Fly fishing

Shortly to arrive in Vaud, does anyone know about fly-fishing in the area? What do you need in the way of permits, where to fish and what with? Costs?

When are the good times of the year to fish?

A fishy smile?

Re: Fly fishing

Hi Projectman - and welcome. Use the search facility, there's a few threads on fishing. I know permits are a bit pricey at my neck of the woods, hopefully another fishy person in Vaud can help you as the rules are bound to be different

Re: Fly fishing

It does depend on which part of Vaud you are living in and where you plan on fishing, (lake, pond, stream)
email this guy for more info maybe,

Re: Fly fishing

Fishing is pretty complicated, Fly-fishing even more so, because fishing for rivers is substantially more complicated than fishing in lakes. Every canton has different rules, and a knowledge of german is really helpful to decipher them all. The rivers in some cantons, (Thurgau, for instance) are sectioned up and placed in the control of an individual Fischverein, and that Verein is charged with upkeep and the distribution of daily and yearly fishing cards. Graubunden, on the other hand, is one of the few cantons that isn't under the pacht system, and people are free to fish all the waters, provided you pay your 40 Sfr. for a day, and running water can only be fished on Sat, Sun, Tues. and Thurs.. Wading is also not allowed.
Fishing in Austria is less complicated, fishing in Germany is more complicated, and I think fishing in France is about equally complicated.
And if you have a lot of disposable income, there are a few hotels along nice stretches of river tha allow guests to fish them exclusively, but that's way out of my price range.

Again, every Canton is different, the best thing to do would be find your local Fishing shop, hope they speak whatever language you do if you don't speak german, and let them point out where to go and what to do. I could never have figured anything out if it hadn't been for the guy at my local fishing shop.

Also, if you can read german, the magazine "Petri Heil" is a pretty good resource.

Re: Fly fishing

Hi

not sure where Vaud is, but there are plenty of opportunities to fly fish in Switzrerland. Yes it can be a bit of a minefield with every kanton having different rules and regulations! In some kantons you have to pay double the price if you don't actually live in the kanton where you want to fish, and some kantons offer day tickets and others only offer monthly or yearly tickets.
I have just starting a fly fishing business here in Switzerland,
www.have-a-go-flyfishing.com , offering beginners days and soon to be added to the website will be guided days to mountain lakes and streams. If you would like any further information please contact me and I'll do my best to help.

Re: Fly fishing

Some Cantons have what is called "Freiangelrecht" in some of their lakes. This means that in those lakes you can fish from the shore without a license using a rod and reel with only one hook and natural bait (no live fish etc., but worms, maggots, bread etc.). Since you also only use one hook for fly fishing, you should also be able to do so with a flyrod. I would first check with a local fishing store or the canton's fishing regulations though.

My girlfriend and I used to love fishing in the states and especially kayak-fishing in the ocean or lakes. We tried it several times in CH and found that the amount of time spent on the water compared to the amount of action you get here is not as well balanced as elsewhere. On top of that, since every canton has different regulations and those differ from a body of water to the next, it was always complicated to figure out what is allowed and what not. The regulations are sometimes so cryptic even locals are not always on teh same page after reading them. Many cantons do not allow fishing from a kayak...

I do believe though that if you invest the time and go fly-fishing in some nice mountain lakes etc. you might get lucky, but you will definitely spend some quality time in beautiful places.

Re: Fly fishing

I fish also from a kayak here and must say that it works as well. The only rule in valais is that it must not be motorised. Here in valais we have some beautiful mountain lakes, some reserves and excellent rivers. Like i said in my messages before, i would be more than happy to show someone around this beautiful canton to experience some excellent trout fishing either fly or any other way.

Re: Fly fishing

I have recently moved to Switzerland (Aargau) from the UK and I can't believe how difficult it is to get a fishing permit here. We are lucky enough to be able to spend time in Ticino were it is a lot simpler. Any information anyone has in regards to Fly Fish in Switzerland would be greatly appreciated as I am starting to pull what is left of my hair out looking at these beautiful Trout streams and not being able to chuck a line at the Trout I can clearly see!!

Many thanks, from The Frustrated Fisherman.

Re: Fly fishing

Hi Windymiller

yes finding your way round the fishing permits here in Switzerland can be a bit of a nightmare. As I've previously written, every kanton has it's own rules so I would suggest checking the kantonal website for the kanton you wish to fish. Some allow day tickets to be purchased, where as others will only allow monthly or yearly tickets (often at double price if you don't actually live in the kanton!!) However, when the summer finally arrives you will be able to access quite a few mountain lakes which are fishable on a day ticket basis. Worth a trip just for the stunning countryside

Tight lines

Re: Fly fishing

this site : http://www.peche-mouche.ch/rivieres.htm
has a list of fly fishing spots in french speaking switzerland, just click on "rivieres" in the menu and go to "parcours de peche" to view the different rivers and lakes. the "Permis de pêche" and "Sites officiels" sections on the same page have info on permits.

Re: Fly fishing

Hi WindyMiller
You should be able to get a permit (Freianglerkarte ) via this link (http://www.ag.ch/bezirksaemter/de/pu...nglerkarte.php) - for 40
CHF.
You can fish in the Hallwiler lake even without it (fishing from the shore).
Good luck !

Re: Fly fishing

Many thanks to all of you that have sent information, it has been very useful. I look forward to getting some local fishing in very soon. In fact I will be going to the Schwarzwald with Brumann's at the end of this month and to Biasca later in the year. I will post details on how it all went after the event; In case anyone else is interested here is a link to the Brumann's webiste and the courses available. (http://www.brumann.ch/index__17--d.html)
