12/03/2013 Which hound can the huntsman rely upon and which fly fools the fish?
The campaigns of Jagdgebrauchshundeverein Augsburg e.V. (Hunting Dog Association) at JAGEN UND FISCHEN from 16 to 19 January 2014 provide a worthwhile insight into the differences amongst, and the training of, the four-legged huntsmen’s helpers and provide motivation to get the dog that is right for you. Protecting nature in practice is the topic of large special show put on by the Jägervereinigung Augsburg e.V. Fly fishermen and those wanting to become fly fishermen will see real experts fly tying, casting and giving product advice.
Special show put on by Jägervereinigung Augsburg e.V.
"Hunting is protecting nature in practice" is the motto of the l500 square metre special show mounted by the Jägervereinigung Augsburg e.V. High mountain regions and low mountain ranges, rivers, lakes as well as areas cultivated for forestry and agriculture are maintained all the time by hunting. Visitors gain a deep insight into all these habitats through highly authentic dioramas, exhibits and teaching aids. Threatened species from the animal world, such as the golden eagle, rock partridge, rock ptarmigan, artic hare, marmot, capercaillie and grouse plus grey partridge, for example, paly the main roles here and draw attention to the efforts made by huntsmen to maintain this diversity through their preservation work. The contribution of the Bavarian Ladies‘ Forum is devoted to life at the waters‘ edge. The lady hunters will be providing information on valuable game and products from nature‘s garden. In the living workshops the visitors will be able to look over the shoulder of the bee-keeper, the knife-maker, and the wood carver and marvel at the skill and craftsmanship required to finish leather and pelts. The Jägervereinigung Augsburg e.V. and the Kreisjägerschaft Dillingen e.V. will be providing information on the initial training and subsequent training in their hunting schools. The "Jungen Jägern Bayern" are committed to the active protection of the environment and they will be recruiting committed youngsters at the trade fair. Those wishing to train with weapons responsibly will be very welcome in the interactive rifle range.
Four-legged hunting assistants
JAGEN UND FISCHEN is the ideal prelude for the Jagdgebrauchshundeverein Augsburg e.V. to its 125-year association celebrations. About 30 various breeds of dog will be there in January and the for the first time the Deutsche Brackenverein e.V. will be there with Brandlbracken and Steirischen Rauhaarbracken dogs. At the informal dog shows put on every day on the stage, not only the features of the breeds but also their potential uses for hunting are presented. The "Hounds in action" presentations provide an insight into everything covered by the extensive education of the hunting dog. They will demonstrate the committed four-legged gun dogs at work, Apportieren or retrieving game, Bringselverweisen, returning with some of the game in its mouth denoting that it has found the game dead, Totverbellen, when the dog finds the dead animal and barks to the indicate that he has found the quarry and Vorstehen, dead set. The work with the dog dangler as well as how important obedience is for hunting dogs will be showed live. What hunting dogs can do besides this will surprise even experienced dog handlers and make then smile. During the displays the trainers will be explaining in detail the individual steps which have to be achieved to achieve the skills showed. Questions about dog training will be welcome at any time. The breeders of the presented breeds will be at the exhibition area of the Jagdgebrauchshundevereins Augsburg e.V. on all four days of the trade fair and they will be pleased to assist you with honest advice about the hunting dog you need to meet your requirements by passing on their experience.
Accurate shooting in all weathers
Blaser Jagdwaffen GmbH will be displaying their Blaser R8 Professional Success rests at JAGEN UND FISCHEN for the first time. Driven by the success of the R8 Professional Success, Blaser is combining ergonometric excellence with traditional shapes in this new rest. Modern plastics are indisputably far better a material for use as stocks, above all if the most important thing is accurate shooting all the time in all weathers. The decision by Blaser to use synthetic mounting is therefore a brave but logical one. Those already having an R8 professional will find it easy and cheap to upgrade his rifle. The elegant combination of high-tech and tradition can be supplied with a barrel length of either 52 or 58 centimetres as requested.
