CLA Game Fair

July 28, 2014

From the 18 - 20 July Clonanav Fly Fishing attended our first CLA game fair.  This was our first time attending such a large show and we had a large range of products on display from top brands including Sage, Simms, Rio, Patagoina, Hardy, Greys and much more.  Our stand was a joint venture with Fortwilliam fishery on the Blackwater.  We had a lot of interest over the weekend, however the general feeling was that numbers of game anglers at the show were much lower than previous years. It was great to meet so many old customers who had been to fishing with us in Clonanav over the years, I met some customers who had been with us over 20 years ago.... and they promised to return.  Great to see so many old customers again. The CLA is quite a spectacle for the outdoor enthusiast and it was great to see the Spey casting competition which was won by James Chalmers.  Hardy & Greys also had a hugely impressive stand at the show and their support over the weekend was amazing. Each day I also gave a casting demo on simplified casting on the casting pool each day.  The demos were well attended and it was a pleasure to demonstrate in front of such a large receptive audience.
