Father feathers and the lost senses
Father feathers and the lost senses

Time flies, time´s up, those were the days…How do we deal with time? How do we perceive it and how do we spend it meaningfully? In general, the sense and our senses! We have lost a large part of our sensuality, perhaps only misplaced it? Together with his daughter, SCALE editor Frank Steinmann sets out on a journey back to the senses and a time that that was seemingly endless.

Freshwater Seabass in Corsica
Freshwater Seabass in Corsica

The sea bass is probably the most sought-after marine predator in Europe. It can be fished from shore, from boats, from the surface as well as the bottom. It can be found in the North Sea in Norway and in the Atlantic in Morocco and basically everything in between, especially the Mediterranean Sea. This rather opportunistic predator is found in different types of habitats. It likes the brackish waters of mouths and lagoons. But also, surprisingly, it wanders upstream in rivers, sometimes quite far, in fresh water!

Exploring Hokkaido wilderness
Exploring Hokkaido wilderness

You may never find Japan on the “top 10 places to fly fish before you die” lists published in various magazines and on popular fly fishing websites, but since I came to Asia almost 10 years ago, it was always on top of my private fly fishing bucket list.

ESCAPING WINTER TO SUDAN
ESCAPING WINTER TO SUDAN

After our first lockdown experience on Socotra, where we got stuck for almost four months, it was once again time to hit the open road. Nicola Vitali, the owner of Wild Sea Expedition, had been planning a winter trip to Madagascar for us. Unfortunately, as the Covid cases started rising on the island, Madagascar decided to close its borders for EU citizens. But Nicola isn’t the sort of guy to let such things affect his faculty for planning amazing trips. A couple of days later he called and said; let’s go to Sudan then.

Sightfishing in Portugal
Sightfishing in Portugal

You‘ve heard about Portugal – few rainy days, almost 250 days of sunshine per year. The beaches, the old cities of Lisbon and Porto, the impressive monuments, the lovely countryside and the loveliness of the people. There is a reason Portugal has won the World Travel Awards for best holiday destination for the second consecutive year… but let‘s take a look at what I‘m sure you‘re more interested in.

The silent path of the Hobie-ist
The silent path of the Hobie-ist

If you want to escape the colorful and often noisy hustle and bustle of Florida’s beaches for a few quiet moments, you better get yourself into a Hobie Kayak and retreat to the quiet channels of the Gulf of Mexico’s mangrove coast. Here, snook lurk among aerial roots of Rhizophora and bullish redfish scour the intertidal zone in search of eats. Whether with a spin- or fly rod, the wildlife enthusiast gets his money’s worth.Welcome to the quiet path of the Hobie-ist!

We hooked our hearts to SCALE magazine 10 years ago. With the support of great contributing writers and photographers from throughout the fishing world, we started small and, year by year, developed a legion of fishing maniacs who shared our obsession. To all of our hardcore supporters, we thank you, and would like you to join us as we transition from our notorious and well loved flipbook, to a format that can keep us fishing into the future. SCALE will always stick to our stubborn standards of quality writing and photography, and we look forward to another decade of distracting you with big fish, cool stuff, and content pulled in from all over the globe.

1000 CASTS, THAT WAS YESTERDAY ... Hardly any discipline of freshwater fishing has undergone a greater transformation in the last decade than huchen fishing. Once upon a time, catching the secretive large salmonid was reserved only for those who were not afraid of freezing temperatures, nor of extremely tiring casting orgies that were often not crowned with success even after…

FEELING IT IN THE BONES I admit that, compared to many others, I look back on a short fly fishing life. I‘ve only been into this kind of fishing for about 13 years, but if there‘s one thing I realised very early on, it‘s the fact that fly fishing – like almost everything in life – is often subject to…
