Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life at the Lowther Fishing Island. As the number one relaxing outdoor pastime in the UK, we are pleased to bring a little bit of calm to this year’s Lowther Show on 13th and 14th August.
Representatives and organisations from the Eden Valley and the Rivers Annan and Nith will be there to answer any questions you may have, and to show the vast amount of excellent fishing, great scenery and availability there is in the area.
Offering something for everyone, the Association of Advanced Professional Game Angling Instructors (AAPGAI) will be attending this year’s Lowther Show bringing a variety of angling related stands, along with have-a-go activities, educational displays and entertainment. If you already fish or are thinking of taking up the sport, the AAPGAI will be on hand to offer some useful guidance for both old and new to the sport.
If you would like to improve your fly-casting and fishing skills, team AAPGAI will be there in force. Not only will they be running the fly-casting clinics for both adult and juniors, they will also be putting on regular fly-casting and fly-tying demonstrations. Alongside this, Borderlines have confirmed their attendance at Lowther to talk about the work they do in the communities around northern England and south-west Scotland to help schools and our local youth.
Taking place on the Fishing Island at the Lowther Show, visitors can get involved in lots of activities such as fly-tying, river walks, competitions and family fun activities, so make sure you come along and have chat with the professionals, have some fun and learn something new.
We are also very grateful to John Norris of Penrith for sponsoring the Fishing Island again at this year’s Lowther Show. To find out more about this year’s Fishing Island and the timetable of demonstrations click here.
