I had to say yes as he offered to pay the beer and let me tie flies ... so packing now to drive south again to see a gazillion Swedes pushing through the isles of the big Angling Fair. I have done this show before and the numbers of people are staggering. It´s a lot of fun and the Swedes are very kind people too.
I let you know what has happened in Sweden soon :-)
Sportfiskemässan (Angling Fair) is the largest fair in Sweden for angling. Here you meet people with common interests to watch the news, try activities, compete, watch boats and book trips. The fair has strong partners in businesses, organizations and schools. Furthermore, the fair has ambitions to increase interest in sport fishing and promote fish conservation.
The fair has grown over the years in terms of both exhibitors and visitors (over 14.000 per year) and is angling industry's major annual event / industry gathering where "everyone" is coming!
