The 2020 Sportfish Show has been cancelled. The UK game fishing company took the decision after monitoring Government and Public Health England guidelines
In a statement issued this week, Sportfish said: “As developments have progressed, we have listened to the concerns of our anglers, customers, suppliers, partners, our staff, our wider friends and those in the media.
“The wellbeing of visitors, exhibitors and staff is of the utmost importance to us and we have therefore taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Sportfish Show.
“This show is the game fishing event of the year and we appreciate that the thousands of anglers who delight in attending this annual celebration will be disappointed not to be able to do so this year, but we are sure they will understand why we have taken this decision, and support it.”
The show was scheduled for May 16 and 17 at the Sportfish Gamefishing Centre, Reading, Berkshire.
The Sportfish stores at Reading and Winforton, Herefordshire, and their sister store, Farlows, in London, remain open for business, as does its online store and its telephone order store.
