Ronan's report

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

The Danish Fly Festival 2015 takes place on April 11th and 12th. As usual, we expect this to be a great event with lots of great flytiers and flycaster, exhibitors and talks on flyfishing.

We've been planning this for a long time now. The festival is April, but planning and the first contacts begins slowly already in October-November. It's hard to believe how many emails are actually sent back and forth between exhibitors, caster, tiers and other participants and the FFF Denmark. We're counting in thousands just to keep it simple :-).

We already have a great line up, and we're not done publishing names yet! Please have a look at the festival website or our dedicated Facebook-page where you can find all available info and all names that are published and confirmed so far. If you can, please share the Facebook-page in your own network.

One of our regular exhibitors always end up costing me lots of money - Paul Morgan and his Coch Y Bonddu Books. I am a bit of a book collector - not that I have a huge collection by any measure, but I ther are a couple of subjects that I have a great interest in, and where I try to collect the important works.

Being an archaeologist, I have a natural (well, natural to me, anyway) interest in history, and hence also fly fishing history. For some odd reason, early on in my fly fishing career, North Country Wetflies caught my attention. Not sure why - it's hard to imagine flies more simple. I think it's their history that caught me, and for 20 years, I've been reading what I can about them - and tying them - and fishing them!

And although hardly a North Countryman, an important work is that by Jim Leisenring and Vernon (Pete) S. Hidy on the American style of wet flies and flymphs, which I just ordered in the above mentioned temple of temptations :-).

Have a great weekend!
