Angler World Berlin 2016 features the YouTube stars of Germany’s angling world
For those who have always wanted to have an exchange with German angling celebrities on how to get all kinds of fish to bite the Angler World Berlin 2016 from 25 to 27 November will be an event not to miss. As an independent event it will take place in Hall 5.2b at BOAT & FUN BERLIN. Over the three days of this event fishing enthusiasts will find everything on offer that they could possibly desire: fishing trips and fishing areas, fishing boats, kayaks, equipment, accessories, casting sport, fly casting, sonar technology and navigation. They can also take part in activities themselves, for example on the drill simulator of Armin Adam and in the Casting Area which is being supervised by Berliner Angelverein SC Borussia 1920.
AQUADEMO – Europe’s largest mobile aquarium
Measuring 14 metres in length and holding 23,000 litres of water, AQUADEMO is Europe's largest mobile aquarium and this year will be a special attraction for visitors. Fishing experts from D.A.M., Fisherman’s Partner, Svendsen Sport, WESTIN and Zanderkant will be giving live demonstrations without fishing hooks of how catfish, pike, carp and minnows react to bait.
Highlights of the Angler Forum
At this year's show the biggest attraction will be the Angler Forum. The angling celebrities there will include Armin Adam, Torsten Ahrens, Benedikt Götzfried, Sebastian Hänel, Dietmar Isaiasch, Michael Kahlstadt, Thomas Schlageter and Veit Wilde, who will offer an insight into their skills with papers and workshops.
On Saturday, 26 November 2016 fishing enthusiasts will be able to meet their YouTube heroes directly at the show at a Meet & Greet and autograph signing event. Beforehand, on the same morning, the YouTube celebrities will gather for some fishing on a lake near the exhibition grounds which will be streamed live via drones to the Angler Forum. Thus, visitors will have an opportunity at the Angler World to closely watch their idols at work.
At the Angler Forum Angel Anni and Jasmin Spingel-Petersen will be representing female fishing enthusiasts. Big L – Fishing Channel, FLYRUS, Hecht & Barsch and OderSpreeAngler will also be taking part.
