Flagship field sports event for the westcountry

The West of England Game Fair taking place on 19/20 March at the Bath & West Showground, Somerset is this year celebrating its twentieth anniversary. This flagship event for the Westcountry creates a platform for countryside traditions and issues to be promoted and supported. Many high profile companies have been confirmed, together with top experts in field sports providing the demonstrations and advice areas.



Graham Watkins from Gamegoer Gundog training has a wealth of experience and knowledge with Spaniels, Labradors and HPR’s. He will be joined by Dave and Lex Rayner of Woodash Gundogs based in Weston-super-Mare. Dave is a successful field trialer, having judged the cocker spaniel championships both here and abroad. Their demonstrations will include Training the rough shooters dog, choosing the right puppy and early training and hawks, dogs and ferrets in the field.

 Gundog scurry

The British Association for Shooting & Conservation (BASC) will have four gundog scurries, part of the Chudleys Scurry League with prizes supplied by Chudleys. All have slight twists to better simulate shooting scenarios and test dog and handler to the full. Mercury Vets will also be on hand to give advice.



World and European casting champion Hywel Morgan will impart his passion, enthusiasm and knowledge of fishing and fly casting. The demonstrations will show that fly fishing is for all and is very easy to pick up. Hywel will put you on the fast track of becoming a good angler. He will show you the do’s and don’ts of fly casting and demonstrate some of the common faults.

In the outdoor arena, Hywel will take you on a journey from beginner to advanced casting showing you step by step how to improve your casting and ultimately your fishing. He will demonstrate both single and double handed rods as well as show tricky casts that will enable you to catch those tricky trout.

The fishing area in the Edmund Rack Pavilion supported by Crediton based Chevron Hackles will feature a variety of companies selling fishing flies, rods, clothing and accessories, plus demonstrations and have a go fly tying. You can also have-a-go fly casting!
