To be staged at the Eildon Community Centre, 2 Centre Avenue, Eildon, the festival will showcase fishing industry traders, individual exhibitors and local angling clubs alongside recreational fishing personalities holding open forums to discuss different methods, tactics and styles of fishing and providing instruction on how to catch more fish.

Families and young fishers will be given the opportunity to participate in supervised free fishing events, free tours of the nearby Snobs creek fish hatchery and enjoy free entertainment at a central staging point.
This is a free event and one not to be missed by anyone hoping to land a trout in the 2018 season.
