Amazing cash prize announced for this year's CLA Game Fair
One lucky visitor to this year's CLA Game Fair being held between Friday July 20 to Sunday July 22 at Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire, will net £10,000 in an amazing new fishing competition, Fish For a Fortune.
The lake at Belvoir Castle, near Grantham, will be specially stocked with bream, tench and perch for the CLA Game Fair competition. One fish will be tagged, and competitors will be given a short-time slot to try to catch the £10,000 prize fish. If no one lands the prize, all those entering the competition will be put into a draw for the cash to be presented to the winner on Sunday, 22 July.
CLA Game Fair director Andrew Crawford said, "As the world's largest celebration of country sports, fishing is absolutely at the heart of the CLA Game Fair. The event provides enthusiasts with the opportunity to see an array of fishing manufacturers and retailers from around the world, meet and learn from the experts and also to have a go at the sport.
"With so many keen anglers in the UK, it is vital we help promote the sport and give the industry the opportunity to encourage new participants. Fish For A Fortune is a fantastic new competition and is set to be a major attraction at this years event. "The bonus is that no experience is necessary to take part and the competition is open to all ages – the event could be won by an eight-year-on on the first cast."
