Yes, so was the first international fly fishing festival in St. Petersburg completed. The first day was a flurry of activities, shows of all kinds, especially perhaps of casters from several parts of Russia. Here were Siberian instructors interspersed with experts from Morskva. Of course I tied flies on the big screen and answered questions from many interested listeners. Overall maybe the outdoor event drew about 500 visitors. The interest in Russia is growing exponentially, and the next year it is certainly even more! Cool was the youth competition in which winners were all under 10 years old. what do you say about a 4 year old in 3rd place - Cool! Russia is on the go!
