Offering a little bit of peace and calm this August is the Lowther Show’s Fishing Island. Surrounded by gorgeous green spaces and its tranquil river, enthusiasts will be keen to fish the waters and discover various representatives, associations, trusts and clubs from the Eden Valley, Ure and Nith as well as from other still waters.
Taking place on the Fishing Island, visitors can get involved in lots of activities including fly-tying, river walks, various fly casting competitions and family fun activities. Here you will also be able to chat with the professionals, have some fun and learn something new. Fisherman’s Row also welcomes the finest of the sport’s representatives, associations and clubs, and not forgetting plenty of retail stands selling the latest in fishing tackle and goods.
If you already fish or are thinking of taking up this fine outdoor sport, the AAPGAI will be on site and at 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 (Association of Advanced Professional Game Angling Instructors) will be there in force along with FFMUK (Italian casting style). 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 this year’s Lowther to talk about the work they do in the communities around northern England and south-west Scotland and how they can help schools and our local youth.
This year’s Fishing Island also welcomes a superb timetable of Casting Pool Demonstrations taking place on the hour across the weekend with insightful angling advice from the best in the business. Here you will also be able to have-a-go at fly casting, get involved in fly casting competitions and ask the experts with help relating to technique and winning methods.
