FATHERS will be treated to a fishing extravaganza at this year's Cabramatta Moon Festival if they attend the Australian Travelling Fishing Show.

Show presenter Michael Cooke said it would be an educational and entertaining experience, demonstrating different fishing techniques.

He said there would also be a monster truck display, which he will use to make demonstrations.

"This really is a visually spectacular attraction," he said.

"The fishing tank is a 21-metre-long, five-metre-high glass fishing pond holding 14,500 litres of water in which we have live fish, usually barramundi."

He will demonstrate to the audience different types of lures and how the fish react to them.

"The tank has the unique ability of letting people see how a lure works in the water and which lures work best in different areas and under different conditions — for example, freshwater fishing, estuary fishing and open water fishing," Mr Cooke said.

But the show isn't just targeted at people who enjoy fishing; it's also aimed at people who enjoy outdoor activities.

"Our shows include information on 4WD off-road safety, eye safety such as which glasses are best under different conditions, boat safety, knife sharpening, motor maintenance and holiday destinations."

The Australian Travelling Fishing Show and monster truck display will be on Cabramatta Road West all day at this year's Cabramatta Moon Festival, September 7.
