Fly Fishing

Wednesday | 1 July - 1 September 2021 | ages 12+

You've always wondered what fly fishing is exactly? In a nutshell: The lure, known as a fly, is so light that the line serves as the casting weight. This requires a special casting technique that is meant to imitate insects. So the day starts with a short introduction to this type of fishing before moving on to the Forellensee Weidach trout lake. Here you will learn exciting things about insects and practice fishing with initial exercises. Tasting the freshly caught fish provides a perfect ending to the day.
