On both days, our fly-tying experts will show effective fly patterns to all interested kids and teenagers and will help them learn how the patterns are tied. Special fly-tying stations will be provided in the upper floor of the Barn.
Here you can tie flies to your heart's content and invent new patterns!

Listen up young fly tyers!

Following up on last years' great success, the Experience the World of Fly Fishing is sponsoring, in 2019, a Fly Tying Championship for Children and Young Adults.

All participants will tie a dry fly of their choice under the guidance of Theo Atanassov, Rainer Roth, Horst Burgstaller and Lara Schreiber during the Experience the World of Fly Fishing. An on-site jury will judge the flies.

Competition will be in two age groups:

  • Ages 12 and under
  • Ages 13 - 16

The evaluation of the flies and the subsequent awarding of the prices will take place on Sunday, 7 April at 3 pm at the fly tying table for children and teenagers. Winners who are not present at that time will be notified in writing.

The best tyers will receive certificates and special prizes.


We are most grateful to all the sponsors as well as to Theo Atanassov, Rainer Roth, Horst Burgstaller and Lara Schreiber, who organise the programme and coordinate it onsite.
