Description

Fishing
Fisherman’s Row will welcome thousands of anglers to the banks of the Tay again this year with some new and exciting features for 2019.

As well as the favourite attractions, there will be the Fly Fishing Mall dedicated to the sport and showcasing popular stalls from 2018 as well as some new outlets. The layout on Fisherman’s Row has been developed to include the Fishing Village; offering a more open outlook to the river.

Here’s what was on offer in 2018. We can’t wait to bring you more angling exhibitors to this year’s Fair.
Fly Fishing Village
Promoted by Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Magazine who have gathered top fishing traders under the one roof to provide an interesting array of products, services and promotions. The Scottish Ladies Fly Fishing Association, supported by Glenda Powell, will be in attendance, offering advice and assistance on the river and at the nearby dry casting area.
Casting Clinic
Once again, we have GAIA fly casting instructors and guides on hand who can teach you how to cast the fly or will help you iron out any existing casting problems. The Casting Clinic is located on the river, away from the crowds, and you can choose a male or female instructor using top quality ORVIS equipment
2018 Fly Casting Demonstrations
Fly Casting demonstrations on the river and in the main ring feature a wide range of casting techniques from well-known casting experts from Scotland, and Ireland
