It has been a few years since I last attended Germany’s premier Antique Fishing Tackle Auction organised by Udo Hilderbrant. Last time it was in NordRhein-Westfalen and I went with my son, who was born not far away, to show him were we lived for three years.
Udo has moved the auction but it’s still in North West Germany and he still manages to find some nice items of tackle.
Here is a link to the site with the details of the next sale on 25th April 2009, I just wish I could go as I had three great years living and working in Germany.
For any of you considering bidding Udo speaks almost perfect English, certainly better than my German.
