Eat, sleep, fish
TEN miles of fly-fishing on the Grossarler Ache is available to residents of the Grossarler Hof. Day ticket: 45 euros. Permit and licence can be arranged through the hotel. The top beat, including Ötzelsee and the magical kilometre of stream below, is catch-and-release only. Search Grossarler fishing for more details. Grossarler Hof is one of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Visit www.grossarlerhof.at/en for details of accommodation and rates or click on Fly Fishing (bottom right) for more details of fishing packages and guides. I had a guide the following day. It was a cooler, cloudier day and Urs Zulian favoured fishing the lake and the river with weighted nymphs. That caught fish, too.
