The Saturday started a lot more busy in the fishing section at the Hohe Jagd und Fischerei compared with the previous two days, which is normal for a show like this. This coming week is a holiday week in Austria, the Salzburg area is a popular destination, so getting to the show could be a bit troublesome.
