February 2024

The South West Fly Fair returns to Roadford Lake on Sunday 25 February. 

We will be hosting the fair at Roadford Lake, just five minutes off the A30 between Launceston and Okehampton. As well as being a highlight in the region's fly-fishing calendar, it promises to be a fun and informative family day out with plenty of activities for all ages.

The event is made possible thanks to sponsorship from Catch, Chevron Hackles, Homeleigh Garden Centres, Snowbee and Turrall. 

Throughout the day there will be fly tying and casting demonstrations, ‘have a go’ fly tying rooms, the opportunity to find out more about angling, coaching and tuition available in the region and  – new  for this year – a chance to speak to trout, sea and coarse fly fishers.

Trade stands will be selling new and used tackle and equipment and food and drink will be available at the onsite café. 

The event runs from 10am to 4pm with lots of activities on offer for the whole family including arts and crafts.  

Our Head of Angling, Ashley Bunning, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming old and new faces to Roadford Lake to showcase the wonderful angling this region has to offer to beginner and experienced fly fishers.”

Book in advance to avoid disappointment. Entry is £6 for adults and free for under 18s. Entry includes car parking and a raffle ticket.

All attendees to the event will be offered a 10% season ticket discount.
