After a very successful inaugaural year the second Kilchoman UK Saltwater Flyfishing Festival will be held from 15th to 18th September, based and hosted around the historic fishing harbour of St Mawes, Cornwall.
Participants will fish from the shoreline, using the many beaches and rocky areas where sport is to be found, using your your fishing skills and watercraft. The fish being returned unhurt to the water with catch and release. A full social programme is included and there are some superb prizes on offer. Accommodation is available to suit all budgets and there will also be a ‘training’ day included in the entry price, featuring some of Cornwall’s top pro guides
Thanks to the strong support of Kilchoman, our title sponsor, the 2016 festival will feature a greater variety of training clinics. There will also be detailed local information, available only to festival participants, of the best local marks and how these vary with tide and wind conditions. .
Throughout the festival lunch will be arranged at various local pubs so everyone can get together over a drink and some food to discuss the mornings happenings.
For those that enjoy fishing from a boat, or who fancy grilling a local guide for some more knowledge, Nick Mackrory (Bassgodeeper) will be available for hire throughout the festival.
Our equipment sponsor Angling Active, will be on hand during the festival to help out with any kit issues etc. Believe it or not one of our competitors in 2015 arrived having forgotten his rod, Angling Active were able to lend him one for the duration of the festival.
