Sportfish was once again unable stage the UK‘s greatest game fishing show ‘in the flesh‘. Instead, this year, we beamed the event straight to your home!
We offered live events, fishing and demonstrations direct from the Sportfish Game Fishing Centre, interactive celebrity sessions, fly tying exhibitions, tackle clinics, entomology, competitions, special offers and much more. It truly was the Sportfish Show that all game fishers know and love – but safe, socially–distanced and online!
