The full monty - motivation for the new season

Fly casting, fly tying, splitcane rodbuilding, reel manufacturing

Every year guests are thrilled by our program. After a long winter period this event is the best chance to pep you up for the new fly fishing season.

The success of the Flyfishing Startup is based on the large specialist and human competences of the actors.

All actives have proven their skills on multiple occasions. This quality will be entirely available to all participants. The good atmosphere between the actors will carry over rapidly onto the guests. This is the spirit that makes this event so unique.

We are very proud that we succeed every time to have real specialists in their domain commit to the Flyfishing Startup.

Be it flycasting instruction, fly tying, manual and masterly construction of bamboo rods or the professional manufacturing of fly reels, everywhere the participants will live light bulb moments.

You do not yet flyfish but wish to have a compact overview of the world of flyfishing? This is possible, two qualified and friendly instructors are at your disposal.

And the best is … not only watching but actively participating. This is the offering to all participants!