At this JAGEN UND FISCHEN a young Indian eagle owl together with a young sparrowhawk will be complementing the repertoire of Falknerei Schreyer with its demonstration on stage and its demonstration flights out in the open. Even Schorschi, the imposing golden eagle will be spreading his elegant wings for the public – a wonderful insight into the rich heritage of falconry.
Perfection in fly fishing
Who is cleverer? The fish or the fly flisherman? Visitors to JAGEN UND FISCHEN will find out from a true master of this skill, Mirjana Pavlic, which materials and which technology will be successful in baiting almost every fish. She will be supporting the Augsburg Angling centre with customer advice backed up with her experience and technical knowledge about the latest fly rods from Winston as well as fly reels from Nautilus and Bauer – all three firms manufacture top quality products. "Even when I was just four years old I would stand for hours in cold rivers, forgetting the world around me and experiencing one of the happiest of times when at the age of five I held the first fish I caught in my hands. Even today I still experience the same happiness when I have a fish in my hands", says Mirjana Pavlic, who grew up on a farm in Slovenia and learned from her brother how to catch fish in her bare hands. "Later I cobbled together my first hooks with mother’s sewing needles and fished with worms as bait, until I watched a fly fisherman. I was at the same time stunned and fascinated by this technique. He let me try out casting, winding in and landing his catch, and afterwards I did it myself. The fascination has not released its grip on me since then and life has been kind to me since I have been able to make a career from my hobby", says Pavlic, managing director of Flyfishing Europe, who is pleased to be able to provide trade fair visitors with professional and customer-orientated advice.
Franz Xaver Ortner, Ruben Groenendijk, Erwin Tibad, Dieter Englisch and Frank Müller are the experts when it comes to fly tying. At JAGEN UND FISCHEN these artists will be demonstrating their technique, dexterity and above all their wealth of ideas in dealing with the creative use of all sorts of materials. Professionals such as Uwe Kaptain, Ralph Warnke and Sascha Bachmann will show how to be successful on the casting site specially set up for this. The let the flies land just where the fisherman’s intuition tells him that the biggest catch can be expected. We really want visitors to watch and try it out for themselves.
The Hunters and Anglers forum are exciting hunting grounds or fishing grounds for brand new developments plus valuable tips and tricks from real professionals with relative experience. The aroma from the game and fish being cooked in the kitchen lure ambitious amateur cooks and the Ortlfinger Fischerstüble restaurant sates hunger with tasty dishes from indigenous fish.

Everything went off well: 122 exhibitors were presenting their innovations for the coming season to 2,144 visitors from the trade at GOLF EUROPE 2013
The Augsburg Trade Fair was held from 29 September to 1 October 2013 on 8,500 m2 of exhibition space and was all about golf. Professionals and representatives from 29 countries met in a sporting atmosphere at the international trade fair for golf: GOLF EUROPE.
"We really are going in the right direction", stated the managing director of Messe Augsburg, Gerhard Reiter, "The leading businesses from the industry such as TaylorMade adidas Golf Company, which presented itself with the TaylorMade, adidas Golf, Ashworth and Adams Golf brands, and the Wilson Sporting Goods Company, felt really comfortable in Augsburg, as did the other exhibitors who numbered more than 120 – that is the best foundation for developing this top-drawer trade fair, which was held in Augsburg for the second time and has now already been held on a total of twenty occasions."
Andreas Dorsch, the managing director of the Golfmanagement Verband Deutschland, confirmed that, "With its second appearance in Augsburg Golf Europe has given a clear sign that it is going in the right direction. It has established itself as an important venue for the industry and in its present format it really has justified its right to exist. Golf Management Verband Deutschland will continue to commit itself to working together as the ideal partner with Golf Europe."
