East Tyrol: a paradise for fly-fishers

When fly-fishers travel hundreds of kilometres from Italy, Switzerland and Holland to East Tyrol just to go fishing, then it has to be something special. And they admit it – fly-fishers are inspired by the opportunities which the Isel and the little Drau offer. East Tyrol has always been a paradise for anglers and fishermen. From the wild and romantic mountain streams through to the somewhat more calmer waters of the rivers heading out of the valley – 33 different fish species live in East Tyrol.

Adventure fishing at 2500 metres altitude

Of great interest to true fishermen is the fact that in East Tyrol ‘adventure fishing’ is indeed possible. Where else can you swing your fly rod at around 2500 metres altitude in the emerald green lakes? Quite a number of hoteliers and innkeepers have fishing areas, or rent some. A few hotels provide package deals for anglers. From a value-for-money guesthouse, to an exclusive hotel, including all the comforts and guides – East Tyrol has something for everyone.
