exciting additions to showcase the sport and its environment in 2018.
Fly Fishing Mall
Introduced in 2017, the Fly Fishing Mall is home to the many fly fishing outlets. More details will be unveiled soon.
Fly Dressing Demonstrations
The increasingly popular Fly Tying Tent sees the continuation of demonstrations and opportunities for all to test their skills or to receive instruction. Tuition and encouragement will be given by Fly Dressing experts.
2018 Fly Casting Demonstrations
Daily fly casting demonstrations on the river will be run featuring a wide range of single and double handed casting techniques. A team of well-known experts will also be on hand to demonstrate on the river and in the main arena and are happy to answer your questions.
