The week long holiday in the south of the Netherlands made that the Friday of the Rotterdam angling show was rather well visited, also by children. A lot of youngsters took the chance to also learn how to tie a fly and how to cast with a fly-rod. The Visma lasts until Sunday the 5th of March.

 

From ten o'clock in the morning until six in the afternoon (until five over the weekend) people visiting the Visma could watch demonstrations, take profit of bargains, participate in lotteries and competitions etc.