A high-power supporting programme rounds off the exhibition programme. The recently introduced Coaching Seminar laid on by the ETPI, and organised by the PGA European Tour, provided answers to the questions posed by professional golfers, backed up with in-depth scientific data about the human body, driving and the flight of the ball. This multi-disciplinary approach which is already used by the European Tour players, ensures that the best possible development programme can be produced, tailored to meet the requirements of the individual.
Those who are interested can expand their specialist knowledge and pick up tips and ideas at first hand in the lectures presented by experts at no cost in the Learn & Earn Zone, organised by the PGAs of Europe and the PGA of Germany. Felix Lechner, marketing manager of the partner working together with GOLF EUROPE, notably the PGA of Germany, which provides intellectual and professional support, is pleased that the programme of lectures has been so well received, "The trade fair is much too good to do without it".
The happy PRODUCT AWARD Winner in 2013
Exhibitors with particularly innovative products were afforded an opportunity to submit their new products in a total of nine categories with the aim of winning the GOLF EUROPE PRODUCT AWARD. An independent international panel of experts filled with well-known representatives from the trade, the media and professional players assessed the 62 product innovations submitted in the course of the trade fair.
In the Caddy category the SugarMonkeys won with QOD and the HAAS commercial agency won with its SUN MOUNTAIN COMBO, in the Clothing category the 1st prize went to Reithmeier Sportmodenvertrieb for its Wild Green.

To this end the association, its representatives and well-known ambassadors such as the PGA-Professional, Felix Lubenau, campaign on behalf of children and youngsters from socially-deprived areas in Germany and had a stand at the trade fair.
After the trade fair the visitors and exhibitors visited the second-oldest town in Germany
After the trade fair most exhibitors and visitors took advantage of the opportunity to stroll around the wonderful old town centre of Augsburg as well and allow themselves to be spoiled by the gastronomic delights on offer. The short distance from the trade fair to the centre of Augsburg offered the visitors and exhibitors an outstanding opportunity to take a leisurely stroll around the town in the evening.

09/24/2013 The elite manufacturers of sporting rifles present itself at JAGEN UND FISCHEN 2014
More and more reputable manufacturing firms and experts are discovering the JAGEN UND FISCHEN trade fair to be the ideal showcase for their products and services, scheduled as it is early on in the year from 16th to 19th January 2014. The well-known Swiss dog-trainer Hans Schlegel will be speaking in the Hunting forum about conflict-free man-dog relationships and he will be presenting his successful concept. Benedikt Götzfried will be inspiring the visitors with his surface-bait lectures and products.
Even now project manager Melanie Söhnel is describing the level of registrations for JAGEN UND FISCHEN as exceptionally encouraging since many of the satisfied exhibitors from 2013 have taken advantage of the discount available on early-bookings. The Suzuki firm, for example, will be putting on a display in Hall 3 with its own cross-country vehicle course in addition to its trade fair stand.
Large selection of sporting rifles
In addition to the firm J.G. Anschütz GmbH & Co. KG, Blaser Jagdwaffen GmbH, Mauser Jagdwaffen GmbH as well as J. P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH have set their sights on JAGEN UND FISCHEN as well and will be attending with their own exhibition stands. The range of rifles will be supplemented by the successful used weapons show put on by the Waffen Beer company from Kempten, at whose stand the manufacturers Leica, Minox, Swarovski and Zeiss will also be represented with their high quality hunting sights.
The Traditional Hunting Horn
The "Horrido" e.V. hunting horn brass group from Augsburg has been supporting the JAGEN UND FISCHEN trade fair right from its beginnings with its appearances as well as organising other brass and singer groups for stage performances. According to Herbert Ullmann, the deputy chairman, the programme also looks highly promising again in 2014 since some promises have already been made, including that, for example, from the Donau-Ries hunting choir. In addition to this, Ullmann is hoping to canvass youngsters, since the 24 active "Horrido" brass players, whose repertoire covers far in excess of 100 pieces of music, could do with some young blood. "Young active members would even be able to benefit from free training from our experienced master horn player, Heinz Egger", explains Ullmann. The high point of the club this year was the festival service held on 15 September 2013, with which the "Horrido" Augsburg e.V. hunting horn brass group celebrated its 30th anniversary. According to Ullmann, some of the trade fair highlights in 2014 will be all the hunting horn groups blowing together on Sunday afternoon – an exceptional event which huntsmen and anglers with an awareness of their traditions should not miss.
