Is fly fishing about the flies or the fishing? The bait – called a fly - is not an actual fly but is lightweight all the same. The true art of fly fishing is the casting technique and placing the bait in such a manner that attracts the fish. Here at Hotel Rauter, we are totally dedicated to this ultimate fishing discipline. The region around the Hohe Tauern National Park plays its part in ensuring that this sport is more than just fishing.
It takes a lot of patience as well as plenty of quiet and relaxation to end up with a fresh fish on your line caught from drinking quality water at the end of the day. It is almost a meditative experience that allows you to rediscover the beauty of a slower pace in life. Whether a rushing river, a quiet lake, or a splashing stream, East Tyrol offers wonderful waters that provide diversity for this challenging hobby.
