Variety: 6 beats, each with its own characteristics:
from romantic mountain stream to wide river; from lively rivulet to mountain lakes at altitudes above 2,500 metres

Reliability: The fishing grounds are spread over 3 valleys so, even when there’s a storm or the weather is unpredictable, you will almost always find a place to fish. 4 of our 6 waters can be fished all year round and are not influenced by snowmelt.

Proximity: Even though our waters are spread over East Tyrol and Carinthia, the distance from the hotel is between 1 and 40 kilometres.

Exclusivity: Fishing in our waters is reserved exclusively for our hotel guests. Permits are restricted to 1 fisherman per river kilometre (on the Greater Drau 1 angler per riverbank kilometre). Sometimes you never see another person fishing all day long.

Best stock: Stringent regulations guarantee top-class fishing, sustainable care of the environment and thus an impressive stock of autochthonous, healthy fish. Here we have no “catch and release”, but your catch is limited to 1 fish per day, which can be cooked only in one of our restaurants. Grayling females are protected all year round, Danube salmon have to be released. We stock up only the legally prescribed minimum and only with locally raised fish.
Assistance    Our experienced hotel staff, well- compiled information and on-site guides make sure our fishing guests have everything they need.

Enjoy your own fly-fishing holiday in the waters of the Hotel Sonne in Lienz and become one of our enthusiastic regulars like so many fly fishermen from all over Europe.
