The Scottish Fly Fair is on this Saturday and Sunday at The Stirling Court Hotel in the University of Stirling.

Organiser David Newell said expert casters are there to help even experienced fisherman improve.

Book stands, videos and talks are planned and Lothians suppliers are among the exhibitors.

David claimed: “This is the No 1 social gathering for fly fishing and fly tying enthusiasts in Scotland.

“We are full to the brim with some of the best fly fishing tackle producers, fly tying brands, fishing outfitters, professional casting demonstrations and expert fly fishing tuition.

“It is our second Scottish Fly Fair in Stirling and it is the largest collection of fly fishing and fly tying products under one roof, anywhere in Scotland.”
