Toen ik als twaalfjarige voor de eerste keer met een paar schoolvrienden ging vissen, dacht ik dat die hobby wel erg vervelend zou zijn. Ik nam dan ook een boek mee naar de waterkant om in ieder geval wat te lezen te hebben. Dat boek heb ik nooit opengemaakt, ik was gelijk gegrepen door de hobby die sportvissen heet.

Op zestienjarige leeftijd had ik in de zomerperiode genoeg vakantiegeld verdiend om mijn eerste vliegvisuitrusting te kopen bij Hengelsport Arnhem; ik was hierin geïnteresseerd geraakt door allerlei artikelen in hengelsportbladen uit binnen- en buitenland. De eerste werplessen kreeg ik van Ad van Lith die daar in de winkel stond en kort daarna wist ik mijn eerste ruisvoorntjes te landen met de vlieg. Pas echt enthousiast werd ik, nu al weer zo’n vijfendertig jaar geleden, na het volgen van een vliegwerp- en vliegbindcursus van Jos van der Wouw bij (toentertijd) Bruins Hengelsport in Boxmeer. Nadien heb ik ook van andere bekende vliegwerpers nog instructie gehad (Hans Rüdi Hebeisen, Had Verheyen, enzovoorts) en inmiddels ben ik ook zelf actief als werpinstructeur binnen de Europese organisatie EFFA (www.effa.info) die er aan werkt om het geven van vliegwerples op een hoger plan te brengen. Met Jos van der Wouw heb ik nog vaak contact en we gaan nog regelmatig samen vissen.

In 1987 haalde ik het Vestigingsdiploma Reportagefotograaf aan de Fotovakschool in Apeldoorn en ik begon in mei 1992, na ruim dertien jaar op een hoveniersbedrijf werkzaam te zijn geweest, een eigen bedrijf als reportagefotograaf en auteur. Tot het dagelijks werk behoren nu artikelen schrijven, producten fotograferen voor catalogussen en materiaalrubrieken, het illustreren van jaarverslagen, demonstraties en workshops geven op het gebied van vliegwerpen en vliegbinden, verslagen maken van beurzen, het maken van bruiloftsreportages, inclusief het verzorgen van de albums, het maken van familieportretten, het reproduceren van oude foto’s, enzovoorts. Sinds 1992 ben ik coördinator vliegvissen bij het maandblad ‘BEET-Sportvissersmagazine’ dat wordt uitgegeven door Vipmedia in Breda. Verder was ik ook een groot aantal jaren redacteur van ‘De Nederlandse Vliegvisser’, het geheel door vrijwilligers volgeschreven en samengestelde blad van de Vereniging Nederlandse Vliegvissers. Sinds begin 2014 verzorg ik ook vliegviscursussen voor de Fly Fishing Academy bij Forelvisvijvers De Kool in Heelweg.

Bij diverse bladen in binnen- en buitenland, als ook bij mij thuis, liggen uitgebreide dia- en (digitale) fotoarchieven met vele onderdelen van de sportvisserij als onderwerp. Hieruit hebben inmiddels publicaties plaats gevonden in o.a.: Fly Fishing in Salt Waters (USA), Villmarksliv (N), Hèt Visblad (NL), Voor en Door de Visser (B), Plaisir de la Peche (F), FliegenFischen (D), Flugfiske i Norden (S), Pesca Inn (I), Blinker (D), Sedge & Mayfly (I) and Fly Fishing & Fly Tying (UK).

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,

RUDY VAN DUIJNHOVEN

 

I was born January 20th, 1961 and obtained my diploma as a Freelance Photographer at the Photo Trade School in Apeldoorn (NL) in 1987 and started in May 1992, after working for thirteen years at a gardening company, my own business as a freelance photographer and author. My everyday work now consists of taking pictures of products for catalogues and magazine columns, writing articles, making recordings of shows, giving workshops on fly casting and fly tying, giving fly casting demonstrations at different shows in Europe, making recordings at weddings, etc.

It was around the age of twelve that I first went fishing with some friends from school, I brought a book along as I thought it would be very boring. I never opened the book… When I was sixteen, and after reading numerous articles on fly fishing, I bought my first fly rod and got my first casting lessons in Arnhem from Ad van Lith. One year later I followed a casting course and a fly tying course given by Jos van der Wouw for Bruins Hengelsport in Boxmeer. That was what really got me started. In the early days I used to fly fish in the waters in the area of Nijmegen, I went by train to the River Kyll where I caught my first trout on the fly. These days I will fish with the fly rod for any fish that is willing to take the fly. From roach, rudd, bream, carp, ide, sea bass, etc. in The Netherlands up to blue shark in Ireland, payara and sardinata in Venezuela, tarpon and snook on Curaçao and St. Maarten, steelhead in British Columbia, seatrout in Denmark; the possibilities are endless. One of my firm favourites is to fish streamers for pike in autumn and winter.

Since January 1992 I am the co-ordinator fly fishing of the monthly 'BEET-Sportvissersmagazine', that is brought on the market by Vipmedia in Breda (NL). At the offices of several magazines in Holland and abroad (as well as at my own address) I have situated large stocks of slides and digital pictures, with a great many topics around sport fishing as subjects. From these publications have resulted in fishing magazines in a great number of countries including Germany, the UK and the USA.

In January of 2001 I was nominated, along with two other photographers, for the 'BEET Hengelsport Promotieprijs 2001' (BEET Angling Promotion Prize 2001), this for all the pictures I have published and work I have put into BEET since 1992. At the official opening of Visma in March, it turned out that most of the readers of BEET-Sportvissersmagazine had voted for me. I have donated the cheque worth 3000 guilders that came with the Promotieprijs to the 'Stichting Vluchtelingenwerk Nederland' (organisation which looks after refugees in the Netherlands).
On the 'Eve of the Fly Fair', on Friday the 20th of September at the Postiljon Hotel in Zwolle, I was handed over the 'Hans P.C. de Groot Fly Fair Award' by Ad Swier. This for all the work I have done to promote fly fishing in the Netherlands and for the Fly Fair in particular.
