Report Visma 2017

For the 49th time the Visma being hold from the 3th of March until the 5th of March 2017 in Rotterdam Ahoy.
So as the years before we had a nice EFFA stand with a excellent castinglane with a pool in the front. The 5 flytiers had room enough for there flyting demonstrations and giving information about their flies and flyfishing in common. So as usual we had a very tight and busy schedule.
 At the castinglane our EFFA instructors where very busy with casting demonstrations and casting instruction for the public. Especially the young ones where very enthusiasti . The casting demonstrations (single-double and switch rods as well) was given by Bas de Bruin, Rudy van Duijnhoven and Richard Verbeek. Giving casting instructions at the public would be done by all instructors so also our EFFA instructor Kees van Houwelingen and EFFA members who are certified  instructors from the Dutch Flyfishing organisation and Flyfishingclub Voorne-Putten.
The most fly tiers are members from the EFFA and/or members from the Flyfishingclub Voorne-Putten as well.
After the show the Visma organisation announced that the show had welcomed 14.000 visitors in the 3-days.
I would to thank all volunteers, instructors and fly-tiers  who had helped again to make this Visma show a great success.
Next year is the 50th university of the Visma, that promised to be a big spectacle, what my concerned than as EFFA we back again!!!
All the best and Tight Lines,
Bas de Bruin, president of EFFA Netherlands
