Russian show will reflect state of industry after COVID-19
The state of the fishing tackle industry in Russia will be reflected during the country’s largest show for the sector which takes place next month.
The country is beginning to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and Angling International’s correspondent in the region, Vladimir Struev (above), believes the trade’s recovery will be determined at the Hunting & Fishing in Russia Show in Moscow – one of the few events of its kind taking place in Europe this year.
He said: “Although face masks are still mandatory, restrictions across Russia are gradually being lifted as vaccinations are taking place across the country. Fishing is allowed and tackle shops are back in business.
“The fishing tackle industry is experiencing a growing demand for certain types of gear, especially spinning tackle for trout fishing on the commercial lakes. Demand for sbirulino tackle has also increased. It is used for many types of species, including salmon on the Kola Peninsula.
“We can safely say that the entire industry is being restored – how much will be demonstrated at the Moscow Show.” The Hunting & Fishing in Russia Show takes place from March 11 to 14 in the CEC Expo Centre.
