Carp Strobel - Austria

Carp Strobel (Austria)
By Stephan Dombaj
Feat.: Nikolai Prietl

The “real” Strobel is located in Andean Patagonia and famous for it´s giant amount of giant Rainbows – check this out > Gucci Of The Outdoors (2007). The Strobel-lake I am talking about is a former industrial two-lake system that underwent a development to a naturally reconstructed habitat that also holds a decent amount of species including some awesome gamefishes (Catfish, Carp, Pike, Zander, Perch and two Blackbass in the first one, wherein the second one holds some reeeeeeal good carps)


It turned out to be a hardly describable torture-track for rod and reel. Just the right thing to blast some cast towards some real carp giants.

Kyll Creek by Paulo

"Kyll Creek" – bad conditions one more time.
By: Paulo Hoffmann
feat.: Alex von Dombois

Shallow water-levels, brownish water and almost 30 degrees – in other words: goddamn circumstances for trout fishery. Streamers made too much row and nymphs were refused. Thus, we had no other choice as trying dryflies. Result wasn’t considerable, but there was a result anyway. Due to the fact, that Alex only had an 8 weight rod spooled with sinking line, we had to take the 3 weight yellow line in turns.

CDC was the key to success – dark and small pattern were necessary to get any contact with fish. Fishing on suspicion was almost equal zero, we had to wait until we could see them rise.