Surface bait – simply spectacular
Experiencing the spectacle live, how a fish attacks the bait is fascinating every time you see it. "When the bait is below the surface all you feel is a tug on the rod, but when surface bait is used you experience the whole works", promises Benedikt Götzfried, who was gripped by angling addiction at just ten years of age and hasn’t let go since then. During his Business Administration studies in which he concentrated on Market Research and Marketing, the young man from Memmingen started working for himself with his Topwater-Productions brand. At JAGEN UND FISCHEN next January he will be enthralling the trade fair visitors to the angling forum with his lecture on surface bait, the most spectacular form of spin fishing. Even now, the expert in predatory fish is looking forward to sharing his expertise, "If it does get you in its grip, as it did me, then I shall be glad to pass on my experience concerning the latest technical devices in use, suitable bait and the perfect places to use it". His colourful bait bears names such as, for example, High Flyer, Honey Bee, Dream Catcher or Little Freak, and he manufactures them almost exclusively himself. They entrance the eyes of both anglers and fish alike. In the event of loss you can even purchase adhesive eyes afterwards as spare parts. In some cases Götzfried also has components such as leaders, hooks, snap rings, fishing rods and spinning rods made to his own designs. "In German waters surface bait is ideal for catching trout, chub, asp, perch, cat fish and pike, but surface bait can also be used to catch ever so many different types of fish all round the world", explains Götzfried, who is happy to pass on his experience, such as, for example, using darker bait when the sky is light, because it provides a greater contrast. But you have to practice this type of spin fishing. Since the bait does not give off a scent, the attention of the fish has to be drawn to the bait by the angler’s knack of creating movement and generating pressure waves.
The Man-dog relationship
"Training dogs can be really easy" is the motto of the well-known Swiss dog trainer Hans Schlegel, whose training method is simple, clear and well-structured, resulting in a close rapport and teamwork with the most loyal and oldest companion of mankind. For Hans Schlegel it is the small but major difference between social and formal learning which make a dog obedient and calm, enabling man and dog to live together without conflict under all different sorts of environmental circumstances. The Swiss gentleman demonstrated live in his hunting forum how much more pleasure a person can derive from his best friend if his dog is well trained. "I want to teach dog owners how they can reinforce a dog’s understanding of language by hearing the same command repeated constantly in a calm but clear voice, the tone of which leaves the dog in no doubt that obeying the command is not optional." explains Hans Schlegel in an interview with JAGEN UND FISCHEN. Hans Schlegel believes that the most important thing of in-depth dog training is the relationship between man and dog. From his many years of experience with dogs and their owners, he knows that the majority of all dog owners have an admittedly affectionate bond with their dog, but it does tend to be rather material. Just 30 per cent of all dog owners manage to build up a relationship with their dog which is cordial and genuine in all respects without resorting to treats or other aids – simply with sufficient exercise, discipline and affectionate inclination to pat it gently on the tum or flank as a reward. Hans Schlegel reveals, "I learned this traditional method of motivation when training cats of prey. It is every animal tamer’s life insurance policy".
"A dog is of course much less dangerous that a lion, but in its mindset it is still a predatory animal, which is why it is always wrong to treat a dog as a human." Only five per cent of humans are top dogs, who never look back, never ask questions and do not enter into discussion. The others are only capable of achieving leader level by undergoing personal change. "Those who talk to their dog all the time will not get anywhere. That is like having a partner who keeps up a running commentary on everything all the time", explains the Swiss gentleman grinning.
