The European Fishing Tackle Trade Association (EFTTA) is planning to move its headquarters from London to Brussels later this year. According to a report in Angling International, the move is set to be completed in September. The decision is consistent with the activity of the organization, which conducts lobbying in the main hometown of European institutions, and it follows the U.K.’s withdrawal from the European Union, which formally took effect on Jan. 31, 2020. EFTTA was established in London in 1981 with the objective of supporting the European tackle trade industry. Since the end of 2019, EFTTA is run by a new chief executive, Olivier Portrat. Half German and half French, this passionate 55-year-old fisherman and author took the place of the retiring Jean-Claude Bel. He has lived in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands.
