Welsh Game Fair in September
« on: July 13, 2022, 10:18:36 am »
Former world and European fly casting champion Hywel Morgan says the first GWCT Welsh Game Fair in September will provide a platform to showcase fishing in Wales to an international audience.

The GWCT Welsh Game Fair will be held at the Vaynol Estate, near Bangor from September 9-11 and Hywel says the setting, with a large lake in front of the iconic mansion, could not be better for fishing.

Hywel, from Pontrhydfendigaid, near Aberystwyth, is baffled why thousands of anglers drive through Wales every year to catch a ferry to go fishing in Ireland when his homeland has some of the best wild brown trout rivers and lakes in the UK.

?I am keen to ensure that there is a really good fishing presence at GWCT Welsh Game Fair to promote the availability of angling in Wales,? he said. ?For some reason, most anglers travel through Wales to go fishing in Ireland.

?It?s about time the people of Wales started shouting about what we have here. The GWCT Welsh Game Fair is an ideal opportunity for us to inform and educate people.

?We probably have some of the best rivers and remote lakes for wild brown trout fishing in the whole of the UK.?

In partnership with The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT), the GWCT Welsh Game Fair ? www.welshgamefair.org ? is being organised by Stable Events Ltd, which also organises The Game Fair in Warwickshire and The GWCT Scottish Game Fair in Perthshire,