Hans Schlegel and dog trainers trained by him will be available at their trade fair stand every day to pass on information and respond to questions with the aim of helping dog owners build up a relationship of mutual trust with their dog on a permanent basis.

06/18/2013 JAGEN UND FISCHEN - The productive network between Trade Fair, Speakers and Exhibitors
The productive network between Trade Fair, Speakers and Exhibitors is expanding – preparations are running full steam ahead
In 2014 J. G. Anschütz GmbH & Co. KG from Ulm will be presenting its hunting weapons at its own trade fair stand for the first time and the almost lifelike dioramas of the Augsburger Jägervereinigung e.V. and the Bayerisches Jägerinnenforum are offering the opportunity to go on an instructional training excursion. In addition to the drastic consequences for both man and beast, the flooding along the banks of the river Elbe does also have its benefits, for the stocks of pike-perch at least, explained Sebastian Hänel, expert on pike-perch and speaker at the Anglers‘ forum at the JAGEN UND FISCHEN trade fair to be held from 16th to the 19th January 2014 in a brief interview.
The trade fair management is very pleased to be able to welcome the firm J. G. Anschütz GmbH & Co. KG from Ulm as the first exhibitor to register in January. "As a manufacturer of high-precision sporting and hunting rifles, the 17th JAGEN UND FISCHEN provides us with an opportunity to present our products to hunters and members of gun clubs. The objective of this is to obtain feedback from the market straight away. In addition to this, we believe that this trade fair will offer us an opportunity to talk with a large number of hunters and those interested in hunting from all over southern Germany and to exchange information about our products with those with practical hunting experience", explained managing director Jochen Anschütz. The Waffen Beer firm will also be amongst the exhibitors again in 2014 and will continue to expand the successful used weapons show for the trade fair.
On Thursday and Friday classes of school children will be the guests of JAGEN UND FISCHEN and they will not be charged an entrance fee. Certified experts will be explaining not only the aquatic realm of German waters, but also the life of wild animals in the field, woodland and farmland. This will be a good opportunity to quench the pupils thirst for knowledge with lively impressions from the artificial, but nevertheless lifelike, dioramas created by the Augsburger Jägervereinigung e.V.. In addition to this, the special show put on by the Forum of lady hunters in the Bayerisches Jagdverband e.V. entitled "Life at the water’s edge" shows the fascinating diversity of waterfowl and other species of animals living in the vicinity of water in Germany.
The Altbayrisch-Schwäbischer Gauverband has promised to put on a display of very special folk dances on the stage again at the weekend over which the trade fair is open. The Gauschlag – a Bavarian folk dance as well as the popular Gau-Tanz, a variation of the Stettiner Kreuzpolka, the figures of which are only danced by the Altbayrisch-Schwäbischer Gauverband. Those not wishing to wait until January 2014 will have an opportunity to see two groups as early as the open-air concert to be held on the occasion of the Munich Beer Festival in October.
"For us anglers the flooding of the Elbe doesn’t just begin when the dykes have been breached, but much earlier ", explains Sebastian Hänel, pike-perch expert at the JAGEN UND FISCHEN trade fair. "The water level of the Elbe was already very high throughout the whole of May, which was very helpful for the spawning of the pike-perch, since this type of fish needs murky waters to achieve greatest success when spawning. The sensitive, freshly hatched spawn not only benefit from the waters being muddied by the flooding, but also from the wealth of nutrients provided by flooded fields which have been manured and the effluent from sewage works. The young pike-perch hover in the water below flooded trees and find a table richly-laid with food. Just the slightest drop in the water level will cause the young fish to withdraw into deeper waters immediately which also benefits their numbers. Perhaps the pike-perch population is moved downstream, as was already observed during the flooding in 2002. The inundation of more land would be beneficial for the stocks of pike-perch and would minimise the risk of the population being moved downstream. The heating oil in the river is not a problem for this species of fish, as it floats on the surface of the water like fat does on soup and comes ashore in Hamburg at some stage. Hänel, who is happy to fish in troubled waters, preferably for pike-perch, believes that, "If the situation was not so serious for many people, greater appreciation could be derived no doubt from the beneficial aspects of the flooding".
