The Danish Fly Festival 1997, Program

Main page
FFF Denmark has arranged for this succesful show to take place once more in Kolding, Jutland.

The festival will open saturday the 3rd of May and end sunday the 4th. Saturday the show will start at 10 AM and last until 5 PM. The sunday opening hours are 10-6. During this time there will be lots of options, lots of tyers to see, lots of things to buy, lots of rods to test.

The show features tyers from Denmark, many European countries and the U.S. There is also a large section of commercial booths with representation from most Danish tackle dealers and distributors plus a few foreign ones.

There will of course be book signing, talks, slide shows, demonstrations and the usual plethora of activities -- all for your pleasure...

Among the Danish tyers will be: Meet the gang
A lot of online fly fishers will attend the show as guests or performers. I myself am on the list of tyers, as are other well known tyers from the online FF society. There will be an official meeting among us, and if you want to join us you are welcome. The time and date hasn't been set yet.

There will be one place for the online fisher to go though, and that will be a booth dedicated to FF on the Internet. I will be in this booth a lot of the time during the show, and it will make a natural place for online acquaintances to meet in 'real life'. We will have at least two pc's online and there will also be a fly tying table.

We hope to be able to publish a web page on-the-fly during the show, so that people unable to take part will have a chance to join the party with the rest of us - virtually that is.
