A FREE dream holiday saltwater fly fishing at Casa Veijo Chac, Ascension Bay, Mexico, hosted by Paul Proctor and worth £1840, could be yours if you visit the Sportfish Reading Open Weekend over the weekend of 9th and 10th May 2015.
The hosted trip to Mexico this November, courtesy of Fly Odyssey, will be by a draw* and the lucky winner will head to Ascension Bay, widely known as the 'Grand Slam' capital of the world and there is no place better to try and tempt a bonefish, a tarpon and a permit all on the same day - the ultimate achievement in saltwater fly-fishing.
The Sportfish Reading May Show Open Weekend
This late spring celebration of angling takes place at Haywards Farm Fishery with a host of stars to entertain and instruct including: Simon Gawesworth, Scott Mackenzie, Andrew Toft, Orri Vigfússon, Paul Proctor, Jim Fearn, Pete McLeod, Jon Beer, Charles Jardine, William Daniel, Angus Campbell, Sean Leonard, Danny Parkins, Matt Boast and pike on the fly guru David Wolsoncroft-Dodds.
There are cookery demonstrations from Masterchef finalist Annie Assheton, a hog roast to tickle the taste buds and a marquee packed with leading tackle brands to try and to buy, with the experts on hand to quiz about the latest products and how to best use them. There will be some great show-only deals to be found and, if you’ve got Simms waders in need of repair, the company have lined up a FREE repair clinic on both days!
There’s a brilliant FREE ‘goodie bag’ (limited to one per person) packed with items from many of the leading brands for everyone who spends £25 or more in the shop in a single transaction – what better reason to buy the bits you need!
There’s a full programme of seminars and demonstrations throughout the weekend too, check out the full programme and the list of exhibitors attending over on the Sporfish Reading Show schedule »
And, if you think you are a decent caster, Sportfish are staging an ‘amateurs only’ Spey casting competition sponsored by Mackenzie DTX - the winner on each day will take home a Mackenzie Perflex 13’ #8 rod. Register for the Spey Casting Competition Now »
There’s FREE parking and FREE entry so head to Haywards Farm Fishery from 9am on Saturday 9th and 10am on Sunday 10th May to start your summer fishing in style and, perhaps, to finish your fishing for the year chasing bonefish and permit on the Mexican flats!
