Demonstrations, instruction and competitions

This year’s Fishing Village includes demonstrations and instruction from some of the top AAPGAI instructors, as well as salmon and trout fishing casting competitions in which there are great trophies and prizes to be won. These are open to everyone with a separate competition for juniors.

A coarse fishing demo will also be held on the river Wye just alongside the Caradoc Estate showground. This stretch of the river flows alongside the showground and is famed for its barbel. Please feel free to chat to the anglers about all things fishing!

There are also displays by organisations working on the River Wye, such as the Wye & Usk Foundation and the Monnow Rivers Association.
