Henk van Bork, meester van de zalmvlieg en gespecialiseerd in de oude/antieke full dressed zalmvliegmodellen. Tientallen verhalen heeft hij geschreven over vliegbinden die ook zijn gepubliceerd in de diverse vliegvisbladen en niet alleen over het binden van zalmvliegen maar ook de historie en geschiedenis over dit fenomeen en artikelen voor de beginnende vliegbinder. Allerlei bindpatronen, veelal duidelijk uitgelegd d.m.v. tekst en illustraties met de nodige extra bindtips en handigheidjes, om stap voor stap een kunstvlieg te bouwen.

Bekend zijn de vliegbindrubrieken in de Nederlandse Vliegvisser waar hij al zo’n 25 jaar in de redactie meewerkt, van het begin (een gestencild A-5je) tot wat er nu in full color in de bus valt.

 

He is specializes in the craft of the old/antique full dressed salmon flies. Henk wrote many stories and articles on fly tying on this subject for as many different magazines.

He didn’t just write about ‘how to’ tie these beautifull flies, but also informed the readership on the unique history or background of various salmon flies. Henk also wrote quite a number of articles with the starting flytyers at mind. He informed his ‘pupils’ not only on the basics of tying these flies, but where necessary he gave extra tips and tricks of the trade or illustrated in clear drawings how to tie these flies ‘step by step’.

Henks is well known for his flytying features in that gorgeous flyfishing magazine De Nederlandse Vliegvisser (The Dutch Flyfisherman), in which he was in the board of editors for over more than twenty years.

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,
