I returned yesterday from Munich and had the Saturday at the EWF fly fair in Furstenfeldbruck .
Thirty minutes by train from Munich central, easy to find, it probably is the largest and best fly fair in Europe IMHO.
The fly tying standard was the best I have seen with many European tyers , the variety of international stalls and manufacturers gave it a selection I have never seen, not the 'boy in the sweet shop' more the 'boy in the sweet factory' scenario.
Coupled with a beer garden, good choice of food and good weather to boot made it a fantastic day.
Fourteen Euros entry with a free bag and programme and good translator on the casting demos inside the most beautiful grounds and halls (not main hall) of a historic abbey and coupled with a very friendly atmosphere.
Highly recommended for next year.