However, Sebastian Hänel is not the only expert passing on his knowledge to visitors at the sought after Angling forum at JAGEN UND FISCHEN 2014. Torsten Ahrens is also part of the team again and he will be passing on his experiences in his exciting manner with which we are familiar. At present the expert on predatory fish is in Iceland and he is already able to rejoice at two prime catches: one was a massive cod measuring 1.48 metres in length and weighing 32 kilogrammes, which means it ranks amongst the top five largest cod ever caught with a line and rod, as well as a capital halibut measuring 2.1 metres in length and a massive 119 kilogrammes. "Just landing this fish alone took one hour and forty-five minutes", confides Ahrens to JAGEN UND FISCHEN.
Benedikt Götzfried, also an expert on predatory fish expands the range of knowledge in the forum on the subject of surface bait as the most spectacular type of spin fishing and Stefan Seuß, professional guide and specialist in catfish, will be reporting twice a day in various lectures on the fascination of catfish angling.

04/29/2013 JAGEN UND FISCHEN in Augsburg continues its road to success
According to Managing Director of Messe Augsburg Gerhard Reiter, the results of the latest visitor and exhibitor survey speak for themselves: "The consistently positive feedback confirms our commitment as Southern Germany's no. 1 trade fair to provide an even higher quality offering the upcoming year for our exhibitors and visitors from far beyond the borders of Bavaria and Swabia." JAGEN UND FISCHEN will take place for the third time from 16 to 19 January, 2014 in the halls of Messe Augsburg. This year, exhibitors can benefit from committing early with an early-bird discount.
Facts and figures convince
Taking place early in the year, JAGEN UND FISCHEN will continue to be the first trade fair to start off the season, which is frequented by hunters, fishers and nature lovers on the look-out for valuable information, the very latest products and expert dialogs. 200 exhibitors from 12 countries delighted more than 21,000 fairgoers in January 2013, who - according to Peter Beer, exhibitor and initiator of the collective booth of the company Waffen Beer as well as the Used Weapons Show - even made it all the way from Switzerland and Southern Tyrol. The positive further development of the fair commended by Beer will continue: The flexible and competent trade fair team, whose service and expert advice satisfied nearly 90 percent of the exhibitors, is hard at work on the expansion of the fields of hunting dogs, fly fishing and boats as well as the expansion of the off-road vehicle sector.
The versatile supporting program consisting of special shows, hunter and fishing forums, fashion shows, birds of prey presentations, an off-road vehicle course, performances by folk groups and hunting-horn blowers delighted visitors and exhibitors alike. In 2014, the fair will once again provide plenty of variety, with renowned and seasoned experts from all sectors attending the forums, and providing the latest in fish and game delicacies. 87 percent of the visitors had a good to very good overall impression of the fair and 86 percent would certainly or probably return. A proof that JAGEN UND FISCHEN has established its reputation as a popular trade fair.
89 percent of the exhibitors rated the atmosphere at the last JAGEN UND FISCHEN with a good to excellent and 90 percent gave the same ratings to the fair's state-of-the-art building services. Backed by these figures, the decision to participate again in 2014 is surely an easy one, and we are offering for the very first time a five-percent early-bird discount, with the same pricing structure for all stand types as before. Those wishing to make use of the discount must submit their binding registration by August 15, 2013 to our project management. Early registrations make it easier for our trade fair team to plan the hall arrangements in line with participants' wishes, as well as the early development of PR measures, such as visitor brochures and media communication - all benefits that Messe Augsburg would like to pass on to make a positive impression for its exhibitors.
