Record attendance at EWF 2007
On April 21st and 22nd, 2007, the second Experience the World of Fly-fishing took place at Castle Pertenstein near Chiemsee.
With sunny weather and a great setting, many fly-fishing enthusiasts were welcomed and entertained. It was a remarkable success which emphasized the EWF as the fly-fishing highlight in Europe’s German-speaking region.
Thirty-eight exhibitors and importers presented 60 brands. Celebrities, internationally well-known fly-tiers, and casting instructors were present. Sixteen lectures were offered each day to enhance the agenda. It was a perfect setting for a chat or to exchange tips and experience. The exhibitors provided up-to-date information and professional advice and presented new products.
Items that were new on the agenda for 2007, such as fly-tying for children, the info center for women by Kate Blubaugh and Heinz Lorenz’ program for beginners, were enthusiastically received by the visitors.
The Marstall building, the castle, and the surroundings created a unique atmosphere. The 24 meter casting pool allowed demonstrations of a variety of casting styles and tricks. The fly-tiers were tireless in answering questions from interested people and in explaining tying techniques.
In summary, the 2007 EWF was a very special weekend for fly-fishers from near and far.
We look forward to seeing you at future EWFs!
