The South West Fly Fair returns to Roadford Lake on Sunday 26 February.

The fair is sponsored by Chevron Hackles and hosted by charity South West Lakes at Roadford Lake, 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.

Throughout the day there will be fly tying demonstrations, casting demonstrations, fly casting lessons, trout cooking demonstrations and the opportunity to find out more about angling coaching and tuition available in the region.

Trade stands will be selling new and used tackle and equipment and a bar and refreshments will be available.

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

Book in advance to avoid disappointment. Entry is £6 for adults and free for under 18s. Entry includes car parking and a raffle ticket for an all water permit worth £600. Tickets are available from www.swlakestrust.org.uk/events

For every season ticket purchased on the day South West Lakes will fund a taster session for a new entrant to fly fishing.
