Jay Lee organised the event for the fifth time. He also held a small lottery with gifts sponsored by, among others, Finest Fly Fishing, Fly Supply, Elberse International, Wout van Leeuwen, Gin Clear Media, Eifel Kyll Lodge, Q-Fly Shop, Focus & Charge, Handy Fish, Zpey and Slo-Fly.
The whole event took a little over two hours and was visited by only as little as 30 to 40 fly/fishers from all over The Netherlands, unfortunately.
After the event there was still time for a refreshing drink and chats between visitors and sponsors of the event.
The visitors all greatly enjoyed themselves as there was something there for everyone, trout and salmon fly-fishing, freshwater and saltwater fly-fishing.
