Danish Fly Festival 2013

The biennial Danish Fly Festival will take place the weekend March 23rd and 24th in Kolding in southern Denmark. Want to meet there?

Every second year the Federation of Fly Fishers in Denmark arranges the Danish Fly Festival, a traditional fly-fishing and fly-tying show with tyers, casters, vendors, speakers and the whole nine yards.
The festival is a two-day event with a typical attendance of several thousand people, a good show of international fly-tyers and casters and two large halls filled with exhibitors, an indoors casting pool, tonnes of outdoors casting pools and lots of activities. This year it takes place March 23rd and 24th - and it's in Kolding, Denmark as usual.

Visitors come from Denmark mainly, but we also see Germans, Ducthmen, Swedes and people from other European countries. The speakers, tyers and casters are a broad international group with representatives from both sides of the Atlantic.

I will be there at least Saturday and maybe Sunday too although friends have been talking about fishing Sunday rather than spending time (and money) indoors.

I thought that it would be fun to arrange a get together

I thought that it would be fun to arrange a get together on the Saturday where Global FlyFisher friends could meet and maybe share a cup of coffee a beer or whatnot. Drop me a mail if you're attending the Festival and would be interested in meeting up. I'll be more than happy to bring a case of beer - or we could retreat to the cafeteria and support local business.

My suggestion would be meeting Saturday the 23rd after lunch at some point - like around 13:30 (or 1:30 PM as the 'merikans would put it) at a point right below the stairs at the entrance. I expect to be there under all circumstances if anybody wants to say hi. I'll be the one in the wheelchair wearing a GFF cap (I have a couple of those left over and we could have a raffle or something to give them away. They are a rarity these days!).

Hope to see you there.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
