FLY FISHING IN SOUTH TYROL
THE DIFFERENT HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHT
Fascinating fly fishing is offered in the Val Passiria in varied waters, with mysterious, fast sections and slowly flowing areas, surrounded by an impressive mountain view. Ideal conditions for every fly fisherman, whether beginner or professional. The Schildhöfe Private Fishery has the fishing rights of the Passer. Fishing starts on the second Sunday in February and ends on 30 September. Don't miss the Passer with its fascinating fishing. The Passer has a total length of 21 km and is divided into four zones:
Zone for all allowed baits, fly course, no kill zone and a zone with private club waters.
Most of South Tyrol's waters belong to the salmonid waters and are mainly occupied by trout. Pike, carp, tench and perch live in well-known lakes. The highlight of course is the catching of a marbled trout, a large, indigenous species of trout in South Tyrol. In order to fish in all public waters, a valid state fishing licence for tourists (type D) and a day fishing permit for the respective stretch of water are required. This fishing licence is available in the tourist offices of the region, non-transferable and valid for 10 years throughout Italy.
There are many different styles to practise this kind of fishing. Fly-fishing in our country concentrates mainly on trout, grayling and char and in its most common form refers to fishing with a classic fly rod and floating line. We wish each guest a “Petri Heil” and much success at the water.
