Another highlight of the 18th EWF is the special show “Art and Craft in Fly Fishing”. The Experience the World of Fly Fishing has nine artists as guests who will introduce us to their handicrafts on both days of the EWF and give interested visitors an exciting insight into their work.
Take the opportunity to get to know the artists and their work. You will find their special show stands distributed throughout the halls of the EWF.
1. Theo van de Poll – Twisting of Leaders
Theo van de Poll has been a fly-fisher for forty years and is now in charge of the fly-fishing school of the Dutch Federation of Fly-Fishers (VNV). In addition, he can often be found at fly-fishing shows in the Benelux where he demonstrates how to make furled leaders. These leaders can be made of different materials such as nylon, fluorocarbon and Uni-Thread; each of these materials has its own characteristics. It is important that the butt of the leader is thick enough, at least 60% of the point of the fly-line, so that the energy of the cast can be transferred to the leader.
2. Anatol Donkan – Fish Leather & Design
In years of research, Anatol Donkan has perfected and further developed the tanning process of his ancestors. The fish leather tanning he developed produces a high-quality, soft leather. In the process, he works by hand. He holds each skin in my hands and sees what the fish has experienced. Exclusive salmon and sturgeon leather made by Anatol Donkan is available from him – as are his many unique fish leather designs, bags, belts, bracelets and other accessories.
