English version

 

Geboren in 1948. Ik ben gaan vissen toen ik vijf jaar was en ben er nooit meer mee gestopt. Ik verdiende mijn visspulletjes door snoekvisjes (dat mocht toen nog) te verkopen aan de lokale viswinkel. Door de vlokhengel ben ik aan het vliegvissen geraakt en dat doe ik nu al zo’n 45 jaar.

Lid van de KVV (Kunst en Vliegwerk Vlaardingen) en vrijwilliger bij het VNV. Als zoveel beginnende vliegvissers ben ik gestart met stromend water vissen op de Kyll in Kyllburg. Het favoriete visland is voor mij Noorwegen zowel op zout als zoetwater.

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,

Maarten is another flyfisher born in 1948. Het started fishing at the age of five, and never regretted it. He financed his hobby by selling live bait to the local tackle store (still legal at the time). He got hooked to flyfishing by the vlokhengel(??), which has been his favorite pastime for the last 45 years or so.
Maarten is member of the flyfishing club KVV (Kunst en Vliegwerk Vlaardingen) and volunteer for the VNV. His first flyfishing expedition took him to the river Kyll in Kyllburg. Norway is his favorite destination, both for salt and sweet water fishing.
