Haar eerste ervaringen met demonstraties en lesgeven had Glenda als teenager op uiteenlopende forelvijvers in Noord Ierland. In 1993 verhuisde zij op 18-jarige leeftijd voor een periode van 3 jaar naar Schotland. Daar kwalificeerde zij zich bij de SANA (Scottish Anglers National Ass.) als instructeur zalm- en forelvissen. Ook wist zij zich in die periode te plaatsen in het Internationale dames vliegvisteam voor Schotland.

Sinds 1997 werkt ze als instructeur en gids aan de Blackwater Lodge Salmon Fishery in Upper Ballyduff, County Waterford.
In 2004 wist zij als eerste (en tot nu toe enige) vrouw de APGAI-Ireland Salmon qualification te behalen waarop al snel de Trout qualification in 2006 volgde. In 2006 werd ze de Emerald World Masters Ladies Salmon Distance Casting Champion.

Glenda wil het vliegvissen op een veel bredere basi promoten bij de jeugd. Het programma dat ze daar voor wil gebruiken is gebaseerd op het succesvolle Fishstart model dat ontwikkeld is aan de schotse Tweed. Dit programma wordt uitgezet op scholen en jeugdorganisaties. Ook heeft ze al een toneelstuk opgezet gericht op de basisschool waarin ze leerlingen kennis laat maken met de levenscyclus van de zalm en de ecologie van de rivier.

I was born 1958 in Wuppertal and growing up in Düsseldorf. Since 1998 I live in Hilden (next to Düsseldorf).
I´m a fisherman since my childhood, but I started flyfishing and tying at the age of 38.
Around two years later I was tying on my first big flyfishing show, the Dutch Fly Fair.
Since this time, I´m tying my flies on shows in Europe and USA.
My favorite patterns are squidflies and shrimps.

Thé Ørgänizátiøn has been very busy for quite a while with the organization of the next Fly Fair which is planned for Saturday May 9 and Sunday May 10, 2020. Many of you, both visitors and participants, will still have fond memories of the Fly Fair 2018 and together with you we want to make the Fly Fair 2020 a great or even greater success again.

Never change a winning team.The general set up of the Fly Fair event will be mostly unchanged. For the venue we have opted for "Forelvisvijvers de Berenkuil",  Berencamperweg 11, in Putten the Netherlands. This beautiful venue can be reached easily by car (A28 motorway exit 9).

At the Fly Fair every flyfisher will find whatever his life style requires. Fly casting and fly dressing material, for every kind of fish be it alver or salmon, and all the hooks and clothes one may dream of from size 36 upwards. There will be plenty of opportunities to be informed about the available industrial and technological fly fishing gadgets and to admire the amazing craftsmanship of the semi-professional fly tiers specially invited to show their handiwork.

And if you are bored with your current holiday destinations, you will be able to explore new possibilities ranging from Putten to Patagonia. Hence our motto: The World of Flyfishing.

A lot of attention is paid to the Fly Fair 2020 in our magazine "de Nederlandse Vliegvisser". This magazine is sent to more than 4,000 members and is recognized as one of the most outstanding flyfishing magazines in Europe. And as a special offer, participating firms will be offered free advertising space in the spring edition. In addition, booth keepers will be put in the spotlight in various digital means of communication such De Digitale Vliegvisser, newsletters, websites and Facebook pages.

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the Fly Fair 2020 en we hope to realize a big event for and by flyfishers. The fair will consist of a complete village of pagodas (25 m2 each) and a large light canvas hall for the fly tiers. Even if the terrain is extensive, we have to warn you in advance that the number of pagodas will be limited. In case you wish to participate, please contact Jan Huisman: huisman.jan@ziggo.nl He will send you an information package, including a reservation form.


The Dutch Fly Fair of 2018 was a big success. We're already preparing the next edition. Of course this event can’t be held without fly tiers! Like last year we hope to meet a lot of them.

On behalf of the organization I’ll be coordinating the fly tying part. Main goal is to organize an amazing event that will be interesting for fly tiers and visitors. If you have any suggestions or questions don’t hesitate to contact me by phone or e-mail: jos@homus.nl.

 

Kind Regards,

Glenda first entered the tuition field in her teens at various still-water trout fisheries in Northern Ireland. In 1993, at the age of 18 she moved to Scotland for three years, where she qualified with SANA (Scottish Anglers National Ass.) as both Salmon & Trout game angling instructor and fished in the Scottish Ladies International Fly-fishing Team.

Since 1997, she has been based at the Blackwater Lodge Salmon Fishery in Upper Ballyduff, County Waterford where she instructs and guides on the Blackwater Lodge Fishery.

In 2004, Glenda became (& indeed still is) the only female to attain the APGAI-Ireland Salmon qualification, followed by the Trout qualification in 2006

In September, 2006 she became the Emerald World Masters Ladies Salmon Distance Casting Champion. In November 2006, she added the APGAI-Ireland Trout qualification

Glenda is planning to promote fly-fishing on a much broader basis to the younger generation with a programme based on the very successful Fishstart model developed in Scotland on the Tweed. This will be taken to schools and youth organisations. She has already developed and given the first performance of a drama aimed at primary level to familiarise infants with the life cycle of the salmon and the ecology of the river system. Website: www.ireland-salmon-fishing.net
