Angler World Berlin features everything from fly casting to sonar fishing
With a total of 50 exhibitors from Germany and abroad the Angler World Berlin has established itself as the largest meeting place at a trade fair of fishing enthusiasts with sporting ambitions as well as hobbyists from the Berlin/Brandenburg region. From 25 to 27 November a display area covering 3,500 square metres in Hall 5.2b will reflect the growing popularity of this sport. Big-name brands will be represented, as well as retailers, tour operators, social networks and clubs. At the Angler Forum and AQUADEMO specialists will have useful tips and information on every facet of this sport.
The number of exhibitors who have registered for this year’s fair is far higher than in previous years. They include international companies from Denmark, the Netherlands, Austria and the Czech Republic. SPRO, WFT, WESTIN and Zanderkant are among the brand-name manufacturers who will be presenting the season’s latest trends and products for the New Year. Visitors who have long wanted to not only inspect products and have them explained on the premises of the manufacturers, but at their local retailers as well, will now have their wish fulfilled
Other brands will also be represented at the Angler World Berlin in the shape of fishing teams who will be demonstrating their baiting skills without hooks at AQUADEMO – Europe’s largest mobile aquarium, which has a capacity of 23,000 litres.

Fishing tours are booming in Scandinavia especially, and this is reflected by the many products offered by tour operators such as Angelreisen E. Kienitz & I. Noelte, DIN TUR and Sportreisen Teltow.
