And of course, the most spectacular of the technical tools is the uniform appearance, the special equipment and the modern service SUVs and motor boats. The first 20 off-road vehicles were solemnly handed over on the Danube side of the Budapest Association of Fishing Associations on May 4, 2017, followed by another 15 on October 25, 2018.
