Blog, news and reviews from Snowdonia Fly Fishing Guides
Having joined the throngs of traffic on Friday I crept, stop start up the A55, M56 and M6 to get to Lowther in readiness for the show.
Saturday was brilliant - hot, sunny and incredibly busy. The whole team didn't stop all day. As the crowds left we were able to relax, chat about the day, throw a few fly lines and try out some different tackle before heading off to the pub for a well deserved beer (or 2).
Sunday was wet but mild and calm. The rain was not as bad as forecast and whilst it was not so busy and a slow start we were still kept on our toes all day. No matter the weather it was a great show and I hope a successful one for the traders, stall holders and organisers.
I was encouraged to see so many people of all ages having a go at casting a fly line. If just a few take up this brilliant sport our time and effort was not in vain.
